Here in Florida heat pumps work great and will pay for themselves quickly. The downfall of a heat pump is that they need ''heat'' to make ''cool''.

This becomes a problem at lower air temps. When the temp drops into the 50's, which it will quite often in the northeast, you lose the efficiancy of the heat pump. It will have to run longer to produce enough heat to warm the water.

I would seek out others in your area that have a heat pump and inquire with them about thier experience.

And yes, cool air does come out of the top. If I could harness that I would be in great shape!
