Here's the thing. We have a 3300sqft house. We live upstairs most of the time where the big (28x32') family room is. Bedrooms are upstairs as well. When we bought our house last Spring, there was a VC LP fireplace in the great room. I've always loved wood and my wife and I decided to get a woodstove put in as well. The backup heat source is baseboard hotwater (oil burner). The woodstove will be the primary heatsource this winter upstairs. The downstairs only has baseboard heat and we generally sit down there for breakfast/dinner and prepare food in the kitchen. I have the baseboard heat set to 62F an we never touch it, although it kicks on quite a bit given the size house and it's not even that cold yet. I hate bb heat though. Seems so inefficient and almost artificially warm. My thought was to maybe put in a small DV gas stove downstairs. I have seen quite a few used LP stoves online for under $1K, but not sure on the install cost of such a stove. Also, I would have to get another 100G LP tank installed outside, which is not a problem. I figured if I put the gas stove on a thermostat, I would have good control over the downstairs heat and it would be more comfortable. My only thought is the price of LP in my area. I called yesterday and the cost is $2.90/g, while our last oil fill up was around $2.29/g. I am not trying to calculate everything down to the penny, but rather trying to justify spending the money for such an install. I ask myself "do I need it"? and the answer is "no", but it would be nice to have. More of a quality of life decision. The other thing pushing me towards doing it is the fact we will eventually upgrade to a gas cook stove, which is currently electric. My wife prefers gas and we figured once we went LP, we could run a line from the new LP tank to the stove. So after this little ramble, I guess I am just looking for feedback/suggestions to help steer my decision.
