The Latest Hybrid

I ran across this last week. Someone had taken an old gas furnace shell and installed electric heat strips for the "new heat pump" system they advertised. The shell was 1990, the outside unit was 2004 and the inside coil was 1999. There were enough things wrong with this setup that I got writer's cramp.
