Winter Heating Oil

Now is the time to consider your winter home heating oil needs

Be Prepared and Order Your Winter Heating Oil Early

We recommend you start to think about your winter heating oil requirements during Autumn. Planning ahead will reduce your chances of running dry, particularly if there is a sudden onset of bad weather.

Our advice is to take a fill of your tank as early as you can, so long as you can afford to do so. This means you’ll be prepared should the colder weather start earlier than anticipated. It would also mean that you would beat the rush for deliveries leading up to the Christmas and New Year period.

On average, between October and March a household will use two-thirds of its yearly heating oil consumption!

Don't Forget To Check Your Heating Oil Level

Monitoring your oil levels will reduce your chances of running dry. This is important throughout the year but especially during the winter, when our delivery schedules will be at their busiest.

Ordering before your oil level gets too low, means we will have time to deliver to you, as we anticipate our delivery lead time to increase during winter.

The Importance of Boiler Maintenance in Winter

We recommend that boilers are serviced at least every 12 months to ensure they are working safely and efficiently. An inefficient boiler will use more fuel than an efficient one.

If you have not had your boiler serviced over the summer months we recommend you do so before the winter begins, to ensure it is prepared for the extra strain it will experience with the colder weather.

An annual boiler service can help to reduce the chances of unexpected breakdowns or maintenance issues over winter.

During a service our OFTEC registered engineers will check your tank for any signs of damage such as: Rusting, bulging, leaks or general damage. They will also check the base and pipes for cracks or damage
