Hi,

I am planning a move to Connecticut. I'm looking to move into a place that costs 850 per month, plus the cost of heat. It has a propane heat / hot water system.

Does anybody out there use propane to heat your home and hot water? What is the monthly cost?

Thanks.

I just filled up today @ 2.88 per lb or gallon however they measure it. My house is very large however ( 5000 sq ft) so I go thru more than most. I will use about 150 gallons per month. I imagine an average size house could spend approx 100 - 200$ per month.

I used to live in an apartment with propane heat. If the place is old and poorly-insulated expect to pay more. If it is surrounded by other apartments or is well insulated, expect less. I think the $100-200/month is a good guess.

We use about 600 gallons a year for heat only in 2500 sqft. Just paid 2.59 last week.

It's more cost effective than electric or oil. Natural gas is best IMHO. As noted above it'll depend on how insulated the home is and how warm you like your space. There can be the added bonus of a gas stove which reduces your electric when using the oven.

Can anyone reccomend a good resource (other than random Google searches) to find propane dealers who will deliver to my my newly installed tank in lower Fairfield County? I own the tank and would like to call around to get the best price.
