Is the title of my post a paradox?
We bought a little 1940 tract home 5 months ago, and adore its war era charm.
The vintage GE stove/oven that came with the house needs repairs, and I don't much like cooking with electric anyway, so we're thinking of trading in or selling the stove we have now for a different vintage (gas) stove.
Question is, we are sensitive to environmental issues and energy efficiency (2 Prius household, enough said? so, can you tell me, are vintage stoves/ovens terribly energy inefficient?
I would guess that new models of ovens are much more efficient, in terms of insulation and such. Can you help inform our decision?
