Published:  21 February, 2014

OFTEC and the Federation of Petroleum Suppliers have launched a new-look Oilsave website, offering impartial information and advice to help people get the best from their oil heating systems.

Malcolm Farrow (pictured), marketing and communications manager at OFTEC, said: "With rising energy prices and a general pressure on household bills, we want to ensure oil consumers are well equipped to make the best choices for both their pockets and peace of mind.

"Oilsave is a great resource and we will be promoting the website at a grass-roots level through our network of OFTEC registered technicians, who consumers can trust as a source of reliable advice and information."

Mark Askew, chief executive of FPS, added: "In contrast to gas and electricity users who have experienced average price rises of 14% and 16.5% respectively over the past three years, oil consumers are enjoying prices 5% lower than 2011 levels.

"Oilsave provides all the information they 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."

The Oilsave website also includes information to help oil consumers take advantage of the government's upcoming Renewable Heat Incentive scheme, demonstrating how oil can be combined with renewable solutions such as heat pumps or solar to qualify for payments.
