My personal preference is for open wood-burning fireplaces and wood stoves. Here's a comparison of electric, gas, pellet, open wood-burning, and wood stoves if interested: http://lowtechtimes.com/2008/02/03/fireplace-buying-guide/

I have written quite a few pieces on the difference between the various types of fireplaces. Using a fireplace as a heat source, you can take the chill out of the room. Some that are backed with some kind of reflector shield can really throw some heat. Electric is probably not your most efficient because you need a backup in a power outage. Gas and traditional do just fine. And the ventless gel will take the chill off the room too.
