You and Pandora seem to have well designed HVAC system and good experience with your heatpumps. Thanks for sharing your experience.
I do not understand why HP are not more popular in the US and why the common perception is that they are no good?
They're pretty popular below the Mason Dixon Line. Maybe the issue was people weren't getting properly designed systems installed, or not using them correctly / false expectations.
I have no complaints with mine either, but since I grew up out on the Great Plains, what really got us motivated were two months of $400 resistive heating months in a row - that's why we installed the propane furnace as backup.
