Comparing the cost of a current gas gas furnace versus a current heat pump

I have tried to slowly modernize my aged house, but it’s hard. My parents moved into this arena in the 1973s, plus before that it was owned by an aged couple who had it from the time it was built in the 1950s. Needless to say, there are relics from the past in everything from the paint plus wallpaper to the aged powder room faucets plus fixtures. I was shocked when I l acquired that the oven in the dining room is original from when the current home was originally built. I’m not sure why my parents never replaced it, but I did right after I took up occupancy here. With my job income slowly increasing, I’ve been able to afford some much needed replaces in this arena, culminating in my decision to get a current oil furnace entirely. Since this is a northern region plus the people I was with and I had an exceptionally long Winter this year, I can’t go without a great oil furnace or gas furnace of some kind. There was a gas gas furnace here to begin with, but I started to wonder if I should consider an even better oil furnace this time around. I compared a current gas gas furnace to a current heat pump to see the difference in price. Surprisingly, some heat pumps cost about as much as a great gas gas furnace, but they don’t require HVAC duct love a gas gas furnace does. On top of that, a gas gas furnace at best has a 97% efficiency rating while a heat pump can get up to 300% efficiency. That was the final determining factor in my getting a heat pump to replace the aged gas gas furnace in the house.
