    I have a woodburner in my lounge plus oil heating but the oil is way too expensive so we're installing a new woodburner and getting it fitted with a boiler to heat water/radiators :yay:

    So how do you heat your home?

    Gas central heating, we do have a lovely gas fire in the lounge but it's currently still in the box waiting for my dad to build up the inside of the chimney!

    Oil for us too! Have a big oil storage thing in the garden! It is bloody expensive but we pay monthly so don't notice as much! Would prefer gas though! X

    Wood burning stove in living room and oil heating. Pay oil weekly on collecting card so doesn't seem as bad when ordering :)

    We have night storage heaters downstairs only. No heating upstairs at all- we have to plug in electric heaters in the bedrooms.

    We have gas central heating and a woodburner in the lounge so we've got the fire on lots and the heating on as little as possible at the moment - lovely in here but the boys are wrapped up warm in bed because it's so much colder upstairs :blush:

    Gas heating and I LOVE it!

    We moved from a flat with economy 7 - whoever invented that needs to be killed by firing squad!

    Our apartment is always so warm and cosy.

    Gas central heating. But we also have an open fire in every room except the bathrooms & Kitchen, it's a big sprawling Victorian house, so a nightmare to heat but I love having the real fires on, makes it all toastie and lovely :)

    We have gas fired underfloor hearing everywhere, no radiators. We have a megaflow cylinder for our hot water, which is run off of our condensing boiler. Cheap to run as the screed in the floor acts like a heat store. Heating bills equate to about 1.3p per hour to run :)

    We also have a solid fuel fire in the sitting room. :)
