    Don't know about prices, but you can decide when you want to use the gas. Somebody else decides when you get the electricity, and it is not when you need it, it is there for later when you might not need it.

    Go for gas. It will be cheaper to run.

    Yes,I agree gas is probably the better of the two. Do not know if any of those price comparison sites might help you make up your mind ?

    I have total heating with total control and it costs me around about 30 a week,the worst thing about it is when there are powercuts in the winter....the house is freezing in no time and no way to heat it! x
    The nice thing about living in a small place is that if you dont know what you are doing....there's always somebody who does,or thinks they do! x

    It you get a power cut you are probably worse off with gas as the gas central heating needs electricity to run as for storage heaters would have some warmth as they hold the some heat for quite some time depending on their setting

    GAS, GAS, GAS!

    Electric is more expensive to run and after a few hours into a power cut the warmth has gone! At least with gas you can still have the fire going and make a cuppa.
    Why be a hard rock when you really are a gem!
