Well, under federal code 09423094792387489237489 you're only allowed
1.0006 heat sources per home. So, for seconday heat source you are
obliged to choose between a Channukah candle and a lapdog.
As to the heat pump, they tend to be electric. Though, they can use
propane for an auxiliary heat source. Fire places can burn wood,
propane, natural gas, or they can be electric.
Most places in the US, propane is cheaper than electric as a heat
source. Though, heat pumps are good.
I'd reccomend talking to several heating contractors in your area.
Since different parts of the country use different heaqing equipment.
