What are the disadvantages of heat pumps?

Heat pumps provide both heating and cooling, and they cost about the same as a new furnace combined with a new central air-conditioning system. However, a heat pump costs significantly more than a gas or propane furnace. If your home has a natural gas furnace or boiler and is comfortable in the summer without air conditioning, then a heat pump will not make economic sense for you.
