In a bid to help Great Britain’s one million oil-fired households save money and become more fuel efficient, OFTEC and the Federation of Petroleum Suppliers (FPS) have launched a new look Oilsave website offering impartial information and advice to help people get the best from their oil heating systems.

Many OFTEC registered technicians and FPS members are already putting their weight behind Oilsave and are actively promoting the site’s advice and information which includes:

• Advice on improving energy efficiency

• Buying heating oil at the lowest price

• The benefits of combining oil with renewable heating

• An easy to understand guide to heating alternatives

• The Renewable Heat Incentive

A free downloadable guide is available at

Taking advantage of lower oil prices

“We want to ensure oil consumers are well-equipped to make the best choices for both their pockets and peace of mind, given rising energy prices and a general pressure on household bills,” explained Malcolm Farrow, OFTEC marketing and communications manager.

“Oilsave is a great resource. Trusted as a source of reliable advice and information, our network of OFTEC registered technicians are actively promoting the Oilsave website at grass roots level.”

“Oil consumers are enjoying prices 5% lower than 2011 levels,” said Mark Askew, FPS chief executive. “This is in contrast to gas and electricity users who have experienced average price rises of 14% and 16.5% respectively over the past three years.

“Oilsave provides all the information oil consumers need to further maximise fuel cost savings including tips on buying fuel, guidelines for buying groups and a list of FPS approved suppliers who follow the FPS Code of Practice,” added Mark.
