If you are ready to replace your home’s heating oil tank, remember that Roach Energy sells and installs heating oil tanks and can help you find the right one for your home.
How do you know if you need oil tank service or possibly to replace your tank? It isn’t always easy with an aboveground heating oil tank, because the signs that the tank is beginning to fail usually aren’t visible. Heating oil tanks usually fail from the inside out.
The culprit is condensation. It forms on the walls of the empty space in your tank. Eventually, the water drips down from the walls into the heating oil and sinks to the bottom of the tank. That’s when the trouble begins, as it becomes a home for sediment, which leads to corrosion.
This is why checking your heating oil tank regularly is important. You may see signs of corrosion before you end up with a leak or a tank failure. Here’s what to look for:
Our professionals will work with you to select the right tank for your home, factoring in the size of your home, how many people live there, and the ages of the people living there, as older people want their homes warmer and thus use more heating oil.
We also help you keep your oil tank working longer by offering tank protection, designed to prevent the corrosion that can lead to heating oil tank failure.
