This is my first post here. I bought a semi detached twin built in 1990. It gets cold in the house - particularly in the morning.
It has a electric forced air heat pump for ac and heat. The unit is the original one that came with the house.
The HVAC guy who we have said the unit works fine - but said we may opt to replace it in 2 or 3 years if it doesn't break before then.
I have insulated the house as best I can. I have the original windows and they have an option for a strom window to be placed inside - but it's tough to find strom window inserts. My question ( finally ) - is there anything I can do or buy that would help me get more out of my heat pump without raising it above 71 degrees ? I have kids so I am concerend about safety - is there any electric heaters or something I could use ? or nay other insualtion ideas ?
If anybody has thougths let me know. Thanks very much. ( sorry for the long question )
