Winter is fast approaching – are you prepared for the cold months ahead?
Given the current economic situation, many heating oil users are fearful of how they are going to afford the cost of heating their homes. Here are a few tips on how to save a few pounds off your bill in 2017.
TURN DOWN YOUR THERMOSTAT!
This can make a huge difference. Consumers who turn down their thermostat down by even a couple of degrees notice a big saving.
BUY AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE
It’s worth considering how much you can afford to bulk buy and of course if you can store it.
OFTEC APPROVED SERVICING
Fuel efficiency is obviously of paramount importance when it comes to making savings. Ensure that your boiler is in tip top working order, it’s important to have it serviced at least every 12 months.
We always repeat this but it’s very true; your oil will cost less now than in the depths of winter!
Although you may be fearful about financially preparing for the forthcoming winter months, take heart from knowing that heating oil is cheaper than it’s ever been.
