Electric heating- house in the country (can't do natural gas)
Our builder suggested an electric furnace rather than propane or oil. We would do a backup propane furnace. We are building out in the country with no access to natural gas supply. Since propane and oil are so ungodly expensive (and sometimes in shortage), would electric be a viable option these days?
The builder actually built his home (5000 square ft.) and is all electric. He said his electric bill averages about $600 per month. He said he insulates really well and the electric does a fine job and is more economical than the propane/oil options.
