Hello! Thanks for your time reading this. I just moved into my new place and I can’t get my unit to run heat. The landlord said that the unit should only be electric but I’m not quite sure about that. I’m curious if it needs gas to run considering the fact that it has gas lines attached to the outdoor unit. So in short does this unit require gas for heat or is it solely electric?

Thank you again

It’s a heat pump unit. It’s a coil for AC in the summer which removes heat from your home and expels it outside using Freon as the truck. In the winter it reverses the Freon cycle therefore bringing heat from outside ( how when it’s cold out?) you ask, using the Freon as the truck. With newer units you can still have 100% efficient heating when it’s -5 degrees F outside.
