Default Gas Home or All-Electric?

My wife and I have visited The Villages this past February, coming again this June and and again Feb (2020) and are planning to move there sometime in Summer of 2020. My wife is totally hooked on gas stoves and clothes dryer and I prefer a gas furnace. We both have lived in a total electric home in the past and didn't like it.

How many of you have gas service in your homes and how do you like it?

Thanks in advance.

We moved to an area which is all-electric. Other than occasionally missing a gas cooktop, it's not a big deal either way.

And don't worry about a gas furnace here

Homes in The Villages do not have a furnace. You have A/C which doubles as a heat pump. Its electric. Some areas have gas for other appliances.

Gas, love it. Have had both, prefer gas for cooking. During the power outage last Sunday I was able to cook with my gas stove!

We have gas for the stove and dryer and if you are planning on buying south of 44 I believe all of the villages down here have it. You really don't need it for heating as you will seldom use your furnace and all of the spec homes have electric heat. You can also buy a natural gas grill and won't have to mess with propane tanks. Gas was definitely one of the selling features when we purchased our home in Fenney.'

My home has a gas furnace, gas stove, gas dryer and gas water heater, and AC is electric!
Very economical to operate, since gas is relatively inexpensive in TV.
We had some very cold mornings this past January and February,
and I really appreciated the warmth provided by the gas furnace.
