Start up costs on electric are high but the convenience is incredible, as is the safety, particularly in a hot town, which Albuquerque is. While I vastly prefer, and would advocate for moly, SiC has the advantage of not needing a transformer. New Mexico has pretty reasonable electric rates, so it would cost a good deal less to run.

Insulate your hood. Mine is six inches thick, all steel and insulation. It's very cool in my shop, almost too cool.
