Taking Care of Your Tank during the Spring and Summer

Warm weather is approaching more quickly than ever! As temperatures continue to rise consistently, and you turn your Bioheat® fuel furnace or boiler off for the summer, it’s important to keep your fuel storage tank in mind throughout the year. A well-maintained heating oil tank is important for keeping your heating system working properly. Below are some tips we have for taking care of your Bioheat® fuel oil storage tank during the warmer months. Following these suggestions are a great way to keep your fuel tank and home heating system protected, so it can continue to operate normally for many winters to come in Western Massachusetts or Northern Connecticut!

Top Tips for Protecting Your Fuel Tank Before Spring & Summer

Fill up Your Bioheat® Fuel Tank to Keep It Safe through All Weather

Filling your Bioheat® fuel tank is the best way to prevent damage during the summer. A full tank has less space for harmful moisture and condensation to collect through the months the tanks are less used. Filling your oil tank also reduces the risk of leaks and property damage. Lastly, you can potentially save with off-season prices, and oil’s long shelf life means that it will last long into the fall and winter when you need to start using it again for your heat and hot water.

Reduce Your Risk of a Bioheat® Fuel Storage Tank Malfunction

One of the best ways to make sure your tank is in good condition is to regularly inspect it for cracks and other visible damage. Visually inspect the whole tank but pay special attention to the lower half of the tank as any leaks that begin here need to be addressed quickly. As spring brings warmer temperatures, your unfilled tank will draw moisture from the atmosphere, which will form as condensation inside your tank. If liquid is allowed to gather, it may mix with air and contribute to internal corrosion. This in turn can cause damage, necessitating repairs or even full replacement of your tank if permitted to sit for an extended period.

Get a Heating System Tune-Up for a Variety of Benefits

You get your car and teeth inspected regularly—why not your home heating system? Just one annual tune-up will help technicians inspect your tank while they are servicing your Bioheat® fuel heating system. During our precision annual heating system tune-up, a professional PayLessForOil.com technician will always inspect your Bioheat® fuel tank as part of this service to see any signs of potential damage. Plus, small issues caught early are much more affordable to repair than large issues left unattended.
