Heat Pumps are typically not that efficient in colder temperatures. Here is a portion of our Heat pump article that explains this more:
If the temperature rarely dips below 40 degrees Fahrenheit, you can probably heat your home more affordably with a heat pump than a furnace. However, if the temperature is often colder, you should consider having a backup heat source. Many people choose a gas or oil furnace to serve this purpose -- both for reasons of cost and because a furnace can more easily maintain warm temperatures when the difference between the temperature outside and inside increases.
With that said based on our ratings Coleman is listed as the highest rank heat pump manufacturer overall. These rankings are based on at least 25 consumer reviews per manufacturer. See the link below for the complete list of rankings:
