Follow these tips to take care of your heating oil tank this summer!
During summertime, your heating oil system may not be the first thing that comes to mind. A heating oil tank is essential to ensure the temperature in your home is warm and comfortable. To extend your tank’s lifespan, we highly recommend following these quick and easy maintenance tips this summer:
1. Refill Your Tank
Warm temperatures and humidity can cause moisture to build up in your heating oil tank.
This can degrade the metal inside your tank, causing corrosion. We recommend filling up your tank this summer to eliminate any excess room for moisture and rust to form. Being proactive will save you the risk of having to repair or replace your tank!
2. Inspect Your Tank’s Surface
We recommend inspecting the surface of your heating oil tank. If you notice any signs of damage such as dents, cracks, rust or oil stains, you should contact a professional. Give our team a call! We offer 24-hour emergency service.
3. Be Aware of Leaks
Leaks in your tank aren’t always obvious to the eye. We recommend inspecting your tank’s vent lines, fittings, and valves periodically. If left unresolved, it can cause your tank to corrode. If you think your tank has a leak it’s important to call a professional for an inspection right away.
4. Inspect the Tank Legs
You’ll also want to ensure that your tank legs are stable. If you notice your tank wobbling, we recommend placing your tank on top of a level concrete pad.
