Do you know how old your home’s heating oil tank is?
If it is 20 years old or older, or if you’re not sure how old it is, you are living on borrowed time. You don’t want to wait until it is too late and your heating oil tank fails. You could be facing tens of thousands of dollars in expenses related to cleaning up the spilled fuel, remediating any environmental damage and replacing the tank. None of this, unfortunately, is covered in most homeowners’ insurance policies.
That is why now is the time to begin planning for its replacement, and Taylor Energy is here to help.
We offer complete heating oil tank services. They start with our installation of top-quality, durable heating oil tanks from premium makers including Granby and Roth. We go above and beyond to ensure that your heating oil tank is installed according to all regulations and codes, that any required permits are obtained, that your old tank is properly disposed of, and that you are aware of any municipal or state fees for tank disposal.
Taylor Energy also offers heating oil tank insurance that can help to protect you from high replacement costs in the event of a tank failure.
Thanks to superior construction features such as coatings that help prevent corrosion, the heating oil tanks that Taylor Energy installs are a vast improvement over those of a generation ago. Some tanks are conventional single-wall tanks with strong welding on joints. We also offer double-walled tanks that give you added protection against leaks.
Most homes have a 275-gallon tank. These come in either a vertical (275V) or horizontal (275H) orientation. There are other tank sizes, some for aboveground tanks and some for underground models. Other aboveground tank sizes are 288, 340, 420, 500, 550, 675 and 1,000 gallons.
Many homeowners are opting to replace underground tanks with aboveground ones. Taylor Energy makes it easy! We provide excavation services as well as underground heating oil tank removal.
The most important thing you can do is to monitor your heating oil tank by inspecting it regularly. If you spot any of the following problems, contact Taylor Energy right away so that we can come out and do any needed heating oil tank repair:
There is something else you can do for your heating oil tank: Keep it full through the spring and summer months. Empty space in your tank during warm weather creates condensation, which can lead to the development of sediment that corrodes your tank from the inside out.
