I'm looking for a new place to rent, and today I saw a nice place that had electric baseboard heating. I know nothing at all about electric heat... I've always had oil heat. Tell me what you know. Is it too expensive? or with the oil prices being what they are right now, would the electric be about the same or better? Also, is it true that you cannot put any kind of furniture near the electric baseboard heat? If so, what do you with beds, dressers, china cabinets? I'm up in New England in CT... so I will be heating all winter long.
