Furnace vs heat pump?
The battle between FURNACE vs HEAT PUMP continues and let’s talk a little bit more about it – what should be taken into account, how to finally make the right decision
Do you own a house? Do you have a one-room apartment? Maybe a townhouse unit?
This is the main question you have to answer before buying a heating source, because if you install a heat pump in your double-storey house, then there is no point to wait for tropical heat in your bathroom, living room, kitchen and three other rooms. A parallel cannot be drawn between the heat pump and the furnace. Even if they both fall under the category of heaters. You need to rationally think about the size of your household and accordingly choose the heater that will actually heat your home.
A HEAT PUMP IS NOT A FURNACE AND A FURNACE IS NOT A HEAT PUMP
Before making a decision, you need to determine what you want. How about drinking tea in front of a warm fireplace on a cold winter day, reading a book while skin is pleasantly warm, because the heat of the furnace has done its job? Or are you just interested in keeping the room warm by the evening news episodes? Well, here again it is important to know WHAT YOU WANT!
WHAT IS YOUR PLAN B?
Let’s imagine you just got home from work. You open the door and feel how the heat pump has more or less warmed your two-room apartment. If the apartment is «more or less warm», then thoughts move in one direction only – hot coffee! You reach the kitchen, take your 250ml of coffee from your coffee machine and go to watch your TV. Your long working day is finally over! YESSS! It is your time! And oops, at this very moment, what the heat pump owner is most afraid of is happening. ELECTRICITY GOES OFF! And by chance it’s winter and you’re not the only one waiting for a repairman. What is your plan B?
CARE FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
There is much discussion today about saving the planet: how to be more eco-friendly, how to keep the smallest possible ecological footprint. If to compare heat pumps and furnace electricity, which could be renewable?

Wood burning is green renewable energy, that is the most eco-friendly. So, how does it feel? Want to be a world savior? Start with the right heating source!
