Yep, we hung out here in Florida for a couple of days before the cruise. Florida is a beautiful place, and there are fish everywhere..... a real fisherman's paradise. Miami metropolitan area is huge, and boy does it seem like there's a lot of big money here. [Linked Image]

Maybe too late, but I'd put in a heatpump condenser instead of a straight-cool (same size); only a few bucks more and you could heat dual-fuel for about half the cost of straight propane. Plus, the heatpump never 'runs out'.
New heatpumps are ++ efficient down to 20 degrees (way cheaper than propane). Below 20 propane kicks in. Makes 1 tank last 2+ years!
Only suggesting this because I did exactly this on a home we recently moved into.

I believe propane is the way to go. I've got a friend that just built a home and his propane bills monthly through Trenton propane his home is 4200 sqft. Last month his electric bill was just north of 30 bucks his propane Bill was just south of 60 bucks.


Unless you set that thermostat at 60 during the winter, youíre going to be in for a shock. We went propane heater and propane tankless water heater in our new house, 3300sq ft with spray foam insulation. We moved in just before December, had tank filled to 200 gallons, and had to refill it Janurary 1 with another 200 gallons. Just refilled it yesterday with 100 gallons. Thatís over $1000 for 4 months. My dad is on chemo right now and it makes him very sensitive to the cold, might be one reason we are using so much propane, I keep it at 68-70 and he keeps it around 74.

Also, the water heater has a recirculator feature to provide faster hot water, this uses constant propane, and it can be turned off but will take a few more seconds to get hot water.

I have always has gas heat, always been natural ga though. My in-laws have electric heat and they averaged $250 a month over the past 4 months and were on brand new units in a 2400 sq ft home.




Update on my utility bills.many were concerned about.

I filled up my propane tank in August or September can't recall for sure spent around 550 when I did. It appears it will last a full year. My electric bill is set up through a tiered set up. Use under x kwh it's this amount, steps up. Our electric bill was 158 for 4 months then 42 for 8 months.

Sure hope I don't lose the farm.


Iím guessing you have a 250 tank? We were able to keep it to 300 gallons for the winter and 100 for the rest of the year, this year.

I agree with the skids, but if you could get a remote that would move it, I would then prefer the legs because I think it would be need to fly it around the lease spraying corn.

We left Forney in the middle of that storm. When we reached Terrell, we were in the middle of a tornado warning with a rotation moving NE, same direction we were headed. We pushed on. We drove through the hardest rain I have ever seen, all the way to Mineola. We saw roofs blown off, large tree limbs blowing across the road right in front of us, large old oak tree get hit by lightning, itís was a fun drive.

A few years ago I bought a handful of what I thought were balsa wood, turned out to be foam. Flew about the same, but just were not the real thing, so it was off to Hobby Lobby for balsa wood so I could make "real" airplanes for the grandkids. On the parachute man, at that time we lived on Base in NCO quarters, a 4 story apartment complex,, The kids would play on the roof, 4 floors is a good drop for a parachutist. One day a handful of us made paper airplanes and threw them off the building. Somebody forgot to tell us that the Base Commander was doing a housing inspection that day. We were on the top of the building when a dozen Airmen were cleaning up our mess. The roof top playing came to a halt. TG&Y and Clarks were in most areas, but even small towns had the 5 and Dime stores.
