Intimidating words that compare the cost of operating a heat pump against operating straight electric heat.

Graph of Cost for 100,000 BTUs of HeatSay you could buy some electric heat for $1.00. A heat-pump with a 1-COP would give you the same heat at the same cost.

This is where it gets good!

  • 2-COP gives you 2 times the heat for a buck
  • 3-COP gives you 3 times the heat for a buck
  • 4-COP gives you 4 times the heat for a buck
  • 5-COP gives you 5 times the heat for a buck
