How much heating oil does an average house use?

2000 litres of heating oil may last a home one year and it may last another household three months, depending on a number of factors, such as:
- Size of your property
- Boiler condition
- Storage tank condition
- Time of year / weather
- Family size
- Other heating options
What affects the price of heating oil?
The price of heating oil changes daily due to many factors, such as:

How to keep heating oil prices low
Heating your property efficiently is key. You need to consider how much your heating oil will cost, how long it will last and how much you’ll use.
These handy hints will help you keep your heating oil prices low all year round:
Order heating oil in advance
Timing is everything. Anyone with a heating oil tank faces the task of ensuring it’s topped up in plenty of time to be prepared for whatever Mother Nature brings.
The price you pay for heating oil is affected directly by the crude oil price which fluctuates on a daily basis. If you want to beat the seasonal price hikes, the best time to stock up is during the summer months when demand is lower.
Winter should technically only last three months on the calendar, but as usual, the typical British weather can linger for much longer. When the weather’s cold outside, it’s our busiest time at Crown Oil, so getting into a routine of checking your heating oil level so you can gauge when to order is the key to keeping prices low.

Buy heating oil in bulk
The more heating oil you buy per order, the more you’ll save on repeated delivery costs. We deliver home heating oil from 500 litres and industrial heating oil from 205-litre barrels up to 36,000 litres and more.
Remember, it’s important to invest in regular fuel tests and tank cleaning, as the more heating oil you buy, the longer it could remain in storage and the more likely it will be to degrade in quality over the lifetime of the fuel if it goes unused for long periods of time.
Monitor your usage
To avoid your heating oil consumption spiralling out of control, monitoring your usage and fine-tuning your orders could save you a lot of money on over-ordering or under-ordering and being caught out with no heating oil left in your tank.
Keep control of the thermostat
Of course, during the winter, it’s expected that you’ll have to crank up the thermostat to avoid going cold. It’s advisable to keep it at a steady and consistent temperature which will help you avoid rocketing heating bills. Once you have an idea of your usage, you can then look at ways to make it more efficient and less costly on every order.
Ensure your boiler is regularly serviced
If your boiler is old, your heating oil levels could be suffering from lack of efficiency which could be costing you far more money to heat your home or business in the long term. We suggest investing in a newer, more efficient model to avoid the cost of waste in heating oil.
Protect your heating oil storage tank
Many heating oil users are the victim of theft so it’s important to ensure your tank is secure from thieves. Locks and security lighting are good tactics to deter criminals from stealing your costly asset.
It’s also vital to make sure that your tank’s condition is secure as a leak could cost you a significant amount of money in heating bills and also in fines if oil damages the surrounding environment.
Investing in an OFTEC-registered tank will help keep your heating oil safe from contaminants and ensure it lasts longer in storage. Remember, you must still do simple checks for corrosion, cracks and discolouration to avoid large costs.
Insulation is key
Many homes lack proper insulation which means they’ll lose valuable heat and force your heating system to work overtime. This will ultimately burn more fuel which is escaping out of your home rather than heating it up.
Buy heating oil from a trusted supplier
If you’re looking to buy 2000 litres of heating oil or any other amount of heating oil for your home or business. You will want to ensure that the oil supplier is able to supply you within a reasonable amount of time, and one that is agreed to by both parties.
