UK domestic heating oil prices are at an all-time high in 2022; therefore, it is no surprise that many people who heat their homes using oil are eager to reduce bill costs. 

While oil heating is a cheaper alternative to gas due to its higher efficiency, there are still ways to reduce your oil heating costs. 

From implementing fundamental changes to our environment to choosing the right oil tank to heat your home – simple changes can result in significant savings. 

At Tuffa Tanks, we work closely with our customers to ensure that their properties are well-equipped with high-quality, reliable, and energy-efficient oil heating systems. 

In addition to this, we are committed to helping our customers with technical advice regarding installing oil tanks and adapting to a more environmentally-friendly energy approach to running their homes. 

Below, you’ll find our guidance on how to drastically reduce your commercial and domestic oil heating prices to save money on energy year-round effectively:

Plan ahead for oil consumption

A bit of early planning can never do any harm. When it comes to oil heating, you should anticipate future scenarios you may find yourself in to gauge where money can be saved. 

By keeping your oil topped up in advance, the chances of running out of fuel are reduced. This means you won’t have to worry about relying on an emergency supply and paying a higher price if you find yourself out of oil and unable to heat your home at the last minute. 

Think about energy efficiency 

Creating a home or property that is energy efficient is easier than you may think. Simple changes here and there can go a long way in reducing your oil heating bills. 

Insulating your home properly will prevent heat from escaping and being lost unnecessarily and may even result in you using heating less throughout the year.

Another simple step to saving money on heating bills is to ensure that all drafts are adequately sealed. 

Many people don’t investigate where heat is being lost in their properties, for example, through drafts in windows. Even upgrading your windows to double glazing can make the world of difference. 

We recommend carrying out a simple analysis of your home to identify where you can implement improvements. 

Be aware of market trends.

Having an awareness of market trends will help you save money. You’ll be better positioned to make the relevant decisions and changes to reduce your oil heating bills by being one step ahead. 

There are many ways to keep up-to-date with industry news; all you have to do is a quick Google search most of the time to find the information that is valuable to you. 

By regularly checking such trends, you’ll always be clear on what you should be paying for your energy and where you may be being overcharged. A straightforward way to save money is to think ahead and purchase oil ahead of time at its lowest price; without relevant industry research, you may struggle to do this. 

Maintain your tank’s condition

One of the wisest ways to reduce your oil heating bills is to check up on your oil tank’s condition regularly. Maintenance matters when it comes to heating your home, and unfortunately, many people fail to put much time into this area. 

Simple issues such as contamination can lead to more significant problems when not treated promptly. Make sure that you quickly fix any issues your oil tank has, such as leaks, to avoid costs from doubling down the line.
