Our house is currently for sale. As soon as it sells we will be building a new one in the country, in south central Texas. Our current heat is electric. It's horrible. We pay $450-$500 a month and keep the thermostats at 63. It's always cold, but what do you expect for that kind of money. So, the options we are looking at are electric heat pump and/or LP. There are some hybrid systems out there that use both. LP is expensive now days so I'm not sure that's good to totally rely on. All the builders I've talked to say solar and wind just aren't cost effective yet. Sure would be nice to coral some of that wind but systems are really expensive. Anyone have any experience with the new technologies and heat systems?
