As spring arrives, your heating oil tank probably isn’t in the forefront of your mind, but believe it or not, this time of year is perfect for assessing the health of your fuel storage tank and considering whether it’s due for an upgrade. Most traditional style heating oil tanks have an expected lifespan of 25 years. That means if your home was built in the 1990s or even the early aughts, your heating oil tank could be on borrowed time. Read on to learn more about how often heating oil tanks need to be replaced, and why it makes sense to do so during a milder season.
How can you tell if your heating oil tank needs an upgrade, or if you can wait another year? With an annual heating oil tank inspection, problems in your tank can be spotted before they become worse. It also helps you plan for repairs or replacement of parts or your heating oil tank.

There are several reasons why upgrading your heating oil tank during the off-season is a wise move. Many businesses and homeowners cite affordability as a high priority when deciding if an upgrade is right for their home. The good news for spring shoppers is that like most off-season equipment, heating oil tanks may be at their peak affordability just as the need for home heat is decreasing for the season.
When the snow and ice has melted and the debris of winter is cleared, it’s easy to forget just how quickly the colder months will come around again. The last thing you want is for your heating system to shut down in the middle of winter due to a problem with your outdated tank. Springtime affords more scheduling flexibility since technicians aren’t as busy.
