We just rescently bought a house that has a heat pump installed i have two questions regarding this heat pump.
Are heat pumps really that more efficient even if its really cold to the point it runs almost all the tine as i am told it may do at times.
Also my ac/heat unit is primary heat pump and has emergency heat backup which are the coils inyou heater. So if the heat pump can't keep up at a certain point im told the coils intheheater will kick on to help heat the house up and catch up the heat pump or if we wanted we can switch it over to emergency heat which would utilize the coils only andnot thwmore energy efficient heat pump im told.
The current thermostat is very old and i would like to upgrade it to a digital programmable thermostat. Now being that it's primary heat pump and backup coil heat do i need a multistage compatible heat pump thermostat or a single stage?
Sorry so much information and question it's mu first heat pumpTags: system, Heat pump heating, certain point im, pump, primary heat pump
