Preparation is the key to a warm Christmas

Anyone with a heating oil boiler needs to ‘think ahead’ in advance of the Christmas season to make sure their boiler is working and that they have a good stock of heating oil.

A domestic heating oil user from Devon has been talking to his local paper, the Okehampton People, about his disastrous experience last Christmas.

Richard Penny lives in a very rural area and did not realise until Christmas Eve that he was out of heating oil. He found it extremely difficult to track down a depot that would deliver that close to Christmas.

He finally got the delivery of oil, but then could not get his boiler to fire up and was left without heat until New Year. Penny advised readers,

"With winter fast approaching, now's the time to make sure you know what to do when the worst happens, someone who can sort out your heating problems and keep you and your family warm."

It’s a good idea to sign up to the Team Energy boiler maintenance scheme that takes all the hassle out of checking your boiler as they carry out an inspection each year, preventing unexpected breakdowns.

To make sure you never run out of oil, sign up to a planned delivery service available from local suppliers O J Williams and CPL Petroleum. The depot tracks your usual use and delivers more oil to your door when you are running low.
