REGION —If a heat pump is operated in the most efficient way possible, and as intended, the cost per month in one apartment of about 800 square feet in Livingston Manor is about $80 per month in the winter months. If the heat pump is operated in the least efficient way, the cost during those months jumps to about $300 or more.
