Quality Oil Tanks Installation, Removal and Maintenance Services in NYC, Long Island & Suffolk County
Think about how comfortable your heating system keeps you throughout the bitter New York City winters. If you have an oil burner, then your heating oil storage tank plays a huge role in maintaining a cozy environment. Oil tanks, however, don’t last forever. If your oil tank is due for replacement, turn to NY Boiler & Air Conditioning Repair for a quality replacement and installation.
Signs You Need an Oil Tank Replacement
Your home’s heating oil tank should last 15 to 30 years or more with routine maintenance. However, oil tanks don’t always show their age. Instead, much of the corrosion happens internally. That’s why you should consider having your tank professionally inspected.
There are several external clues that your tank is due for replacement. Some of the most common signs you need a new oil tank include:
- Increased oil consumption: If it seems like you're burning through oil faster than before, have your heating system inspected. Either an inefficient or malfunctioning furnace is at fault or the tank is leaking. In some cases, leaks will be obvious, such as a puddle on the floor (or foundation if it’s located outside.) If it’s a serious leak, your home may need to be vacated while a team decontaminates the space. In extreme cases, you may even be subject to a fine for polluting the environment.
- Rust on the outside of the tank: Rust on the outside of the unit is cause for concern because it’s not going to get any better. Storage tanks outside are particularly prone to rust and corrosion.
- Your oil tank is over 20 years old: The average lifespan of an oil tank is 20 years. If yours has been in service for more than two decades, don’t wait for it to fail before replacing it.
Benefits of Installing a New Heating Oil Tank
When you install a new storage tank, you’ll have peace of mind that this vital component of your heating system will operate reliably for years to come. When you install a new oil tank, you’ll:
- Prevent catastrophic tank failure
- Reduce the risk of needing an emergency heating service
- Safeguard your comfort and health
- Protect the environment
Also, having a properly installed oil tank will ensure that it meets code. Many companies have a “no whistle, no fill policy.” That means if your oil tank’s vent alarm isn’t operating, then the technician legally cannot refill your tank. This is for your safety because without a functioning vent alarm, the technician runs the risk of overfilling the tank, spilling oil all over.
