Heat pump or oil
OK, I had posted a thread a couple months ago when I began new construction plans, well we are ready to have contractors start rough-ins next week. So quickly, I cannot afford GEO, that is out and Gas is NOT available in the area. So I had decided on Oil fired forced air HVAC. The builder and HVAC folks feel I should take a good look and consideration at heat pump. The home is 2900 sqft two story w/basement country colonial in Berks County PA. I am affraid of the future for oil, but on the other hand I don't have much experience with HP. Our first home we rented when we got married 15 yrs ago had HP and all we remember is that it blew cool air and we never felt warm. I know things are much different now. What do need to know? I need feedback fast as I have to decide by next monday!!
Thanks for your input!
