With over 23 million gas customers in the UK, you’d be forgiven for thinking your options for home heating are limited to this.  In fact, around 1.5 million households in the UK buy heating oil to warm their homes, and enjoying the many benefits fuel oil suppliers can offer them.

You Choose When You Buy Heating Oil to Save Money

With those cold and often long UK winters, it’s hard to avoid using more fuel to heat your home during the colder months of the year.  With a traditional gas heating system, you are effectively buying fuel ‘on demand’, paying more during those months you’re using it more – when prices can also be more expensive due to higher demand. 

The beauty of running your home on domestic heating oil is that you buy your fuel oil from a local supplier in bulk and store it, giving you the opportunity to stock up when the price of domestic heating oil is cheaper.  There are seasonal differences with summer months generally cheaper and a good time to stock up, but the average price of heating oil can change on a daily basis.   So far for 2020, there has been a good drop in price year on year for heating oil.

Monitoring prices and stocking up when prices are at their best not only gives you control on how much you pay for fuel oil, but it also helps you to make big savings on your domestic heating oil supply.  As a local heating oil supplier covering Newbury, Devizes and the surrounding areas, Vale Oils group orders together, cutting costs and passing savings on to our customers.

Better Performance and Efficiency

As backed up by the National Energy Foundation, modern oil-fired burners can be very energy efficient, with seasonal operating efficiencies as high as 97%.  When compared to electric heating furnaces running around 31% efficiency and gas at 77%, it’s easy to see why domestic heating oil is a great choice.

Oil also burns at over 70c, which is hotter than the alternative fuel heating options.  This allows your house to heat up much quicker, contributing to heating oil efficiency.

When comparing heating oil companies, it’s important to consider the quality of the heating oil suppliers are providing you with.

Heating Oil is Safe

According to a Gas Safety Week survey in 2018, 1 in 9 gas boilers inspected by Gas Safe Register were deemed to be unsafe.  The Department of Health and Social Care reported that there are 50 deaths and 4,000 admissions to A&E each year in relation to CO poisoning in England and Wales alone. 

Using heating oil to warm your home is one of the safest options for your family.  Domestic heating oil is non-explosive and doesn’t burn in liquid state, it has to be heated to over 60c, but at this point it begins to vaporise.  Leaking oil also does not explode, making it a safe alternative to gas heating for your home.

Using a heating oil supplier such as Vale Oils, who offer a premium fuel with additives to reduce service problems, you can increase the longevity of your heating oil system to run safe and efficient home heating.
