And your still here...

It took you longer to write that than it would take the average person to read the original post - sounds like your the one that has no life...

"A bunch of people"... bro there are like 5 individuals total that responded to this (you don't even count), and 2 of them didn't mention going with NG...

And next your going to tell me you have a "bunch of experience" with this stuff? lol

Maybe your just jealous that you either can't create or comprehend a simple financial analysis like I originally created above...

Please, keep the manipulative replies coming - I am finding them entertaining at this point lol
Holy crap dude! I'm surprised you fit through doorways with that head of yours. Not sure what your problem is but all the info you need is in your original post. You come here to a forum where people are taking time out of their busy schedule to help others when they don't have to. You ask a ridiculous question, have blatant confirmation bias, get offended by people trying to answer the ridiculous question, and then start yelling at people about how you don't like their opinions and you know better than the professionals. I'll even bet that the reason you are here is because you've asked this same question to people and contractors around you and nobody wants to help because of your rude attitude towards others. Get a grip, and calm down, or you can leave cause you won't get results this way.

Overall your math is good and the rational is good.

Other things to take in to consideration are maintenance for any of the options over the next decade or three. Not just the cost but availability of parts and competent service people for whatever equipment you end up going with.

As much as I like high efficiency and lower operating costs, I also like simplicity at the expense of efficiency. If a more efficient option will pay for itself in 5 to 10 years I will usually go for it. I also place value to equipment that I can troubleshoot and repair myself.

If you go all electric I would think PV and battery backup would be consideration as well. Even if you go a heat pump route (air or ground).

NG has an appeal, especially if power outages are common and a back generator are in the budget.

Pay close attention to air sealing and heat recovery.
