Your unit will get warm quicker in emergency mode, but it is much more economical to run in heat pump mode.
When in Heat pump mode, we are heating house a bit slower, but at an amp draw of about 20 amps or less. With the emergency heat we heat quicker, but draw anywhere from 44 to 84 amps depending on how many KW you have.
