Essential checklist for cheap home heating oil delivery
If you feel like you need some help with your heating budgets, let us help you manage your home heating costs with our handy checklist for cheap home heating oil delivery. We’ve put together this list of tips for you to check off so that you never pay over the odds again for your home heating oil.
- Plan in advance
Preparation is key when it comes to getting a great deal on your home heating oil. If you can order your heating oil in advance of when you need it, you’ll be able to monitor the daily fluctuating prices and buy when they are lowest. That way you’ll ensure a great deal and get best value for your spend. Global market trends dictate the cost of oil per barrel, but rest assured that we pass on any savings we can to our customers.
- Monitor usage
Keep a close eye on how much oil you are using with an electronic tank gauge. This will help you forecast how long your oil is likely to last and it will help you plan ahead so you know exactly when to order so that you never run out. As the unpredictable Northern Irish weather moves into autumn, you’re likely to use more heating oil in the next few weeks than you have been using so check it regularly until you can be sure of an accurate pattern.
- Get a cheap quote online any time
Our website online quote form allows you to get a quote any day and at any time – you can even do it on the go from your mobile if you like. As soon as you’ve received your quote, you can simply choose a delivery date and pay – the ordering process is extremely easy and fast.
- Pick a delivery slot that suits you
The next item on the checklist for cheap home heating oil delivery is of course to pick your delivery date, and this is where your advanced planning and monitoring comes in handy as if you can order well enough in advance you can have your home heating oil delivered for relatively little cost to you – just a few pounds, if anything. If you run out of oil unexpectedly, you’ll need an express delivery which will cost you more.
- Order maximum volume you can afford
It makes sense that with economies of scale the more you buy in bulk, the more you save as your unit price is lower. Check the capacity of your tank and your remaining oil before you order a larger amount – we can deliver whatever amount you like, but please remember that the standard capacity of a domestic home heating oil tank is around 1300 litres.
- Boiler service
It’s time to get your boiler serviced so that any home heating oil delivered is used in the most efficient way possible. Your heating engineer will check for any potential hazards and give you added peace of mind when it comes to boiler safety in your home.
