That will depend on the cost (and availability) of gas in your  area, when compared to electric costs. It will also depend on the  climate. At very cold temperatures (below 40 F) the heat transfer  element of an air/Freon heat pump does not deliver heat, and the  less efficient electric heat...
A commonly used formula is 600-650 square feet per ton. So it would  be recommended to use a 2-ton heat pump for a 1300 square foot  home. However, other variables are often considered, too, such as  the age of the house.
