My Trane AC unit is 13 years old and is close to its life end. My oil furnace is 23 years old and has served as a backup 9 months out of the year to an outdoor wood burner. I have had the wood burner for 7 years and more than paid for itself. I have to give up the wood burner because I cannot cut and split wood anymore due to my shoulder surgery. I can keep running the oil burner and AC system until failure or I can double my wood cost by purchasing split wood.I was thinking about purchasing a Bryant Evolution Extreme heat pump. This would replace both the furnace and AC systems and the operating cost would be less than running each unit (AC & furnace) separate. I know I have a hybrid option with the heat pump and that is something i will consider. The Bryant Evolution Extreme heats efficiently down to 17F. I just want to get a few other opinions on heat pumps. I live in northeaster PA so it does get cold. Most of our winter temperature are in the 20 to 30F range.
