I am new here and to owning a mobilehome. My mobile is a 1970 and has a older heater in the hall way. It is a Colman Evcon model EB15B and there is vents that go into each room. I used it only briefly for a 1/2hr here and there when we first moved in a few months back and the electric bill scared me! Sooo I need to go to some other source of heat. Can't have a woodstove here or I would do that. My question is: it is better as far as monthly bills are concerned to go with a heat pump, a replacement furnace in the same spot that my Evcon is sitting or if anyone else has any suggestions of something else that would be great too.
I could go with gas but the mobile does not have gas lines. I did think about going with the ProCom ventless gas heater, (they look nice) but a person would have to come out and run a gas line as this mobilehome is only set up for electric.
I am just so new to all this and used wood for my only source of heat for 20 years so I really don't know what direction to take as cost of electric is so high for heat. My mobilehome is small and I am working on getting it better insulated.
Thanks a bunch
