The start of spring has certainly been tumultuous with the weather being colder, snowier and more extreme than winter rather than showing the usual season characteristics. With this heating oil prices have hit highs and lows in quick succession making it harder for homeowners to catch the market at the right time.

Predicted to last into at least the start of april, temperatures have already reached all time lows and are being forecasted to carry on getting down to as little as -16 in some parts of the country. This has grown increasing concern that some homeowners, especially the most vulnerable, might not be prepared for the unseasonable cold and be left in a situation where heating oil prices are to high and then subsequently cant afford to buy fuel when it is most needed.

Top tips for getting the best heating oil prices throughout the changing seasons -
* Check weekly, fortnightly and even monthly weather forecasts. By doing this you can not only make sure you have enough fuel for when the weather is bad but it gives you a little heads up on when heating oil prices might drop a little if it gets warmer or there is a change in conditions
* Compare suppliers by getting online quotes for heating oil prices. Most will be priced competitively but depending on a number of factors such as location, quantity and type of order it can change.
* Sign up for newsletters and check supplier websites for news updates.
