Two Crucial Summer Oil Tank Safety Must-Knows

Crack open a cold drink and crank up the air conditioning because summer is in full blast here in Mt. Sinai! During the summer season, most homeowners tend to think about their seasonal to-do lists, like cleaning the pool, scheduling an air conditioner tune-up, and refinishing the deck. But did you know that your heating oil storage tank also needs some important summer attention? We’ve provided a few important must-knows for taking care of your heating oil tank during the summer so that it can take care of you during the winter.

Must-Know #1:

Keeping your oil tank full during the summer is essential to its longevity. If you leave too much space for air at the top of your oil tank, condensation will build on the tank walls. Months of inactivity will cause this condensation to eat away at and corrode the metal, leaving your tank weaker the next time you fill it. The scary part about tank corrosion is that it happens inside your tank, invisible to the naked eye, and you might not know about the damage until it’s too late.

You can solve this issue by filling up your tank during the summer. A full oil tank is a happy oil tank, and there won’t be room for condensation and rusting due to excess water collection.
