    How much per kilowatt do you pay where you're at? When I lived on Long Island it was very expensive and I'm assuming you because you're an Eastern New York it's a hell of a lot colder. I have a friend of mine that moved from Long Island to Greene New York and it is nasty cold there in the winter time

    If I read that correctly it's only $0.04 a kilowatt that's real cheap that's cheaper than where I'm at but quite a bit and we have really cheap power I think we're paying about $0.08

    You're paying about half of what I'm paying here for electric. 5 cents a kilowatts dirt cheap. Electric furnace wouldn't cost that much to run there so I can see where heat pump would be all right when the power is that cheap

    There's places near me (canada is one) that uses the same hydro power and it costs less... it's all the government.

    Still, in your area, LP is likely very much more costly than is the equivalent electrical unit. Natural gas is probably cheaper if you have a supply of commercial gas wells (like we do here).

    You're right Natural Gas is the Preferred Choice here if it's available. On my street there is no gas. There's natural gas everywhere else around me but on my street there isn't any. There's a lot of oil being delivered on my street still. That's why I didn't go to gas I would have if it was available. Propane here if somebody uses it a dual fuel heat pump will be preferable. Most of the time a heat pump can heat well here without backup
