I had a load calculation already done:
Heat loss: 30,050
Heat gain: 12,570
A 2.5 ton was suggested.
I looked up Goodman’s 3 TON 13 SEER heating capacity here:
Am I interpreting this correctly ?
If I need a load of 30,000 btus hr., the chart says the HP cant provide any more than that when the temp gets below 40 degrees outside? And the kWHours are 2.8 at that temperature.
I pay .10 cents a kWH.
So without even calculating any backup heat strips or natural gas at that temperature of 40 degrees or below (balance point), the MINIMUM electric consumption for just the HP would be: 24 hours a day at 2.8 kWH (24 hours x .28 cents/hour = $6.72 day/ $200 dollars month) to maintain a load of 30,000 btu’s . Plus any cost for natural gas or resistance heat on top of that when the temp outside gets lower?
Is that correct?
