    We have zoned central gas heating.
    The gas bills in winter are big like $350 but the house is massive.
    We don't heat the front of the house at all coz we don't go in there but the bedrooms and living are always heated in winter.
    I know 2 people with hydronic heating and they love it. Apparently it's great for allergies etc as it doesn't produce the dust that ducted heating does.

    We installed a wood burner last winter. Our gas bills over winter averaged $800, so we simply couldn't afford it anymore.

    None. Might buy a fan heater, but it never seems worth it.

    We have ducted reverse cycle heating - bills are no bigger than summer using cooling feature!

    We run on 23 deg - bills are roughly 350-400 per quarter.

    I think that's pretty good!!!!

    We have an oil heater and a convection heater.

    Neither are very economical to run, but we are renting right now and they are the only options we have (no gas, no reverse cycle air con).

    We would freeze without them, as the house is all timber floors (no carpet).

    We have an ancient (over 20yrs) wall aircon/heater the old square brown ones. It doesn't work great but we have a small old wooden floored cottage which gets very cold. It can generally keep the hall way, our room (where DD sleeps) and part of the loungeroom at 23/24 degrees.

    But's its on the way out. We rent so it's not up to us to change it.

    I wish it was changed though it's definately on the way out.
