Is a heat pump better than a furnace?

A heat pump is an efficient way to heat your home, especially in the Pacific NW where our average temperatures are above freezing most of the time.  However, there are many decision factors that come into play when you are replacing your existing heating system, or contemplating what to use for your new house.

A very good way to go is a heat pump with a natural gas furnace, and you can combine two of the very best ways to heat your home with what is called a dual fuel system.  When the temperatures drop below 35 degrees your gas furnace can take over the heating duties, or a gas furnace can quickly heat your home in the mornings and the heat pump can easily maintain that heat all day long.
