Living in a rural town or village means you are likely part of the 15% of UK homes using an alternative fuel such as Kerosene to fuel your boiler.
UK homes depend heavily on central heating systems to keep chilly weather and cold nights at bay. Gas has traditionally been the cheapest fuel, closely followed by heating oil and then LPG. However, with gas bills set to double over the next 12 months, heating oil could become the cheapest way to run your central heating system.
Heating bills are inevitable, so getting the best price for your heating oil is essential.
The average domestic heating oil tank can hold between 1000
and 2000 litres of home heating oil.
The more oil you buy the better the price, so think about buying ahead for the year and filling your tank, pairing up with a neighbour or joining our buying group.
Supply and demand dramatically influence the price of home heating oil, so summer is a good time to buy as lower demand helps to drive prices down.
When looking for the best price for heating oil it is worth checking with local suppliers in your area, as fuel coming from a local depot will have fewer miles to travel, thus keeping the price for transport lower, a saving that can be passed on to you as a lower pence per litre.
