How good do electric heat pumps work? Are they more efficient than electric baseboard heating. I am too scared to see the bills with my electric baseboards, so i heat with a pellet stove and woodburner which don't always do the job in my 2500 sq. ft. house

I have had 3 heatpumps and would not have another on a forced air system. They always feel drafty and run several times longer than a standard gas, oil or electric. They also have a shorter life span as they run summer and winter for these longer periods.

Pellet stove? Boy did I hate the one I had! Couldn't depend on it staying lit. It was real noisy too!
