What Is Heating Oil ?

Cheap Heating Oil

Home Heating oil is derived from petroleum and contains natural gases such as butane and propane and when burned, it releases energy that is used to heat buildings.

It is mainly used in off gas rural areas (Scotland and Wales ) where access to the gas grid is limited

Heating oil is generally more economical on a unit-by-unit basis than natural gas, electric heating, and wood stoves. It also provides the added benefit of being easy to store at home.

There are two main types of heating oil – gas heating oil and kerosene.

Kerosene is more common in homes, while gas heating oil tends to be used more in commercial properties. If your boiler does take both, you’ll likely be better off going for kerosene.

Where to Find Cheap Home Heating Oil

You can use specialist heating oil sites to compare rival companies. There are two types of sites – brokers and simple comparisons.

With the brokers, they secure a deal and you pay them if you’re happy with the price. A comparison simply lists the cheapest prices it can find.

Therefore half of a tank would leave you with 500 litres.
Burning at an average of 7.7 litres per hour, 520 litres of heating oil would last roughly 67 hours.
The average size of a residential oil tank is 275 gallons.
On days when the outside temperature averages 50 degrees Fahrenheit, a typical household will consume 2 gallons of heating oil.
When you divide a full 275-gallon tank by two, the heating oil will last for approximately 137 days, or four months and two weeks.
When demand is low, the price of heating oil drops, making the summer the best time to get oil for a reduced cost as most people don’t need to heat their homes.
Specifically, oil is generally cheapest between April and September.

How Much Oil Do You Need Each Year?

On average, UK households get through around 2,500 litres of heating oil each year.

The average domestic heating oil tank can hold between 1,000 and 1,500 litres of home heating oil.

So depending on the size of your tank, you’ll likely need three deliveries each year to cover your usage.


Minimum order amounts

The minimum amount of heating oil you can order is 500 litres a pop, which could set you back about £500


Benefits Of Heating Oil

✅  Clean Burning

Heating oil is a very clean burning fuel and  produces significantly less soot than in years past.

✅  Economical

Heating oil can save you money as you get more heat out of a smaller amount of heating oil than you do from natural gas.

✅ Efficient

Oil burns 300 degrees hotter than natural gas, meaning a single gallon of heating oil offers 125,000 BTUs

Natural gas comes in around 20,000 BTUs per pound, making it significantly less efficient.

✅ Safe

Heating oil is extremely safe.  There are no carcinogens (cancer-causing agents) in oil.

✅  In Supply

Heating oil is a petroleum based product that is still commonly processed. Supplies far surpass the demand for oil, which also helps the price per gallon stay within a reasonable range.

✅Oil Furnaces Last a Long Time

Another benefit to heating oil is that oil furnaces last longer than other types of furnaces, like natural gas furnaces.

Oil furnaces have been known to last for 30 years or more, where others need to be replaced after an average of 10 to 15 years.

✅Heating Oil Delivery is Convenient

Heating oil is delivered directly to your home and stored in a tank on your property.
