AbstractThis paper outlines the operational characteristics of various residential heat pumps and compares the costs of owning and operating such equipment with conventional furnaces. The comparison is made for nine Canadian cities and for a range of heating energy demands. The data presented will allow the consumer to select a heating system, for retrofit or replacement of an existing system or for new construction, on the basis of life-cycle cost.
