That is a heat pump. By far the most common way to heat electrically is with radiant baseboard units.

But that method is very expensive also. It only makes sense in more southern parts of the USA where heat is not used very much.

And yes, it is not fully "clean" either. Trace that electrical power back to the source, and you will mostly find coal being burned to create it.

Do you remember a year ago, when our furnace stopped working after 21 years? Eek! James T. Kirk© 64 January 12, 2019 07:06AM

Yeah but what watch was the repairman wearing? Laughing Seriously I'm glad it ended well. It's scary when the scent of gas is in the air. (n/t) Dave P 58 January 11, 2019 07:30PM
Based on the bill, it could not have been anything less than a Grand Seiko SpringDrive. Laughing (n/t) BF Hammer 56 January 11, 2019 07:42PM
Yikes, glad it worked out. Makes me feel better I have old fashioned oil/steam heat. Cheers! (n/t) Robmks 95 January 09, 2019 07:23PM
That's a very northeastern part of the country way of doing things. Natural gas and propane rules the middle of the country. Smile (n/t) BF Hammer 91 January 09, 2019 07:49PM
Glad nothing worse happened. And now you're nice and warm. And safe! Smile (n/t) Zeb 62 January 09, 2019 06:52PM
Warm, yes. Nice? Debateable. Poorer? Definitely! Laughing (n/t) BF Hammer 94 January 09, 2019 07:45PM
Glad you didn't have an explosion or frozen pipes. You're right, even if you had a pro do the thermocouple, you still... Mike D 95 January 09, 2019 06:32PM
I don't fear electricity either...if I have personally disconnected the power. Wink BF Hammer 92 January 09, 2019 07:43PM
Good point - if I had formal education, I'd probably be cool with it. (n/t) Mike D 92 January 09, 2019 08:44PM
