Heating Oil Tank Summer Maintenance

Fill It Up!

heating oil delivery new yorkBecause you live in the Hudson Valley, you are used to relying on your heating system to keep you warm and comfortable all winter. If you’re a responsible heating oil customer, you never want to get caught with an empty heating oil tank, so you vigilantly check your tank’s level and call for delivery before it gets too low. And since Economy Oil offers same-day and next-day deliveries, you never have to wait long for your delivery.

Now that summer is here and you’ve traded sweaters for tee-shirts and boots for flip-flops, you might be tempted to stop thinking about your heating oil tank and let it run down to less than you would during the winter. That’s not a good idea.

Even during the summer months, you should keep your heating oil tank full. And because Economy Oil sells our quality fuel oil at the best price in the Hudson Valley, you can rest assured that you’re not paying a penny more than you need to when you order your heating oil from us.

An Empty Tank Can Cause Problems

When your heating oil tank is allowed to get close to empty, debris can clog your oil filters. That is likely to reduce the efficiency of your heating system or even cause it to fail. Both of those scenarios will cost you more money in energy and/or repair costs.

Whenever your tank levels get low you need to worry about condensation. That’s especially true during the summer months when you’ll have hot and humid days followed by cooler nights. Conditions during the summer months can accelerate condensation buildup in your tank. Your tank is even more vulnerable to condensation if it’s aboveground, outside, or in an unshaded area. If water is allowed to build up in your tank, it can cause rust, and that rust can cause your heating system to fail. By keeping enough fuel oil in your tank, you can avoid some very costly problems. Ideally, keep your tank at least half full (though fuller is better) all summer long.
