    One more question: if the Greenspeed can get me down to single digits (or close), does that mean it does so just as effectively (quickly and comfortably) as a regular furnace? At that level, maybe...

    Good point. I am expecting to stay for 5-10 years. Also hopeful that the gas line will reach me in the next couple years.
  3. Thanks very much. If a heat pump can keep me...

    Thanks very much. If a heat pump can keep me warm more efficiently than a furnace to 20, it can run nearly all year long.
  4. Interesting suggestion, thanks. Assuming energy...

    Interesting suggestion, thanks. Assuming energy rates stay about the same, how cold can it get before it's no longer practical to use the heat pump? Any idea how much of a premium I'd expect to pay...

    I think it's about a 30% credit? But I think the up-front is more than double, no -- maybe a net after tax of $10,000+? Have to admit I haven't really looked into it carefully given the total cost.
  6. Thanks for the input; I think geothermal is...

    Thanks for the input; I think geothermal is beyond the budget. Am planning a heat pump and propane or oil furnace.
  7. I have looked at each source based on the per btu...

    I have looked at each source based on the per btu or equivalent cost, at least to the degree that you can isolate the numbers. Electric rates are all over the place but added fees per kwh seem so...
  8. Thank you. I am paying close to $0.15/kwh, which...

    Thank you. I am paying close to $0.15/kwh, which seems pretty costly, probably better to have oil or propane backup. Right now propane is about 35% cheaper than oil, though the average over the...
  9. "Oil, that is."

    "Oil, that is."

    Anyone out there who has strong feelings about sticking with iol, either Carrier Infinity or Honeywell Redlink t-stats?
  11. Thanks for the advice. Never gone back and forth...

    Thanks for the advice. Never gone back and forth so much over a decision like this -- too many variables. Neglected to mention that if I go propane, I have to put in concrete supports (at about...

    Thank you. I figured in the BTU diff, and oil seems a bit cheaper but not much.

    Does the 86% AFUE oil furnace work as well with their Infinity Heat Pump and Thermostat for controlling the system?...
  13. Thanks for both of your replies. Do you like the...

    Thanks for both of your replies. Do you like the Infinity system -- is it worth the premium to make these components work together smarter? Do you think the Infinity thermostat is better than a...
  14. Are complete systems just better for gas than oil these days?

    Replacing the oil furnace and A/C in my CT house. Weighing a propane furnace/heat pump setup vs. oil furnace/heat pump setup. I think it's a tough call on oil vs. propane:

    For oil:
    - Oil seems...
