Hello and no. If you have low hot water use, it would be a strike against using a heat pump. If you have very high electric rates, the same applies. If the filter on the heat pump is unlikely ever to get cleaned, or if the unit lives in a cold place, performance will drop off.

Heat pumps are best installed where the owner is just a bit technical, where a bit of cooling and dehumidification would be welcome, where any noise from the unit wouldn’t bother the people and where gas rates are high and electric rates are low.

We don’t like forgone conclusions. They get in the way of good troubleshooting 😉

Yours, Larry
