Heating a house on Madeira: gas or electricity?

edited December 1969 in General
What will be cheaper to occasionally heat my house near Ribeira Brava, a portable electric- or a portable gas heater?
Installing a wood burner is too expensive considering the limited number of times it will be needed.
I find that electricity costs twice as much as in the UK, yet some of my Portuguese friends say that it is cheaper than gas.
Any advice / experience gratefully received.


  • despite the price - with gas your house will get wery wet or you have to leave the windows open during heating ;)
