That will depend on the cost (and availability) of gas in yourarea, when compared to electric costs. It will also depend on theclimate. At very cold temperatures (below 40 F) the heat transferelement of an air/Freon heat pump does not deliver heat, and theless efficient electric heat kicks in. In a...
