Question: Whats the difference is between a 80% and a 98% furnace?
Answer: The higher the efficiency the more heat is exchanged from the heat exchanger so an 80% you get 80% of the heat from your system. A 98% uses 98% of the heat being exchanged. With that the flue temperatures are lower with the higher efficiency furnaces. Less waste and heat lost out the flue.
Question: What is a heat pump?
Answer: A heat pump is exactly what it says, it absorbs the heat from the outside atmosphere and releases it inside the building it is heating. Most heat pumps are designed to absorb heat down to a specific temperature. If that temperature goes lower, then a secondary heat source is required, either an electric or gas source air handler.
