The Northern Ireland Housing Executive has this week warned the public about the danger of using contaminated oil in their home heating systems. A spokesperson from the Housing Executive has warned of the potential damages from using contaminated oil,  “We have seen a worrying increase in the use of contaminated oil in our properties which can cause serious damage to heating systems. At a time of great pressures on our budgets, we are using funds to repair this damage that could otherwise be invested in improving or maintaining our homes.” “We would advise our tenants and indeed any householder to be wary of home heating oil being sold door to door and to purchase their oil from established reputable suppliers. Pigments from some plastic drums containing the heating oil have the potential to damage the fuel pumps on the oil fired boilers.” The Housing Executive has warned that although the oil is sold as home heating oil, it contains contaminants that can be very damaging as well as very expensive for the home owner or tenant using the heating system.
