**Heat Pumps** will raise your **electricity** bill â€“ but lower your costs for other **heating** fuels. To get the same amount of **heat**, 1 million BTU, from a **heat pump** with the current standard **electric** rate of 14.5 cents per kilowatt hour, it would cost you $14.71.

Simply so, What would cause a heat pump to trip the breaker?

A bad capacitor **can cause heat pump breaker trips**. Loose electrical connections – this **can** include connections to the **heat pump** itself or even a loose **breaker**. Loose connections **cause** a higher than normal power draw. Short cycling – Short cycling of a compressor **can cause heat pump breaker trips**.
