Running out of heating oil, a terrifying thought!

The clocks have gone back, the nights are closing in and according to the Telegraph we are facing the longest winter in 50 years. Are you prepared for the cold?

No doubt you’ve started to put the heating on already but when was the last time you checked how much heating oil you have left in your tank? Perhaps the thought of traipsing outside in your dressing gown to check your oil level fills you with dread and you long for a way to check it without leaving the warmth of your home? Well help is at hand with the Apollo Smart.


Apollo Smart not only allows heating oil users to ascertain the volume of fuel remaining in their tank, but also monitor heating costs, consumption and emissions too. It consists of a transmitter and receiver unit. The transmitter easily fits onto your tank and monitors the volume of heating oil remaining, together with fuel usage and consumption. The transmitter relays data, including estimated days until empty, wirelessly to a mains powered receiver unit, where it is displayed via an easy to read, LCD display, so you don't even need to leave your warm house to check the tank.

Every Apollo Smart benefits from USB upload technology, which allows energy consumption data to be transferred from the receiver unit to almost any PC or Mac or via the optional Apollo Smart App. The data gives heating oil users the opportunity to analyse their historical consumption data, assisting them in better understanding to control and manage heating oil usage and consumption.

Heating oil is pricey, so it can be attractive to thieves, the Apollo Smart also now incorporates as standard a fuel theft alarm giving heating oil users that added peace of mind knowing they will be alerted to any sudden level drops within their tank.

Regularly check how much oil you have left to avoid suddenly running out in cold weather - particularly on those occasions when a supplier can't get to you, such as during heavy snow or Christmas day! Easy peasy with the Apollo Smart.
