Keep Your Heating Oil Storage Tank Full!

February 28, 2020

As a discount heating oil supplier serving Essex, Middlesex, Monmouth, Union and Somerset counties, we know how important it is to keep New Jersey homeowners’ tanks full during the spring and summer. Do you know why it’s important?

Here are a few reasons why you should keep a full tank during the warmer seasons:

  • Empty space in the tank leaves room for water accumulation, which is common during the warm and humid seasons

  • Water accumulation promotes corrosion of the tank, and the development of bacteria and sediment inside the tank

  • Sediment and bacteria can make its way into the heating system, causing blockages and breakdowns

  • If a tank is left completely empty, air can also be drawn into the heating system causing further issues with the equipment and fuel lines

How can you avoid these problems? Remember to order your final fill up!

Be sure to order fuel when your tank is running low – even if you’re sure that you’re no longer going to use your heating system. One final fill up can save you from a big headache down the line!
