Propane furnace - any experience?

We are considering bidding on a house that is just awesome, but it has a propane furnace. Does anyone have a propane furnace or experience with one? I know that insulation, layout, and climate a have a lot to do with it, but have absolutely NO clue on this.

There is an in-ground 500 gallon tank. The range, fireplace, and instant hot water are all propane too, which is great.

I'm really concerned that one little cold snap could eat through $1000 in propane in a month. It doesn't get very cold for very long here in Texas, so I think a heat pump could do the job just fine. The house was build in 2006 and I'm kind of baffled why they put a propane furnace in. Have propane prices jumped up that much recently? Right now it's about $2.20/gallon, but I'm sure they jack up the price in winter.

I WILL be asking for a utility estimate, but I'd like CP's opinion as well.

Understandable. I hate Benbrook cops so I would never live there. They're dicks. I had one pull me over in Fort Worth one time.

Aledo and Azle aren't bad. I'm just not a big fan of the subdivision/development type of neighborhoods (don't like that all the houses look pretty similar).

Bah you should rip out the propane system and install a methane system. That way if you run out during the winter all you need to do is eat some beans!
