Those with store fronts, are any of your shops total electric? I'm looking to lease a brand new spot and the darn thing is total electric and I'm not really interested in changing any of the systems since everything is brand new a/c, furnace, and tankless water heater. all electric including my deluxe ovens, mixers and other stuff.

Also, how many tons of a/c does your space have for those with small spaces under 1400sf and by appointment?

It isn't always bad to use all electric. That is what is in the kitchen I rent, but when I do get my storefront finally built, I already own an electric convection oven (that I love) and will stay all electric. I use to swear by gas, and I do prefer gas when cooking, but I love my electric conv. oven...can't wait to get to use it again! My cakes rise higher and bake more evenly in it!

I'm all electric as well. I'm still in the construction process, but it's cheaper and the risk is lower with electric versus having gas.

Cheaper as in the installation/code requirements or electric bill? The later is what I was questioning. Really don't want to see anything close to a $800 electric bill.

Is this in your home or store front?If you don't mind me asking, how much does the electric cost. I know the the rates differ by area. I'm just trying to get a general idea of what to look forward too.
