I am trying to decide on what is the most cost effective way to heat my house.   At this time the only choices we have for hot water heating & domestic systems is elelctric/pellet or oil.  I have 115 sq meters stone villa in tuscany and because of logistic to the property I can not install a GPL tank.  I am hoping to hear from someone who has any knowlege and or experiance with these two fuel choices   At this time the easiest approach is electric but is electric the most expensive.   If so how much more. I look forward to your help
