The report reviews the state-of-the-art relative to development, capacity, and adequacy of the heat pump as a potential replacement for outmoded fossil-fueled heating and cooling systems in the residential and commercial sector. Projections are made of the rate at which heat pumps need to be manufactured and installed in the commercial and residential sectors as the projected service life of fossil-fuel equipment expires. The conclusion is reached that the heat pump is economical only as a total space comfort system. Based on January 1, 1976, fuel prices, the heat pump is about 25% more expensive to operate than comparable fossil-fueled heating systems. If the trend of increasing fuel prices continues, the heat pump will be more economical to operate than comparable fossil-fueled heating systems by 1980.
