Old heating oil tank
Posted: October 14, 2016
Older-generation heating tanks have a maximum lifespan of about 30 years – which means if your home was built in or before 1990, you’re probably due – or maybe even overdue – for a replacement.
Your heating oil tank may look OK, but looks can be deceiving: just because there are no visible leaks or rust doesn’t mean you’re in the clear. The problem is that heating oil tanks usually corrode from the inside out due to trapped moisture and sediment in the tank. That means a tank can fail without leaking first, leaving you with a big and expensive remediation problem to deal with.
The bottom line: If you already know your tank needs to be replaced, don’t wait – it’s simply not worth the risk, especially considering the affordable, leak-proof, eco-friendly tank options that Swezey Fuel offers. Our experts will install your new heating oil tank and remove your old one – all in compliance with EPA and local code standards.
