You can reduce your yearly heating costs by joining an oil buying club. These are clubs where consumers group together and purchase their oil in bulk. Due to economies of scale groups can negotiate a lower price per litre than what they would get if they were ordering their oil by themselves. You can visit the Northern Ireland Housing Executive Website to learn more about oil buying clubs.
If your heating is not working, do the following:
A leak can happen for a number of reasons for e.g. corrosion which causes the material to wear and a pin hole to form causing a leak. If this happens we recommend turning off the radiator or the water supply to stop the flow of water. We then recommend using a container and perhaps some towels to collect the leaking water to prevent further damage to your property. Then give The Belfast Plumber a call and arrange for us to come and fix the problem.
In Northern Ireland 70% of homes are heating with oil systems, with Gas being supplied in Belfast and the surrounding areas by Phoenix Natural Gas. With the Central Heating bill being one of the main expenditures of a household or business its important that you pick the right central heating system that is right for your home or business.
If you are already set up with an oil heating system, then it may not be worth the cost of removing your existing oil heating system to replace it with a new gas heating system or other available systems. We do encourage you to shop around and look for an energy efficient oil boiler as this can greatly reduce your yearly cost.
A gas fired central heating system is usually the cheapest option to heat your home. And costs can be further reduced by choosing an energy efficient boiler. If you are unsure whether gas is available in your area, you can check here.
Another popular method of heating your home is using a biomass heating system where you use a wood burner that is connected to the water supply in your home. This are great to use in conjunction with an oil or gas system.
If you are conscious of the environment there are a variety of solar heating systems available on the market that can heat your home. Often the government will provide some financial assistance towards this which you can find out more here.
In short, if you are building a new home or are renovating your home it is worth looking into whether you can access the local gas supply given that gas systems can be the most cost efficient over the long term. However given that most households and businesses in Northern Ireland will have an oil heating system we recommend sticking with this. Please be sure to shop around for an efficient boiler.
