What oil should I use for my basement?

Question

Since we are all basement experts. Which oil should I use? 

Basements are typically colder so I was leaning towards something thinner like a 5w-20 but there can be hot spots around the furnace and water heater and am afraid of coking. 

As you can see below, I really like to floor it a lot.

I'm using an 0w40 synthetic to take advantage of quick flowing oil during cold starts and adequate viscosity where temperatures get higher. Will probably switch to 5w50 in the summer since I prefer to have the windows open vs run the AC.
