Electric baseboard

Has anyone used electric baseboard as a main heat source in a home. Was thinking ogf using them in bedrooms only. Considering getting the ones with the oil filled core.

Might go to http://warmair.net Compare fuel cost . To see if electric is best. Yes many homes do. But best if you need Ac go for heatpump in home.

Also dont know why and cant say why. But any homes here that have used the oil filled core over just the elements in the units . The fuel bill is much much higher.
