The difference between the two.
You must understand the difference of what heat pump ,and straight cool is because often installers would tell you a straight cool is cheaper to install than a heat pump unit.(Scratching your head yet?).
What you then ask in return is! Will I have heat their answer would be yes you would ,one thing they do not specify is that you will have E-heat (displayed in your thermostat) which is electric heat meaning KW’S Kilowatts per hr out of your pocket just imagine 19.5 KW’S per hour you do the math.
On the other hand an air conditioning heat pump does not use ”KW’S” It uses the same gas that is in the system by heating it to high temperature in reverse blowing that heat into your home so it is much more economical.
