I live in SE PA in a 3,000 sq. ft home with an additional 1,000 sq. ft in the basement. I have a 22 yr. old AC unit and a 11 yr old Nat. gas furnace. I am planning to live in my house forever. Should I go with the heat pump over the AC unit if it is only $300 more. My electric rates are 6.67 per KwH & my nat. gas rate is $0.60244/CCF Let me know what you think! I appreciate all of your help!
