C# Decimal or Double for Database Decimal

Hello all,

We have a database that was using floats for many fields that we are changing to Decimal(18, 2).    Question is in C# app code we use Double everywhere.  Best to change these now to Decimal datatype or leave as is and double will be fine?

I am wondering if the precision of 2 decimal places would make double a better candidate.
