Electric Heaters are Super Expensive
Take a good look at energy stars to compare efficiency with similar products. The energy website provides tables to show the cost of running electric heater according to wattage.
Bigger Heat Pump Means Better Heat
Set It High And It Will Heat Up Faster
Running Your Heat Pump Low All The Time Is Cheaper
Closing Off Vents Will Lower Your Heating Costs
Closing off multiple ducts can throw your heat pump out of balance, as the machine is no longer ‘breathing’ or moving the air around your home as it was designed to.
It’s Cheaper To Dry Washing On A Clothes Horse Inside
However, if you were running your heat pump anyway and you were using the clothes horse instead of running your dryer, there may be a small benefit. Otherwise, work out when power is the cheapest and use the dryer on off-peak hours. Even if it’s not a sunny day, you can still leave your washing outside.
