Heating Oil Tank Safety

Heating oil season is here and we want to be sure you are prepared for the cold months ahead. Heating oil, commonly known as Fuel Oil No. 2, is used to heat 7.7 million American homes each year, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. It’s extremely reliable, maintainable and widely available. When installing or using heating oil, our 275 Gallon UL80 certified tanks are a must for any home or business. Their aboveground steel construction allows them to be versatile for any type of installation, whether it be in a home basement or outside. Staying safe and understanding your tank system is essential in maintaining a long life span for your tank.

  • Inspect your tank monthly for leaks. Look at all sections of the tank including the vent pipe, fill, supply and return lines for signs of corrosion or wet surfaces.
  • Vent pipe is crucial for relief of the tank. Be sure no obstruction exists in the pipe. A small whistle or air leak noise is an indicator the pipe is working correctly. Vent whistles are installed on the entry of the tank to aid in this check.
  • Fill pipe should be closed and locked, so small critters or foreign debris cannot enter the tank.
  • Tank valve and Fuel line at bottom of the tank shows no signs of leakage or corroded parts. Be sure line is not bent or twisted.
  • Tank is stable and supported, with a 1/4″ tilt forward towards fuel line. This will ensure tank does not fall over and will feed fuel efficiently.
  • Add treatment to your fuel to help moisture control and to give additional additives for fuel stability over the summer months.
  • Change your heating burner filter once a year, for optimal furnace efficiency.
  • If you find signs of corrosion, wet surfaces or have a leak, contact your nearest Oil tank distributor or HVAC service immediately. A leaky tank can be costly in cleanup charges and repairs.
