      We use a convection heater minus a fan to heat our lounge. It's always lovely and warm but we do plan about 15 mins ahead before we want to use the room. We don't heat the bedrooms etc. but have electric blankets to heat the beds which are turned off once we get into bed. Our family room has a gas heater with a fan. Our power bills are not too bad.

      The most important thing is to zone the house and to only heat the rooms you use a lot. Unless you have time and are very patient, I would avoid oil filled column heaters as they take ages to heat a room despite the fact they are economical to run. I saw a report last week that suggested gas heaters and convection are the most common affordable options.
