OK, I would like to take an informal survey. We have natural gas heat and of course, our bills are skyrocketing this winter. The power company is suggesting a High-efficiency heat pump would save oodles on our heating bills. Is this really true or are they just taking advantage of the current situation to hype their product?

If I were to consider replacing my current heating system, what would be the best choice? I just got the gas bill for the November/December and it was $221 compared to $121 this time last year. ALTHOUGH, in the last year we have installed programmable digital thermostats and made an effort to caulk/insulate more than ever before.

Advice?
