Why Think about Your Heating Oil Tank This Summer?

It’s late June, the summer heat is on its way, and many of us have aptly erased this year’s freezing winter from memory. As far as home energy equipment goes for this time of year, you may be focused on getting your air conditioning system ready for the months ahead or even considering updating equipment that is used throughout the year before you think about your heating system. However, we’re here to inform you why now is actually an important time to evaluate an essential component of your heating configuration: your oil tank.

By making sure that your heating oil tank is full or close to it at the beginning of the summer, you are helping to protect your equipment and keep it safe. Moist air can cause condensation inside the fuel storage tank, leading to buildup that can later corrode its structure. As a result of that, you may be faced with an unexpected need to replace or repair this important – and expensive – component of your heating system. Be proactive by scheduling a fuel oil delivery early this summer before moisture in the air inside your oil tank has a chance to cause irreversible damage.

  • Prevent tank corrosion to reduce the risk of oil spills and property damage.
  • Extend the life of your tank and lower the chance of needing a replacement in the near future.
  • Bonus: Take advantage of preseason fuel pricing, which is often lower than rates during the fall and winter months.
