    egads I would! I'd crap out reinforced concrete bricks if my electricity bill was anywhere near that amount, and I have 2 tanks that's about 250g worth of water.

    How the heck did you hit Tier III? You run the AC/heater year round?

    AC is on in summer when the wife is home. If it's 70 outside, she gets hot. She also like it bright so when she is home (day or night), the lights are on (even the room that she isn't in). 3 refrigerators and 1 freezer help too. ::)

    I have to heat and cool my 2500SQ home too so its not just the tank. Also you are in SF and the temp there tend to be nice and cool in the summer, cool in the winter but doesn't get freezing cold so you don't have to use heat as much.
