At Rix, we care.
Over 1.5 million homes in the UK use oil for their home heating because it is safe, clean, and efficient. In 2010, 4 million tonnes of heating oil were sold, of which 2.5 million tonnes was for domestic heating. New A-rated oil-fuelled boilers can produce up to 97% efficiency, making oil a more economical fuel than others.
Domestic heating oil is traditionally cheaper than LPG, cleaner and easier to use than solid fuel. It’s also safe and extremely economical.
