Hi Im looking into buying a two family house in Boston. My first property! I love the house, perfect location. of course theres always a couple problems. the house has baseboard electric heating in both floors. from my understanding this is the most expensive form of heating. It looks like there was previously a oil furnace but the house has been stripped of all components including radiators,pipes and furnace.

Is electrics baseboard heating going to take all my money?
Should i change the heating back to oil or gas? How much would it cost? Any programs from the state the help with cost?
Or should i just move on to another property?

Help need Please

Electric heat can be costly under certain circumstances; have the windows been updated to
todays standards? Are the walls, floors and ceiling insulated? Hopefully the unit has 8' or
lower ceilings.
Call National Grid for available heating conversion programs.
