Heating Oil

 

Heating Oil

Around four million households in the UK are not connected to the national gas grid and rely on heating oil, liquid petroleum gas (LPG), electricity or renewable sources to heat their homes. The key difference between energy from the grid and heating oil (as well as LPG) is that heating oil is delivered by road and stored in a tank.

Kerosene – also known as 28 second or heating oil. This is a lighter and cleaner fuel and the most common type used in homes in the UK.
