Electric vs Gas Range

Looking to replace my aging Electric stove for a Gas Range because it's long overdue, and also because of the 28% rate hike coming next year from BC Hydro.

Not sure if replacing my aging stove would have any real cost-savings in the long-term. I tried the BC Hydro appliance calculator, and plugged in some numbers. Even with the rate hike in mind, the cost of running a gas stove still cost significantly more than an electric stove. Not sure if that's true or not, as I've never owned a gas range.

For those who have converted from Electric to Natural gas, what are your experiences with cost?

Yes I know Gas is way better than Electric.

It also depends on your dwelling.. Some houses will need some replumbling for the gas line to go into the kitchen.. especially if it was built with electric stove in mine.

I think the hike is actually 28% over 5 years.. not in one year.

Unless you are running a commercial kitchen that has the stove on 16 hours a day.. just doing it by cost difference won't sway you to switch one or the other.

If you like gas, just switch to gas.
