Heating, Air Conditioning, Fridge, HVAC/Propane to Electric


We are looking at a house to purchase that has propane heat and AC. We'd like to convert from propane to electric. Would it be possible to replace the AC unit with a heat pump? What other options are there?

Hi Rachel, Yes you can replace the AC with a heat pump. I think that's a smart move. One other option would be to leave the propane as your backup heat. I would avoid the electric heat strips if you can. You won't like your electric bill when those thing's kick on.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

I can answer questions on gas or electric furnaces, ac units and heat pumps. I don't work on boilers,chillers,or home appliances.


I have been in the HVAC trade for over 35 years. For the past 15 years I have owned my own business. I am semi-retired so I can answer questions in a timely manner.

I attended trade school for 5 years on weekends and evenings. This was very hard to do, but well worth it!
