Fuel consumption

Hi folks
We just had propane fired central heat installed in our 1980's home and I was concerned about our new heating bills
Our house is approx 2200 SF
Would you mind sharing your Annual heating costs with me for a similar sized home in Northern New England

Thank you.

Depends on style/stories/type of construction/insulation/windows etc etc so it is not easy to compare 2 homes accurately. What size of furnace did they put in and type. Did they do a heat loss calc to size it properly. May want to do it yourself DIY.
