Franco Oyuela commented on Chris Morin's blog post Heat Pump Break-Even COP's
"Heat pumps are ideally suited for the Northwest climate, delivering efficiencies 2-4 times that of electric resistance space heating. That is because heat pumps don’t actually make heat, they use a refrigerant and a compressor to extract heat…"

UPDATED: Break Even COP’s for MA

How do you know if you should install a ductless mini-split, or upgrade your air-conditioner to a heat-pump and create a dual-source application during replacement this Winter?  I have been asked this countless times over the past week!  I personally always prefer the option of multiple fuel sources, particularly since energy prices have been all over the place during the last decade.  Fortunately, using averaged…
