Understanding Oil Tanks

Oil tanks are used to store home heating oil, which is then distributed through a home’s heating system, such as a furnace or boiler.

Common types of oil tanks include aboveground (indoor or outdoor) and underground tanks.

Oil tanks can be made of steel, fiberglass, or other materials, each with their own advantages and considerations.

Oil tanks have a finite lifespan, typically 15-30 years, depending on the material and environmental factors.

Oil Tank Replacement Considerations

Signs it’s time to replace an oil tank include age, corrosion, leaks, or failed regulatory inspections.

Replacement may also be necessary if the tank needs to be relocated or upgraded to a newer, more efficient model.

Factors to consider when replacing an oil tank include the tank size, material, location, and any necessary upgrades to the heating system.

The Oil Tank Replacement Process

Tank Removal: Carefully remove the old tank, ensuring proper disposal or recycling.

Site Preparation: Inspect the installation site, level the ground, and prepare for the new tank.
