comment Was this basement window installed properly?
make sure that downspout is extended a little further away from the large window well. as it looks in the pic, water could end up running back into it.

comment Electric requirements for gas stove
Personal preference - look at duel fuel ranges. I am assuming you are talking about ranges with cooktop and a stove, and moving to gas to get a gas cooktop. If so, get the duel fuel ones have gas cooktop but electric ovens. Gas ovens are not as popular because they are harder to regulate temperature and do not cook as evenly. As other have said, run 220 so you have it and you you are not limited in the future when you get the new one.
