auxiliary heat vs. emergency heat
I have a Bryan Evoltion Control heat pump system. My house runs entirely on electric power. Recently with the advent of higher charges we've decided to lower the thermostat setting at night, going from 70-62. We've noticed in the morning that the auxiliary heat kicks on.
What's the difference between auxiliary heat and emergency heat? The Evolution System has both. Does auxiliary heat expend more energy as the emergeny heat setting? Am I spending more $ in setting back my thermostat at night just to have the system work harder to reach the desired temp?
I live outside Philadelphia where the winter has been mild to say the least but any savings I can obtain would help.
Thanks in advance, Bill.
