On mild temperature heating days, the heat pump handles all heating needs. When the outdoor temperature reaches the balance point of the home, that is, when the heat loss is equal to the heat-pump heating capacity, the two-stage indoor thermostat activates the furnace (a secondary heat source, in most cases electric heating elements). As soon […]
