Hello, My wife and I are looking to purchase a new home. We found one that we really like, but when we looked at it, the electric? furnace thing in the basement had a sticker on it dated from 1979. I know this house has/uses a heat pump, could that be the reason why the furnace is so old? When you have a heat pump, does it use the furnace? Is it typical for a furnace to last that long if you are using a heat pump? Ive googled and googled and I am just really confused on it all lol.
They said the AC was 3 years old, isnt the heat pump built into the a/c unit outside?
