We purchased our present home in December of 2006. The only source of heat available to us (so we thought) was propane gas. It didn't take very long to figure out that we were going to go broke trying to heat our 3,800 sq/ft home with propane so in December of 2007 we installed a Mt. Vernon AE Insert. This stove had every imaginable problem that the early Mt.Vernon's encountered. Although our dealer was fantastic even he got to the point he didn't want to see us anymore and pulled the stove in 2010 and replaced it with a brand new Mt. Vernon AE. The new stove has been fantastic in fact the only issue to date has been an igniter going bad and that was even under warranty! Here is my dilemma. When the cable company was digging in the front of the house a couple of years back I noticed that they had put out some yellow flags as markers. Not certain if this is the same everywhere but yellow flags in these parts mean Natural Gas! I called my local utility and found out that NG was in fact in front of my house and had been there since another sub-division went in years ago. Needless to say we had the NG run to our home and never needed to deal with the propane company again however this is where the problem lies. The price of NG is so low that it really makes no sense at all to run the stove. I still run it but I know it is actually costing me more to do so. So here is the question: Do I pull the stove and re-install a gas insert or just keep the stove in the event that NG goes up in price? I really don't think NG is going up anytime soon and I am a bit concerned that the stove is going to start costing me for replacement parts and maintenance items. So what would you do?
