What is the payout for converting from gas heat to electric heat?

In our rush to convert from incandescent to LED, nobody has included the cost of replacing heat generated from incandescent bulbs to the lower heat given off by LED lights. What is good for Australia (getting rid of heat), is not as desirable as in Canada (wanting more heat). The heat loss between the two lighting options must be made up by some other electric heat option, i.e. baseboard heating, electric forces air furnace.

What is actual cost in dollars

That would be different in every state and every province due to the regional variances in electricity rates, so there is no way for us to give you a dollar value.
