It's hard to influence the heating oil prices set by suppliers. It is based on a number of worldwide and national factors such as; crude oil prices, the number of competing suppliers in each area, weather conditions and more.
What you can have more control over is the price you pay. Here's how you can save money on your heating bills.
Get your neighbours to order
It's no secret that oil delivery makes up part of the cost. The more litres we deliver to your area, the cheaper it
is for us which makes it cheaper for you. For this reason, we provide group savings to drop your price. We pass these additional savings back to you*
Paying for a next day delivery can be more expensive. Plan ahead for cheaper delivery slots.
Check oil price trends
Prices often change on a daily basis. Keeping an eye on these trends will give you an advantage.
Time your order
Many people believe that heating oil becomes cheaper in the summer. However, our research shows prices were at their cheapest during October-December for 2013, 2014 and 2015.
Increase oil efficiency
Heating oil additives can improve efficiency by taking care of tank sludge.
Increase boiler efficiency
