An average steel heating oil tank will last anywhere from 15 to 25 years, depending on how it’s constructed – which means that if your storage tank is entering its second decade, there’s a pretty good chance it’s going to need replacing sooner than later.
The question is, what size oil tank will you need? Here are some points to consider.
If you have a newer tank, the capacity is probably listed on its nameplate; if your tank that doesn’t list its capacity, you will have to estimate based on dimensions.
Once you’ve thought about these sizing factors, you’ll have a better idea where to begin your search for a heating oil tank upgrade for your Sullivan, Orange, or Ulster County home.
