You probably won’t notice the difference that this makes in your home, but if you do find that you’re cold at home, rather than turning the heating oil up, simply set your boiler to come on a little earlier, that way you won’t be cold while you wait for the house to heat up.
OFTEC approved Service: To save money on heating oil, the fuel efficiency of the boiler is the key! Like any appliance or engine it is important to have your boiler serviced regularly, at least every 12 months to ensure that it is delivering optimum efficiency as even a small percentage drop in performance will be costly in the winter.
Insulate: You don’t need to double glaze your windows or spend hundreds of pounds having your cavity walls filled to make your house a warmer home – although it does help. Insulation is one of the most cost-effective ways to make your home warmer. Hanging thick curtains on the front and back doors, and using cheap draught exclusion strips on windows and brushes on the bottom of doors keeps cold air out and warm air in so your boiler won’t have to work as hard to keep you warm, and you won’t have to work as hard to pay for all that heating oil you’re burning.
