Heating with All-Electric Hot-Water Baseboards
Hello, I am helping my parents electrify their house and they currently heat solely with hot water baseboards heated with an oil burning furnace. They are looking to install solar and want to stop burning fossil fuels, and have heard about Heat Pumps for water heating. Do these reach temperatures high enough to provide heat for a house in Maine? The bones of their house wouldn’t allow for ductwork, so they probably will be keeping the baseboard system. If the heat pump alone isn’t enough, are there systems which allow for a combination of heat pump and electric resistance to reach high temperatures for heating?
