Some of the homes on my "short list" use propane instead of natural gas for heating. In your opinon, is there a reliable propane supplier in Oldham and do you think that propane affects the value of a home? I prefer natural gas, but that's basically because the only thing I know about propane is from watching "King of the Hill" reruns. Any comments greatly appreciated, especially if you ever used propane. Thanks in advance!

I am not certain to the reliability, but there are several suppliers of propane. The issue of value is another story, however. If a home is well insulated and has modern efficient HVAC & applicances, the resale value won't hurt too much. The absolute best value for larger homes right now is geo-thermal. Although important, it's the package, not the fuel that is the issue.

Not trying to hijack the thread, just a quick question. What is meant by geothermal? I am more familiar with electric heat systems, natural gas, propane, oil, and radiant heat systems in the floor, but I'm stumped when it comes to what geothermal is. Thanks.

geothermal uses a method where holes are deeply drilled into the earth then fluid is pumped through pipes using the earth as a heat exchanger. In the summer the earth is much cooler and provides aid in air conditioning, and then in winter it aids in heating. Geothermal Heat Pump Consortium, Inc. (broken link)
