Energy cost - heat pump vs. natural gas
Our subdivision in Henderson County NC is looking into having natural gas installed.
Most of us have heat pumps , and some of us have recently had new heat pumps installed.
The subdivision is trying to promote having the gas run through, and is advertising the energy bills will save us money.
When I've looked at similar square footage homes with natural gas heat, I noticed higher costs for every month.
Is the A/C part of the heat pump cheaper to operate than an A/C unit someone would have installed outdoors where they have a natural gas furnace?
How do I find out the answer for this location? Any suggestions?
