heating oil advice

If this is the first time you have used an oil-fired heating system, there are a number of things you need to know before you order.

Most heating oil fired domestic boilers are fuelled by kerosene. If you are unsure which type of heating oil your system or range uses please arrange for an Oftec registered engineer to look at your system. Some oil-fired boilers and cookers benefit from kerosene with added lubricants, so check with your supplier before purchasing your oil. Directoil offers both regular kerosene and our advanced Cleanheat kerosene.

You will also need to know the capacity of your tank. You can work this out by measuring the dimensions of a metal tank or finding the model number on a plastic tank. Most home heating oil tanks hold between 1,200 and 2,500 litres.

Check that the boiler and tank have been recently serviced before ordering your heating oil. Regular servicing is essential to minimise the risk of breakdown at an inconvenient time. We offer value for money, one off services for various heating systems. click here for a quote.

Check directoil regularly as the price of heating oil can change on a daily basis and being savvy can save you money on your home heating bill.
