Have you explored the propane option? That price you were quoted is just
rediculous. As for electric, it's just a matter of setting it there and
hooking up a wire. You'll need a spare 30A spot in your panel to run it.
I'd suggest to have the oil fired boiler put in. You can always use plug in
space heaters if the electricity is cheaper.
Oil, if memory serves, about 140,000 BTU per galon. A 1500 watt space heater
puts out 5200 BTU for that 1500 watts. Hope that gives you some numbers to
What's the rate for KWH where you are? Price of a galon of home heat oil?
