If you’ve recently powered down your oil-fired furnace or boiler for the season, it’s a good idea to give your oil tank a check.
A heating oil tank’s lifespan is between 15 and 30 years. Because of this longevity, there’s a decent chance that you’ve never had to replace one before may not know what to look for. It can be even more challenging because most deterioration occurs inside the tank, where you can’t see.
Never fear — the professionals at Homestead Comfort can help you assess your tank’s condition and, if necessary, arrange for a replacement.
It’s not always easy to tell if your oil tank needs to be replaced. Here are some telltale signs that it might be nearing retirement:
