Get Ready For winter

Top tips for preparing your home

Don't leave it too late

As the nights are getting darker and the days more cold, you're likely to be switching on your heating for longer. We're busy getting ready to ensure all our customers have a warm winter, and on this page we have a few tips to help you stay prepared and keep your home cosy all winter long...

We advise our manual ordering (or On Call) customers to check their tank levels and place fuel orders early, most especially in the run up to Christmas. Whilst we will be making deliveries throughout the festive period, it is an exceptionally busy time of year and can be made worse by impassable roads due to snow and ice, so it pays to plan ahead. For full peace of mind you should place your order when your tank level reaches 40% and if you don’t know how to read your tank gauge, watch the video below to see how...

Banish draughts

Keep heat in and cold air out this winter with quick and easy ways, like dressing your doors with draught excluders and lined curtains. For a longer term investment, it could be worth considering new double glazed windows with heat reflective glass and it may sound obvious, but draw your curtains as soon as it gets dark - it makes a big difference, making your home extra cosy and warm.

Bleed radiators

Regularly bleeding radiators to remove trapped air can significantly improve how efficiently your heating system runs, more importantly just how quickly it will heat up your home.

Relax in warmth with Top Up

Our fantastic, hassle-free and free of charge Top Up service offers our customers the peace-of-mind of not having to check your tank and place your own orders. Instead, we monitor your tank levels and our system places your orders to ensure your tank in topped up before you run out.

Top tips to keep warm all winter

Cut trees back

Please make sure that your driveways and paths are cut back to allow our tankers and drivers to get through easily.

Check your tank

It's especially important that there is no vegetation or flammable materials around your tank. Our drivers will always visually check the health of your tank too - but any concerns report this straightaway.
