Be 'winter wise' and prepare for winter with Kettlewell Fuels

Be 'winter wise' and prepare for winter with Kettlewell Fuels With winter fast approaching, it’s essential to make sure your oil heating system is ready to keep you warm. The team at Kettlewell Fuels has put together five helpful top tips to help you make the most of your home heating oil system during the winter season... 1: Keep Your Heating Oil System Maintained Regularly check your heating oil boiler and tank to ensure they are working efficiently and not wasting heating oil. For optimal performance, Kettlewell Fuels recommends having your oil heating system serviced annually by your local OFTEC engineer. 2: Book Your Heating Oil Delivery Early To avoid weather-related delays and higher costs, it’s best to book your heating oil delivery in advance. During the winter months, severe weather and seasonal demand can affect heating oil prices and delivery times. We suggest you order your oil early enough before your oil level becomes too low. To place your order or get advice and assistance, contact the Kettlewell Fuels customer service team.
