Should I use gas or electric in my Monolithic Dome?
We encourage our customers to stay away from using gas in a Monolithic Dome — either propane or natural. Domes are very tight. Any leakage from gas appliances can accumulate in the dome which can produce health problems.
If you insist on using gas, we suggest putting the gas-powered hot water heater in a separate room which is sealed away from the house and a fresh air pipe vented from the outside into that room.
Gas stoves must be equipped with electric starters so the pilot light isn’t running constantly.
The stove needs to be coupled with an automatic hood fan so when the stove is started, the hood fan automatically turns on to circulate air.
