It's pretty difficult to properly calculate the comparison between line gas and a mini split because of the varying efficiency of the ASHPs with the weather. I'm relying on utility bills to inform me. In January my electric bill was almost $400! The gas bill was $16, for heating DHW. In February (nearly the same temperatures) my gas bill was $56 and my electric bill, not using the mini splits, was around $45, as usual.

You know you're an ecorenovator if anything worth insulating is worth superinsulating.
