Summer has arrived! At this time of year, when you’re focused on keeping the heat outdoors and making sure your home is cool, your heating equipment is likely the furthest thing from your mind.
What if we told you that right now, just before the 4th of July, is actually an important time to evaluate an essential component of your heating configuration?
By ensuring that your oil tank is full or close to it at the onset of the summer heat and humidity, you’re making a significant impact on how safe and secure it is on your property. Why is this so? Moist air can cause condensation inside the fuel storage tank, leading to buildup that can later corrode its structure. As a result of the corrosion, you may be faced with an unexpected need to replace or repair this expensive component of your heating system.
Plan ahead and protect your investment in your home. Before moisture in the air inside your oil tank has a chance to cause irreversible damage, schedule a fuel delivery.
- Prevent oil tank corrosion to greatly lower the risk of oil spills and property damage.
- Extend the life of your tank to avoid an unanticipated replacement in the near future.
- Take advantage of preseason fuel pricing, which is often lower than rates during the fall and winter months!
