I wish I had NG available but that is the price payed for living out in the country. I hate my oil heat, went to fire it up a few days ago and the thing sputtered out some white smoke out the stack and quit. I already had service coming Friday for general inspection tune up, but it got cold fast this year and I wanted to get some heat in the house. We are in the middle of a renovation so we don't need the heat to live there, but I wanted to make sure nothing was gonna freeze.
I have been looking heavily into a pellet stove. Everyone who has them seems to rave about them.Mods-Griggs coil overs 4 corners, griggs caster camber kit, Koni shocks/struts, Griggs tubular k-member/tubular a-arms, 2x4 steel boxed framerails cut and welded into the length of the body, 4 point roll bar, Battle Boxes, Currie johnny joint rear upper control arms, griggs lower control arms, Kenny Brown rear shock tower brace, NA SVT shortrunner intake, IMRC deletes, BBK longtube headers and O/R H-pipe, SLP powerflo catback, FRPP aluminum driveshafts, Centerforce dual friction clutch, C&L cold air intake/K&N, pro 5.0 shifter, rear seat delete, stalker side skirts, boss shinoda wing, rear mounted battery moroso kit, chrome terminator wheels

I've got a 3000 square foot 2 story home that's heated by Propane. We have a 500 gallon in ground tank. Sometime around November last year we turned on the furnaces (2) and went through probably 1000 gallons of propane before turning off the heat in April.
I'm looking at replacing the furnaces with new 2 stage units. The ones I have are 13 years old and builder grade.
We kept our furnace at 72 through the winter.

1680 square ft house...electric heat pump with a gas fireplace (in the living room) up until last winter. This summer I replaced the POS unefficient gas fireplace with a pellet stove that is located in the unfinished basement. We'll see.06 F350 Powerstroke05 Ranger13 Explorer Sport (wife's)

Baseboard heat is notoriously inefficient. It's like trying to heat your house with an oven in each room.
That being said, I didn't know they made gas/oil baseboard heat? I've only seen electric.
I just bought my house 3 months ago, ( electric everything ) and have yet to go over $100 on my bill. The house was built in 2008, and from everything I can see the original owner built the house with top notch insulation from the ground up.
I keep it 72* year round in my house.
trust me i was told i looked like a man by an exboyfriend while i was still dating him, and i didnt even flinch and i can take it, its one of those things you learn to get overTis life. Well, at least your life. Not my life, I'm a winner. Excuse me while I go **** the prom queen.

Jake I have a 3500 sf home and heat with oil (forced hot air). Just spent close to $900 to fill my 275 gl oil tank here in ct. Hate it and it kills me to spend that much on heating. I also have a 1000 gl propane tank buried in the yard that we use for our whole house generator and pool heater as well as a gas fired fireplace with a thermostat and blower to regulate it. Propane was $1.81 a gl when I just filled it last. I will be converting our furnace/HWH over to Propane in the spring. As for now we try to heat the house with the FP and it works out great but the LR where it resides gets pretty damn warm. That's ok with the kids and the dog but drives me out lol. But the energy savings is fine with me. That thing heats up the entire house. We have a grand entrance and it goes right up there and enters all the upper rooms. cuts down enormously on our energy bills during the COLD months!'91 Black/Black Notch with '03 Terminator swap.

I am thinking geo-thermal might be my next move. House is plumbed for HVAC so with some changes it should work.

Not to mention, Maryland residents can participate in the Renewable Energy Credit market. Certified Geothermal equipment's BTU capacity is converted into kilowatts which is then converted in REC credits. These credits are traded on the market, divined reimbursement check are issued quarterly thus reducing your payback period to less than 4 years.

Sorry I didn't read all 3 pages if someone already mentioned these. My parent-in-laws have one of these and their gas heater barley turns on during the night. This heater takes care of there home in all rooms. Not huge on square footage but maybe if you bought 2? Saves them hundreds every winter. Thought I'd share.

Goodman forced air 95% plus efficiency natural gas unit. The best investment I have put in home. $350 plus heat bills per month prior to unit install.
Gas bills dropped to just under$ 200 per month after unit. Then nest thermostat dropped bills another $40-50 a month. Temp is set by nest to 68-70 degrees.

I have a cape cod house, roughly 1600 sq. ft. The original propane gas furnace is still in the house, it is about 20 years old. My propane tank is in the ground and I own it. I filled it up with about 240 gallons of propane back in July and I paid $1.249 a gallon. Best thing I ever did was to buy the tank because the company that leased it to me wanted to charge me $3.89 a gallon. I paid about $380 for the tank. I go through about 2 tank fulls when I run the heater. I can't complain!04 Black Cobra - A Couple Mods ~3900 miles

We open the windows in the winter here. Summer kicks our butts though.Morality is doing what is right, no matter what you are told. Religion is doing what you are told, no matter what is right.
