I'm wondering if you would be further ahead with an electric hot water tank for summer.

electric h/w tank beats gas and hands DOWN beat oil at this point :mad: I hate saying that but its true... I fear at some point builders are going to start throwing elec. baseboard into houses like they did in the late 70's early 80's :lol:

I picked up a solar thermal 30 tuber with 40 gall water tank on Ebay for $600 (see village gone green on youtube). This will be my third year of heating summer DHW with this unit for washing horses and now the house. Simple to plumb and provided you are not fussy about water temp to within a few degrees it saved me a ton. The morning excitement of is the shower going to be luke warm or scald the skin off me is enthralling. Now I have three working. Sadly, around here, it's not a winter option whatever Obummer and Chu tells you, April to Nov only. I am looking in the NY plumbing code for where garden water hoses are permitted :sick: but as it's temporary who cares (insert ascerbic sting comment here)....... but it worx and is cheap.

No more HO, read my lips.... and soon no more propane

My electric hot water tank runs $50-$60 per month for 2 adults and 2 kids. Its funny you bring up electric baseboard :lol: .. When I bought this house almost 20 years ago it was completely run with 220v baseboard electric heat. The previous owners installed a wood pellet stove a couple years before I bought it since it was at that point that electric price starting getting too high. When I bought the house I refused to use the electric baseboard and burned 4 tons of wood pellets every winter instead. We weren't very warm though.. Its only a 30,000 BTU appliance heating a two story 3 bedroom house (1500 square ft at the time). Then I installed the propane furnace about 10 years ago and was thrilled till THAT went thru the ceiling. Which brings me to my adventures with coal 8-)
