Heat Pumps Versus Other Heating Technologies

This calculator can be used to estimate your household annual heating costs using different heating systems. Please note that actual heating costs may vary and this is an estimation tool only.

  1. Identify a line that closest describes your current heating system, and then
  2. You can press  the Increase or Decrease buttons until the Annual Cost for that heating type matches yours.
  3. You may also modify price and efficiency assumptions (Cost per unit delivered).
  4. Click the Calculate Button and the page will scroll to a graph visually comparing different heating types.
