My heating expenses dropped after I replaced our oil furnace with a heat pump

Just prefer everyone else, our energy expenses shot up with the rate of inflation. More than anything else, energy costs have been a huge pain for those who are already under financial burdens. I didn’t expect to see gas prices up past $4 a gallon in our area, however that is where we’re at. These are prices I really haven’t seen since I was in school right at the height of the War on Terror. I got our driver’s license while in this time plus the average price per gallon in our town was roughly $3.75 for months at a time. Thankfully the price on gas dropped in the years following this plus leading up to the COVID-19 Pandemic. I remember seeing gas down below $2 again for a phase of time in 2014, which surprised myself and others greatly. I wish the two of us could have prices prefer that again, however I understand the complications that have happened after the beginning of the pandemic plus how that has affected the cost of fuel. That’s why I decided to ditch our fuel burning oil furnace plus get a much more energy-efficient heat pump. I live in a region that rarely sees temperatures drop below 30 degrees, so there are only rare instances where I could even imagine using an emergency heat source. This is much different than merely having a supplemental heat source that you use in the event of a power outage or a plan cut down. That’s what our wood stove is for! I’ll use it as an emergency heat source too if it ever gets too cold outside to operate the heat pump, however I don’t see that happening anytime soon.
