    In the northeast that'll cost you a bundle.
    Avg temps around 20 lately. With a cold spell avg. temps around zero.
    Its good if you are a millionaire environmentalist.
    But we still have all those spent fuel rods from our nulear reactor in Seabrook N.H. and emmisions from nat gas plant in Newington N.H.
    I've got an idea have everyone spend a thousand a month on electric heat and have the govt. supplement them with your tax dollars. And have the govt. pay for another nuclear plant. You won't mind that do you? It'll only cost you as much as you have. All of it.
    LOL

    Currently I'm heating my house with electric.

    Its alittle cheaper then my oil at the moment.

    By next winter electric will catch up with oil and gas, and I'll switch back to oil.

    First oil delivery was at 2.699 per gal.

    Current oil, 2.549 per gallion.

    Electric, .1025 per kwh.

    Using elec baseboard, 100% eff, compared to oil, at 80% combustion eff, and a 20% duct inefficenty, my electric is cheaper.

    As to how much elec will be next winter, that I won't know for awhile yet.

    These conditions are for my house and duct system, not for everyones.

    At those rates, heat pump should be used.

    Where you live oil heat would be a joke. Where I live electric heat would be a joke.

    Heat pump can be used nearly anywhere
    south of latitude 48'.

    How does one obtain oil at < $1 per Therm?
