Industrial Heating Oil Delivered to Businesses and Commercial Buildings Across the UK

Fuelling your commercial boilers isn’t cheap. If you use red diesel (gas oil) in heating applications, you could be missing out on significant savings. Our industrial heating oil (IHO) is a cost-effective, drop-in alternative to red diesel, made specifically for use in commercial boilers, dryers and heaters. There’s no need to faff around emptying your tanks of red diesel – you can just add our unique IHO fuel to your existing commercial heating oil stocks.

What is industrial heating oil?

Industrial heating oil is specifically intended for use in commercial boiler applications for heat generation. It typically finds application in large public buildings and commercial premises, including:

Grain dryers.

Our aim was to create a product that’s exactly the same as gas oil in terms of its physical properties whilst being a more efficient option of heating oil. We managed that with Industrial Heating Oil and as such Crown’s IHO is the perfect alternative to using gas oil to heat your business whilst making significant savings.

20% of our red diesel customers made the switch to IHO in 2018 and are already reaping the benefits

Crown Oil’s IHO is a fully rebated product (nil excise duty), meaning it is strictly prohibited for use in both on and off-road vehicles or in any static or mobile engines.

Wherever you are in the UK, our vast network of fuel depots ensures you have a commercial heating oil supplier near you and we’ll always be able to reach you quickly. To place an IHO order, call 0330 123 1444 today.
