Heating oil additives benefits:
Heating oil users are constantly on the lookout for ways of reducing oil consumption and improving the efficiency of their boilers. Even though many will think of turning down the thermostat, improving insulation or replacing their boiler to improve efficiency, but other options such as oil additives are a cheaper option to improve efficiency.
Protection from wear and tear
Heating oil additives in your tank can reduce the wear and tear of your boiler helping to prolong its life, reduce breakdowns and lower servicing costs.
Heating oil additives contain antioxidants which help to stabilise the oil in your tank. This help prevent degrading and makes sure the fuel combust correctly.
Reduced sludge and contaminants
Adding a heating oil additive can help reduce sludge, rust and other deposits building up in the oil tank. As rust and sludge can block filters, build up can lead to a boiler shutdown and an expensive repair bill.
Reduced soot deposits
Deposits building up on the nozzle and heat exchanger of your boiler will reduce the efficiency of the burn therefore, will burn more oil to maintain temperature. Heating oil additives reduce this by providing a cleaner burn, making your boiler more efficient.
Reduction in unpleasant odours
A fragranced heating oil additive can help reduce odours around the fuel tank and boiler that are sometimes unpleasant.
