Fuel Poverty In The UK

  Snow. Ice. Wind. Winter. 4 words that can cause some of us great joy; immediate thoughts of cosying up by the fire, watching TV with some food and maybe a cup of tea. There’s nothing better, bliss. This isn’t the thought we all have unfortunately, in fact, roughly 42% of those in Northern Ireland have a completely different thought this Winter. And that thought revolves around one thing… Read more

Heating Oil – The Best Choice for Consumers

Heating oil has been the cheapest way to heat your home since January 2015. So consumers who have condensing boilers have made an excellent choice, and many are now able to heat a three-bedroom house for £750 a year – very difficult to achieve with a gas boiler. An oil condensing boiler is much cheaper than any of the renewable energy options. The average annual bill for customers using oil… Read more

Red Diesel – Your Questions Answered

Red diesel is nothing more or less than ordinary diesel fuel of the kind that you might put into a car, van or minibus at your local service station. Where it differs from that fuel, however, is that it is taxed at a lower rate for certain allowed industrial uses. So why the name? Because the taxman (Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs, or HMRC) likes to know who is using it and whether they are l… Read more

Heating Oil Price Predictions

    • Anthony My understanding is that, yes, it will use slightly more oil as the boiler just thinks it's heating an extra radiator. However, this would still work out cheaper to heat your water rather than using the electric heater!
    • Charlene Hiya. I was just wondering if heating the water with the oil heating whilst heating was on uses more oil? My partner insists on turning the water off when the heating is on as he thinks it uses more oil, but I'm not convinced. He would rather use the electric water heater. Can anyone help? Thanks.
    • Lynna Nalbach I believe this site holds very good pent subject material posts .
    • Cara This is a great guide, as around 4 million households aren't connected to the main gas grid. Heating oil is normally used in a ‘wet’ heating system where an oil-fired boiler heats water, which provides central heating via radiators and hot water through the taps in your home. The main difference between mains gas and heating oil is that it is delivered by road and stored in a tank, which you may have to buy or rent from your supplier. Heat-only and combination condensing oil-fired boiler types are both available. Most oil-fired combination boilers have an internal hot water store to supply domestic hot water rather than the instantaneous heating more common in gas boilers.
