I am thinking of going with the Hybrid Heat-Pump/Oil furnace route this winter. I live in New York State, lower portion of state.
I have never even been in a house that I know of with a heat pump. I hear that the air comes out cold? Or feels cold? Does the house feel cold? Or is it just the air from the registers is not as warm as the furnace. As long as the house feels warm, thats my main concern.
Is there anyone that has a heat pump in New York state that can comment on its performance above 35 degrees? I am hesistant to invest money in one if the house will not be comfortable.
Most homes around here have oil heat, not very many heat pumps, so I figured the reason must be that heat pumps are not very good at heating real winter climates?
