    Hybrid Heat cost program

    I have a customer that has a 92% AFUE gas heater 1 stage (the heater is stayings)and I told them to get a HEAT PUMP instead of an A/C since we get a BIG BREAK 5 cents per KW Vs 15 cents a KW from Oct 15 -May 15. I wanted someone to let her know I am not justing pushing a heat pump because it costs alittle more.thanks JC
    It's NOT the BRAND,it's the company that installs it!!!!!

    5 cents a KW?
    Dang. With a heat pump, that makes heating cheap.

    You would need NG to be 68 cents a therm, to match the heat pump at a COP of 2. Which most heat pumps are above that at any temp above 10°F.

    Sorry, I don't have a good program for the comparison.

    Work it out in excel!

    Sounds like it would be good to have a work-able spreadsheet at your finger tips with that electric rate!

    I could send you a good start - what are the rules around here regarding email addresses?
