The Sutherland Tables report out on 31st October says that heating costs using oil are now sitting at approximately 9% – 13% lower than the four year average. That’s great news for oil users everywhere!
As we enter our heating system’s busiest time, there are things we can do to ensure our heating costs are even less.
Here are our top 5 tips for keeping your heating oil bill down this winter:
- Water heating accounts for about 18% of the energy consumed in your home. Turn down the temperature of your water heater to the warm setting (120°F). You’ll not only save energy, you’ll avoid scalding your hands!
- Service your boiler regularly.
- Bulk buy your oil.
- Invest in some insulation.
- Wear more clothes. No, seriously! Rather than whacking up the heating, with throw on a woolly jumper or snuggle under a thick blanket.
