Heat pump limits?

Would a heat pump be able to get the house temperature to 50 degrees without the use of the built in heat elements if the outside temperature is 25 degrees? Thanks

If sized properly yes that is well within the capacity!

That is a somewhat strange question. Why would the house be at 50 degrees ?
What temperature are you trying to raise it from ?
Heat pumps have a very slow recovery rate.

I'm asking because I live in the north for 7 months & then south for 5. When we head south we turn our heat down to save heating bills.

So you are asking will a heat pump maintain a house at 50 degrees if 25 degrees outside ?
If this is a location that will be uninhabited..... you'd want electric reheat as a backup in case the heat pump failed.
