Is your home heated with natural gas?

If so do you think it is more expense to heat your home with natural gas or electric?  Here in Southern Ky. it is cheaper to have a home heated with electric than natural heat.  Just curious about other states.

  • We have natural gas. In our area it is more expensive to have electric heat.

  • I am in Virginia. We have natural gas and it is very expensive. But in the summer we cool with electric and it is very expensive. It is a vicious circle.

  • Heat is natural gas here... thumb of MI... some still use oil, and propane too both more
    expensive than gas, but the electric is higher even as a non heat in this area...
    so right now my gas bills average less per month that my electric...

  • I'm in PA & we have a boiler, which is electric start, but the water is heated with natural gas. The natural gas is cheaper than an all electric system would be.

  • My parents have natural gas, and supplement with electric heaters - their bill is really high, but they keep the furnace low as the electricity is cheaper. We heat with propane, and it's cheaper than electricity the last couple of years.

  • We have natural gas it is less expensive for us to turn the heat down to 60 and run electric heaters in the room we are in.
