As we enter a New Year, there is no better time than now to set your resolutions for the year ahead. Whether you’re looking to save money on your heating bills or you want to be smarter when it comes to bulk-buying heating oil, our experts have got three New Year’s resolutions for heating oil users below.
Plan ahead when buying
It pays to plan ahead when buying your heating oil – in fact, the more you plan ahead, the more money you could save. Buying the right amount of heating oil is not only crucial to ensure you never run out, but it’s also essential if you want to get the best deal possible. If you do run out and have to pay for an unexpected emergency fuel delivery, it will cost you more, so make sure you plan ahead and always buy in bulk.
Consider the time of year and global trends
In addition to planning ahead, make it your mission to be smarter when it comes to buying heating oil. You should always consider the time of year when buying heating oil; in winter, the demand for oil is naturally higher as the weather is much colder, whereas in summer, the price is generally much lower. Try to purchase your heating oil in the warmer months when prices are cheaper.
There are also lots of different global conditions that affect the price of heating oil. Factors, such as severe weather conditions, can dramatically affect the price of heating oil, so make it your mission to keep on top of global trends and industry news in relation to heating oil.
Service your boiler
Whether you can’t remember the last time your boiler was serviced or your annual service is due soon, make sure you don’t skip it. It’s crucial your boiler is serviced regularly to keep it in top condition and ensure any problems or issues are detected early. An annual boiler service is a great way to make the most of your domestic heating without having to fork out more on heating oil. When booking your boiler service, make sure you choose an experienced and OFTEC-certified heating engineer.
