Cold winter evenings are the last thing you want to be thinking about as you enjoy the warmth of sun on your back!
However, those ‘in the know’ are already thinking ahead and preparing for a cold winter. That’s because now is the best time to stock up on heating oil – not only to catch the cheapest deals but also to spread the cost by paying monthly in more manageable bite-size payments!
“If you have oil central heating and haven’t already filled up your tank, now is the time to stock up.”
That’s the advice from Ocean’s Energy Champion, Jon Hedley.
“Oil prices go up in a cold snap so I recommend that you shop around and maybe consider using an oil buying club or use the heating oil price comparison website ‘Boilerjuice.com’.”
At the moment, as you can see from the Boiler Juice graph above, fuel is much cheaper than it was last December. Don’t hang around and wait to fill up your tank when it’s freezing cold in November or December – when demand is high (adding delays to delivery times) and prices can rocket through the roof.
Some suppliers or comparison services like Boiler Juice, offer a flexible monthly payment plan so that you can spread the cost evenly or on flexible terms. They can also find the best deal in your area each time you need a delivery.
Don’t leave it till it’s too late and get caught out by the winter fuel price hikes! You know it makes sense!
