Industrial Heating Oil

Industrial Heating Oil (IHO) is designed for use in commercial boilers applications for heat generation and offers a saving when compared to using diesel to heat your business or commercial premises.

What is IHO?

Many businesses lost the entitlement to use red diesel (gas oil) for commercial heating from the 1st of April 2022 as a result of the duty changes. IHO is a drop in replacement for diesel used to generate heat in commercial boilers and provides a saving on heating bills when compared to using diesel. IHO is a fully rebated product and must only be used for heating, it is strictly prohibited for use in any vehicles, on or off-road.

It is typically used in large public buildings and commercial premises, including:

  • Hospitals
  • Schools
  • Factories
  • Hotels
  • Distilleries
  • Quarries
  • Grain dryers
