Re: Countdown to the ban on incandescent
Natural gas is almost always cheaper these days. Most electric is made from this source, and nuclear is close behind. Coal is on the way out. We take that energy and convert it electricity and sell it to you. I'm not just basing this on working for an electric company, I pay less today to heat my house with gas fired hot water baseboard than I did a condo over 30 years ago with baseboard electric resistant heating and this house is twice as large. Yes, it's just as cold here. In the deep south, where do don't need heat often, it may make sense since the installation coasts are low. Is there anyone out there above the Mason Dixon line that wishes they had baseboard electric resistance heat, who actually has another system that works? It's Ok for spot heating, but I can't see using it for an entire house.
