Can I get a good deal on home heating oil in the spring?

Spring has sprung! The daffodils are out and the temperature feels, well slightly less arctic than a few weeks ago, but we’re still going to bring a coat, you know, just in case. It’s the best time of year to do any property changes you might be thinking about as the property market tends to get busy now, or if you plan to stay put in your home a little longer a deep spring clean might be in order, but did you know it’s also a great time of year to get a good deal on home heating oil?

Influences on the cost of home heating oil

Prices of commodities like home heating oil work on the principles of supply and demand, much like everything else, where if a lot of people want something at the same time the demand increases and supply tightens as demands are met. This in turn pushes the cost up. Using these principles, if fewer people want home heating oil in the warmer months in Ireland (when might those be?!), supply increases as demand falls and it is therefore easier to get a good price on this essential commodity.

Home heating oil doesn’t have a ‘shelf-life’ as such, so buying it now will not cause it to go off by the time you use it in the colder months. However, if you would like to preserve your oil delivery in the summer months until you use it again in the autumn, you can buy an additive for your oil tank and add this to your oil tank before the delivery. These additives can help reduce the sludge build up in your tank if your heating won’t be switched on for a while.
