Our Guide To Saving Money On Your Heating Oil

Order at the right time

It seems like a simple suggestion but it can make a huge difference to the amount you pay for your heating oil. We often see that the price of heating oil increases more during cold spells, this is often due to the increase in demand as people realise they're running low on oil.

Keep an eye on the long-range weather forecasts and if you see a cold spell coming it's often a good idea to top up your tank before the cold comes!


Use Heating Oil Additives

Heating Oil Additives have been proven to improve the efficiency and life of heating oil boilers, AGA's and Rayburns. By mixing additives with your heating oil you could see your oil lasting much longer and save money on repairs to your heating oil system.

Next time you order your heating oil consider ordering a bottle of AdMax or Agamax



Insulate Your Hot Water Cylinder

These days most people's hot water cylinders are well insulated however if yours isn't you could be missing a trick! Even if it is insulated check how warm the exterior is to the touch.

If your tank is warm it might be that you could have your tank re-insulated with more advanced insulation, keeping your water warmer for longer and reducing the need to spend money on your heating oil!
