I'm not sure I'd be comfortable running space heaters in places I couldn't see them, and all day/night, ie to keep pipes from freezing. I know lots of people do it, but it seems every winter there are really terrible home fire stories that seem to be associated with space heaters. If I had the choice, I'd choose wood, and just keep your oil heat thermosta low, but above the freezing point for your pipes.
I dunno but we use an electric space heater in the room we hang out in for the bulk of the day so we can keep the thermostat low. It's a big house so it makes sense to me that this would be cheaper than keeping the whole house at a comfortable temperature. Basically our living room and kitchen are the only warm places in winter and we just dash through the other parts except when we are in bed with a pile of blankets, lol.
