Keep your home warm with domestic heating oil deliveries

As well as having many industrial purposes, heating oil is also a popular home heating fuel for domestic users. That’s why here at Speedy Fuels, we deliver home heating oil across London and the UK to customers who typically aren’t on the national grid.

Domestic heating oil is no different from its industrial counterpart although order quantities tend to be on opposite ends of the spectrum. A typical domestic oil user will buy their fuel in 1000-litre orders whereas a school, college or commercial building will order a much larger volume in order to heat a generally larger space.

Domestic Oil Prices & Costs

The cost of domestic heating oil varies throughout the year and commonly increases around the winter periods. Anybody who buys heating oil for home usage will probably tell you to purchase your domestic oil in the summer months when the prices are usually cheaper. However, when you buy your oil from Speedy Fuels you’ll be glad to know we’ll always try to save you money on your order, whatever the time of year.

How can I save money on my home heating oil?

Oil purchased for domestic use can be costly, but there are ways for you to save even more money when purchasing home heating oil.

For instance, if you buy heating oil during off-peak periods before demand increases (usually during the summer or early into autumn before the cold sets in), you can potentially make savings by ordering whilst demand is still low.

As you can imagine in winter, lots of people want to ensure they aren’t going to run out of heating oil and therefore deliveries increase as the demand increases.

So, of course, the time of year is an important factor when looking at domestic oil prices, but another key point is the quantity of heating oil you plan to buy. Like with most products, buying in bulk will often provide you with better savings and heating oil is no different.

So as you can see, these are two main ways to save money on your heating oil this year. If you would like to see if we can help you save even more, call our team today on 0330 123 3773 for a quote.

Which type of heating oil do I need for my central heating at home?

Heating oil is a particular blend of kerosene which has been perfected to burn at the best temperature for home heating systems. It has several names which people use to reference it and if you’re a new buyer, it can sometimes feel like you’re being bombarded with options.

Standard home heating oil is also known as:

  • Heating Heating
  • Domestic Oil
  • Kerosene
  • Kero
  • 28 Second Heating Oil
  • Burning Oil

All of these terms represent the perfect heating oil solution for domestic users.

Low carbon alternative to home heating oil

From 15th June 2022 in England and 23rd November in Wales, Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (HVO) has been formally approved for use for compliance with the Building Regulations in HEAT applications as a low carbon fuel!

When using HVO for the decarbonisation of off-grid hard-to-treat properties, compared to other government backed solutions such as heat pumps and bio-mass, HVO has both a lower CO2e value and a lower primary energy factor than bio-mass wood pellets and electricity required to power a heat pump.
