But it’s not all petrol-heads and burning rubber. RUBiS was able once again to support the Guernsey Air Display, which is not just a great event for aviation enthusiasts, it has real community value and provides thrilling entertainment as well.


In addition to helping local events and organisations, RUBiS is at the forefront of finding innovative solutions to keep the wheels of industry turning. A good example of this is Pimata, the brainchild of Kerwin Mohun who wanted to bring the flavours of his native Mauritian cooking to Jersey, but needed a unique kind of oil to heat the specialist cooking kettles needed in his product. We were able to source the fuel he required and guarantee him a supply for the future to give him the confidence he needed to get his business up and running.

Top Tips on: Getting the best from your heating


Oil fired heating is one of the most cost effective ways to keep your home warm, but there are a number of things you can do to make sure you are getting the best from your system.


Here are some tips to give your heating the greatest chance of working efficiently:


• Make sure your roof space is properly insulated – most heat is lost through the roof and walls of your property.


• Check that your pipes are lagged and consider an insulating blanket for your hot water cylinder.


• If you have an open fire, when you are not using it close the flue to prevent heat escaping through the chimney.


• Move furniture away from radiators if possible to allow them to work as efficiently as possible.


There are also simple steps you can take to ensure your heating system is operating at its maximum potential:


and stress. Our RUBiS Card loyalty scheme ofl


• Have your boiler serviced by a qualified engineer because it has been estimated that an unserviced boiler can operate at temperatures of up to 80 or 90 degrees. That’s totally unnecessary for most domestic systems: once it has been properly serviced it can run at a lower temperature but for slightly longer and deliver the same amount of warmth;


• Make sure your thermostat is working properly and then turn it down – reducing the setting by one degree can deliver up to 10% savings on your annual fuel bill;


• Go around the house and bleed all of the air out of your radiators. Over time air gets into the system and this stops the radiators working efficiently.


If you take these measures combined they can have a significant impact on both the warmth you enjoy as well as the amount you spend.
