But what North Carolinians like the most is the comfortable consistent heat that’s delivered. Propane heaters produce much higher indoor air temperatures than their electric counterparts, guaranteeing that you will keep your home toasty warm even during the most frigid winters.
An electric heat pump works by capturing heat from the outside air and transferring it into your home. When it’s really cold, there isn’t enough heat energy out there for your heat pump to keep you comfortable. The house just never seems to warm up. If temperatures drop to the single digits, folks complain that they can’t get their home above 62 degrees.
Many folks end up using all sorts of electric space heaters, which are the most expensive way to generate heat. They may also rely on backup electric strips, which are also expensive and often emit a burnt odor; this is caused by dust and other residue that has built up around the strips.
