Sooooooo, my heat pump dies last month without telling me. Ran for the last COLD month in emergency heat. Nice bill. Heat pump dude told me that this is a good thing, my old heat pump was 32 years old and the new ones are more efficient. I laughed, I didn't believe him.
It is April, but still need heat. It was 50 in my house yesterday. But today I have heat. And holy cow, it is blowing HOT air. HOT air is coming out of the vents for the first time ever. HOT. I moved here 12 years ago from a radiator heated house that was almost too hot. I called a repair dude the first winter because I thought there was something wrong, only blew lukewarm air. Nope, just a heat pump.
Well, just to let people know, new heat pumps do work better. Almost makes me not miss the $$$ in my emergency fund.
