Oil. No smell here and historically it's considerably cheaper than gas.

My name's Paul.
Yeah I know what you mean. Actually, I doubled the size of my house two years ago. My ranch is now a three story colonial (That's why I only have a 21 footer). I was suprised my oil consumption only went up a little. Must be because of the newer energy efficent construction materials, and methods. I also sized the oil burner in anticipation of the construction. My father-in-law has gas (which he swears by), and he complains about his gas bills whenever we have a cold winter. He's a plumber by the way.

Oil has more energy (BTU's) per given unit volume than gas.

Down here in the basement, I just fire up all my old tube audio gear, and bask in the warm glow of the filaments. Some of the big stuff can warm the room!!!

Used to have gas, doubled the size of my house and needed new heat and air. Put oil fired hot water heat in and love it. Not held captive by the gas company, I can shop around for the best price. Well maybe the wife shops around. No oil smell either. Also have a woodburner and a fireplace, although they aren't used very much anymore. They'll both be in use this weekend though.
