Cold Weather Priority Scheme WCF Chandlers CWP

At WCF Chandlers, we are proud of the fact that we provide the highest level of customer service to our customers. We recognise that anyone aged 75 and over may be vulnerable during the colder winter months, and how important a reliable supply of heating oil can be. Taking additional care of our more vulnerable customers is important to us. That’s why we have been part of the Cold Weather Priority Initiative since 2018, and why WCF Chandlers offer peace of mind when it comes to your heating oil. As a local supplier of domestic heating oil, you can register yourself, a friend or family members with us that might benefit from the Cold Weather Priority Scheme. There is no charge for this service, we just want to ensure you keep safe this winter.

What is Cold Weather Priority?

The Cold Weather Priority (CWP) enables heating oil suppliers like WCF Chandlers to identify and prioritise vulnerable customers, to ensure they have the fuel they need to stay warm all winter.

How Does the Cold Weather Priority Scheme Work?

The Cold Weather Priority (CWP) scheme is simple in its design, as it is effective at looking after elderly heating oil customers – if your household has one or more resident aged 75 and over, or someone who would be vulnerable if the house didn’t have heating, you are eligible to take part in the scheme. The scheme works by providing an extra layer of support for elderly customers. By knowing exactly how many of our customers are at risk, we can take pro-active steps to prioritise fuel deliveries to these customers, particularly during times of fuel shortages or extremely cold weather.

How can I prevent my tank from running out of oil?

We know that many of our older customers struggle to manually check the level of heating oil in their tank and this can make it difficult to judge the amount of oil needed. To help our customers and provide peace of mind, we now offer an automatic delivery service which we call ‘Tank Smart’.

How does a Tank Smart Monitor work?

A Tank Smart Monitor is fitted directly to your oil storage tank This system sends us a weekly report of your oil level, allowing us to fill on your behalf as required. So, you can enjoy hassle-free home heating and say goodbye to checking your tank and running out of heating oil, and most of all it means you don’t have to put yourself by risk checking your heating oil levels in times of bad weather or icy conditions underfoot.
