They're also pretty much maintained free, and don't have thermocouples. I
don't know about the rest of the country, but in downstate NY, the propane
companies hike their prices up wildly at the drop of a hat
Thanks for the link. I'm still definately not decided on the water heater
OR the heat backup option. This house is on an electric coop and the kwh
rate is about 25% higher than the surrounding area, BUT they do give a
seasonal rate 8 months out of the year if you register a heat pump with
them. I will for sure have the heat pump, since it's a no brainer. They
give a $600 rebate and the heat pump option (last time i did it) was $620.
But you never know where the price of LP is going either. <G>
