    We've just installed reverse cycle split wall systems in our house. Prior to that we only had a big wood fire. (which we still like to light on the weekends, just because it's nice ) We would have considered a gas heater, but you can't get gas installed up in the hills where we live.

    Our central gas heater just died and where I live it's a top of 6 degrees today. So we have column heaters in the kid's rooms and hubby's shed heater in the living area. Not sure how long it will take to replace our central heating system

    Wood combustion fire is our only heating and it heats the whole house nicely

    Double sided slow combustion fire. I love it but we keep forgetting to get wood!

    In DS's room I use an oil heater.

    Central gas heater, with a column heater on low in the boys' room overnight. Heavy curtains, roller shutters and insulation under the floor, in the walls and ceiling. We're very cosy!

    We have an inbuilt combustion wood heater in the old fire place in the lounge room and a gorgeous open fire place in the dining/kitchen - though this only gets used on super cold days when I'm stuck studying in the dining room.

    We have a big wood heater as the main heater, can't beat the heat it puts out. A split system and panel heater as backup. No gas heating here (no gas in the town unless you buy bottles)
