Re: Anyone know the SEER rating of the AC unit?

Another reason to use resistance heat instead of a heat pump is to allow the A/C compressor to run for dehumidification in conjunction with the heater for defrosting.

well that a/c compressor will be running at the sime time as the resistance heater in order to keep a windshield clear.

that will be considerable draw and reduction in range during fall/ winter months when both heating and dehumidification are needed. seat heaters or no seat heaters you have to be able to see to drive safely
