With spring in the air, we don’t blame you for forgetting about your heating oil tank. After all, the nights are a little warmer in and around Boston. If you were putting off your late winter oil delivery, you might be tempted to leave your tank levels low throughout the entire spring and summer.
That’s not a good idea. We strongly recommend that you get one final spring oil delivery before the hot season starts. Doing so will prevent some serious problems down the road!
When the temperature differs inside and outside your oil tank, condensation can form on the interior tank walls. It’s a bit like the way water gathers on a glass of iced tea during a hot day. The emptier your tank is, the more likely it is that moisture accumulates inside.
This is far from ideal. It can negatively affect your tank and heating equipment in two ways:
The best way to prevent condensation is by minimizing the air in your tank. The best way to do that is by keeping it filled.
Now is the time to take a proactive approach to prevent condensation build-up. Schedule a heating oil delivery this spring, so your tank is full throughout the warm seasons.
Then, when it’s time to turn on your heating equipment again, you’ll already be fully stocked for the cold weather!
