Dual Fuel COP Balance point calculator
Natual Gas cost per therm:
Propane cost per gal:
Oil cost per gal:
Electricity cost per kw:
Furnace efficiency rating:
The COP balance point is where the cost per BTU running the heat pump is the same as the cost per BTU running the furnace.
Match the COP balance point with the heat pump specifications corresponding COP temperature & that is the temperature where the heat pump is no longer economical compared to the fossil fuel system. This is not to be confused with the actual balance point of the heat pump for the structure. You do not want to set the cut out temperature lower than the actual balance point of the heat pump for the structure.
