    Amperage in colder weather

    Will a heat pump draw less amperage in say, 30-40 degree weather as opposed to 50-65 degree weather? How much difference would that make?

    I'm trying to figure out the difference. Since the heat pump is actually putting out fewer BTU's, then is it actually drawing less amperage, too? If so, how much of a difference would that make? I'm not factoring in the possible aux heat cycling on, just trying to figure to actual compressor working difference.

    Thanks!
