I forgot about those gas lines in the attic. I think there is a fix for that now. They were to code at the time, but maybe not now. So maybe the gas homes south of 44 have a different configuration. Not sure.

This may be a silly question but why are gas lines dangerous in the attic during a thunder storm? I never gave them a thought during thunder storms.

Induction is the best alternative to gas in my opinion. Way cheaper after you buy the range as there is no wasted energy (heat) and it's way safer. If you're not sure, buy a portable induction burner, they use them in food prep at stores like Sams. They cost under $100 and are fun to use although they tend to be noisy with a built in fan. Our KitchenAid range is super quiet. I keep the portable for those times I might need a 5th burner or to place by my grill on the Lanai for extra stuff. Induction is very popular in Europe where energy costs are so hi and there is no gas.

I know induction ranges are reportedly terrific but I was wondering how long you have had yours?

What I have read is that as great as they are, induction ranges are prone to repair issues. I was also told it was a good idea to buy a service contract because of the possibility of problems.

Who is the manufacturer of your range? Have you had any problems with yours?

We have lightning rods on our house because of this.

Have had induction for 10 yrs here in The Villages and 12 yrs prior in TX. When remodeling in TX did a lot of research on keeping gas or going with induction. Induction won hands down. More efficient than gas, more control than gas and a thousand times easier to clean up. We have had no issues. Also went with convection oven and love the options it provides. We very rarely eat out and the cooktop and stove get a work out. Cookware not that big a problem.
Both appliances are GE.
