As the UK’s most common heating fuel for homes that are not connected to the main gas network, kerosene is an essential fuel oil. In fact, across the UK, around 1.1m households are not connected to the national gas grid, and instead depend on kerosene to heat their homes. This means that heating and hot water can be lost, if these households run out of heating oil. That’s why, here at Compass Fuel Oils, we provide a dedicated and professional barrel delivery service, including emergency kerosene barrel deliveries. So what is this service? And why should you choose us?
What is kerosene?
Kerosene is a safe and cost effective heating oil that is used in domestic properties across the UK to fuel household hot water boilers and central heating systems. This is also used for heat storage stoves such as an AGA. With a long shelf life, kerosene can be stored for a long length of time, as long as temperatures are above -39°C! This is a type of heating oil that is also more environmentally friendly than other options, producing less paraffin fumes.
What is our barrel delivery service?
Here at Compass Fuel Oils, we deliver barrels of fuel oil anywhere in the UK. Our barrels are 45 gallon drums, which means that they are able to store 205 litres each. As a result, they are perfect for homes and domestic properties, where a comparatively small amount of fuel is necessary. They are also made from high quality welded steel to ensure maximum safety and security for all our clients.
But we don’t just supply the barrels. We can also deliver a full range of necessary kit, including:
- Cast Iron Rotary Hand Pumps
- PVC Fuel Hose
