When should I buy heating oil?

Heating oil is typically cheapest during the summer months, when demand is lowest. Buying at this time also ensures you’re prepared for any cold snaps.

However, we realise not everybody can fill their tank in the summer, so our advice would be to order it as early as possible before winter arrives. Prices and overall demand will still be lower, so you will avoid long waits to get your heating oil, which can sometimes happen if it snows or it's around Christmas.
