I'm looking to purchase a home in the Indianapolis, IN area, and I didn't grow up with gas heat or stoves, so I strongly prefer all electric homes to gas. The problem is, most homes in the area are either all gas, or at the bare minimum, gas heat, but everything else electric.
My question is:
What choices besides ripping out all of the gas appliances and replacing with electric do I have? Is it feasible to shut off the gas service altogether and use space heaters in the more common areas?
I certainly have no desire to pay upwards of $400 a month for gas when I know i wouldn't pay anywhere over $120 for electric.
