We’re into October and the nights have already started getting chilly. Make sure you get your heating oil order in now rather than leaving it til it’s freezing cold and your tank is desperate for a top up.
Demand for heating oil is obviously governed by the weather. A lengthy cold spell, particularly one that’s quite unexpected, can mean terminals are not able to fulfil the volumes of oil required by consumers.
This demand sees distributors having to go further afield to get supplies which could leave some consumers out in the cold.
If you’re and elderly consumer you can benefit from The Cold Weather Priority (CWP) which enables heating oil suppliers to identify and prioritise those aged 75+, to ensure they have the fuel they need to stay warm all winter.
