State subsidies for heating oil: up to 2000 euros per household!

As part of the massive cost explosions in the energy sector, the government has also announced subsidy options for heating oil and pellets. However, this does not happen automatically, but must be done by submitting an application. It is currently said that aid of up to 2000 euros can then be paid out per household. Anyone who can prove with an invoice that the price has at least doubled compared to the previous year’s purchase is eligible for a subsidy. However, there is no money from the state if the increase in heating costs compared to the previous year is less than 100 euros.
The application must be submitted to the appropriate authority at federal state level. In the case of a tenancy, the affidavit on the correctness of the fuel bill is submitted by the tenant, to whom the discharge must also be passed on. The federal government is planning a total of 1.8 billion euros for this relief measure.

Which type of heating oil is the best?

In addition to the older standard oil, there are now also low-sulphur heating oils as well as bio or premium variants. Although higher-quality oils can deviate from the average prices and thus put a greater strain on the wallet in the short term, they can have a positive effect on the service life of the heating system in the long term. If your heating system has a green cap, you should only use low-sulphur heating oils anyway. However, if you want to switch to Bio or Premium, you are advised to only do this in consultation with a heating professional or the manufacturer of the system.

“How does Germany heat up?” Heating oil consumption in the Federal Republic and in Baden-Württemberg

The reason for the fluctuating prices lies apart from economic-political developments and the stock market events in the locally different consumption. According to the study by the Federal Association of Energy and Water Industries (BDEW) “How does Germany heat?” (2019), less than 100,000 residential buildings in Saxony-Anhalt and the three city states are heated with oil, whereas in Bavaria, North Rhine-Westphalia and Baden-Württemberg is more than a million.The age of the heating systems for consumption also plays a role, which, particularly in the south of the state, are often older than 25. So it is hardly surprising that with such different demand the price development is affected – and that can be very expensive for many. However, if you prepare well for your heating oil order and always keep an eye on the prices, you can save a lot!
In the Federal Republic of Germany, the proportion in the BDEW study for oil (central heating, oil stoves) in residential buildings is 30.4%. This means that a total of 5.8 million residential buildings in Germany have to be supplied with heating oil. Baden-Wuerttemberg With one million residential buildings heated with oil and a share of 41.8%, it is one of the largest consumers of heating oil in the republic.

So you can save regardless of the price of oil

1. Avoid emergency orders: If you wait too long to order, you will either end up in the cold at some point or will no longer have the opportunity to buy at a good price. Therefore, order in good time so that you can observe the fluctuations and decide to buy on a day when the price is cheap.
2. Cooperate with family, neighbors and acquaintances: When ordering heating oil, it is not just the daily price development per liter that is important, but also the quantity that you buy! Talk to neighbors, family members and acquaintances about whether they might want to join forces with you for a collective order. Everyone involved can only benefit from this!
3. Follow the heating oil market all year round: A look into the past shows that particularly low prices cannot be traced back to a specific time of year. In addition to seasonal consumption, global political and global economic developments play a major role. Therefore, check the prices at regular intervals throughout the year so that you don’t miss the right period.
4. Save in the long term through modernization: Compared to old models, modern oil condensing boilers can bring about annual savings in the double-digit percentage range. Switching to other resources also achieves even higher savings yields and is also subsidized by the state.
