I did the math, and in the long run, the LP would be the cheapest. Now,
aside from that, we are about ready to add another 3.5 ton heat pump to our
ever expanding casa here. IF they get the gas in time, that would make it
preferable to have the NG for the gas pack on the heat pump. But I'd still
just keep the LP for cooking. We don't do a LOT of cooking, but enough to
justify turning this range into a boat anchor if I had the choice. Electric
stoves suck big time.
I have a cabin seven miles east of Cedar City, Utah. It was made in 1987,
and electrifried in 1995. It had a propane fridge, and still has the
original propane lights. Propane stove and water heater, too. When the
electricity goes out, we're good to go except the satellite dish. Lights,
stove, hot water, wood stove. Don't know if I want a generator or not.
It's nice for things to be silent occasionally. Time to go up soon and see
if we can drive through the snow drifts and start using it. Come on,
Last house had natural gas. I grew up with gas appliances. Moved here and
had electric. Hated it so we went to propane. No noticeable difference
between the two. You can always convert when the time comes. Put in a
line for the gill while you are at it.
I like to move the grill around too much, and am drawing plans for a thirty
five foot tall deck, so would be taking it up there for cookouts. If you
are going to leave the grill in one place, yes, by all means, plumb it in.
Safer, easier, better. We have different areas, so mobility is a prime
Or multiple quick disconnects if there are only one or two places
where you're likely to move it (gas lines hidden underneath the deck
-- no tripping hazard and out of sight). You might also consider
installing a power outlet at the same time to operate a rotisserie or
BBQ lamp after dark.
nat gas alot cheeper to use than propane,they both cook the same . you
dont have to buy tanks of nat gas . if your just cooking with gas ,
propane may be cheeper than getting the line to and in your house.
