Time to start thinking about the cost of your heating!

Sadly the last days of Summer are with us and cooler days and nights are just around the corner so it’s a good time to start thinking about the cost of heating.

Last month our members saved £58.80 per 1000 litres against the average market price, paying just 55.75 pence per litre of heating oil. How did your supplier compare?

Our bulk LPG members are saving between £150 and £260 per annum and we are also able to offer great savings and free delivery on LPG cylinders.

If you would like to find out more about reducing the cost of your heating oil or making a saving on your LPG please email or call Sarah on 01789 472611.
