When you turn your heat pump on, it cannot deliver enough heat to compensate for that large of a difference quickly enough. So it does what it was designed to do, it turns on “back up” heat. If you have electricity, this means a much larger bill. It is better to set a heat pump to the temperature you want and leave it. It may seem inefficient, but it actually assures your system is running at optimal efficiency—saving you money and keeping you comfortable throughout the day.
