    The variable rates part is a good point. I looked over the billing again and both have hidden costs not directly mentioned in their "rates". Both have a delivery charge, but the electricity one is...

    I assume I enter the efficiency of the heat pump for a given temperature to compare. In any case, it just verifies my calculations were correct. For an 80% gas furnace with my Seer 14 heat pump...
