Wish I had seen these comments 5 years ago when we had a new 2800 sq. ft. house built in SE Pennsylvania and made the mistake of installing propane heat. The house is dual zoned and we normally keep the upstairs at 60 and downstairs at 65 with setback thermostats at night and when we’re not home during the day. I spend a minimum of $3,500 per winter (Nov – Mar) for a house with 2×6 walls and extra insulation in walls and ceilings. I also made the mistake of leasing the propane tank from a propane dealer so I cannot purchase propane from anyone else. I’m already looking at alternative heating systems so I can get rid of propane heat. STAY AWAY FROM PROPANE!
