As a homeowner who strives for efficiency I have been grappling with these issues whenever we face a replacement. I have never been able to frame the issues so succinctly as in that blog.
For example, a few years ago we researched mini-splits to heat our home (our decades old boiler was at the end of its useful life). At that time, the mini split technology was not advanced enough to be a single heat solution in Maine (that has since changed). Because of that limitation, we elected to switch from oil heat to a wood pellet-based boiler. I don't regret that decision, but I would probably reach a different conclusion, were I facing that decision again today.
We have gone all in with electricity otherwise-- we are part of a community solar farm (as I mentioned in a previous blog post, our home is oriented badly for rooftop solar). Our stove is induction (which Bert loves) and our water heater is an air-source heat pump. Our cars are still gas (mine is a hybrid), but I expect we will buy electric when they need to be replaced (I don't see the point of getting rid of a paid-for and perfectly useful car just to buy an electric one).
So we heat with pellets (we use about 2 tons/year on average) and support the Maine forest products industry and generate excess electricity for a few years before we get an electric car. I can accept that. If you are replacing your boiler or building a new home, I would strongly encourage you to consider a mini split.
