Heating Ventilating and Air Conditioning

Should you replace a central air unit or go with a new air source heat pump or electric plenum heater in Buffalo Minnesota if the furnace lp is 15 years old?

A heat pump might be the best hedge against rising fuel costs,

plus it offers the versatility of providing cooling as well as

heating. However, heat pumps usually are not adequate to provide

heating in really cold climates, so you would have to augment it

with some other heat source. A 15 year old furnace should not need

replacing, so using it with the heat pump might be the best

solution.
