Spending time in an area that's probably close to the same climate as the Pensacola area. I've been going through a tank in about a month, maybe a little less during the really cold spells. I like it warm, have not been using the heat pumps at all (mine are noisy and are on the next warranty service trip), and have been using the floor heat and only turning the furnace on when the nights get really cold. Most days I turn the gas off and use only the electric AquaHot to maintain temps but I turn the gas on before showering or turning on the furnace. I do like long, hot showers but I'm also batchin' it currently - DH is working from the stik 'n brik home. Not sure I could make three weeks if I was boondocking during one of those cold spells. Cooking and hot water isn't a problem but kicking in the furnance and/or floor heat can really drop the tank quickly.
