The most important part of maintaining an oil tank is the inspection. The mechanics will inspect for impurities in order to maintain the safety and integrity of your tank, as well as make sure it is clean enough to store fuel without contamination or damage. It is more common to have an oil tank at home than a gas one, so the use of crude petroleum in homes for heating will never be as efficient. There are many things to consider when installing a home oil tank. For instance, the temperature of your climate determines which type you need or if you even want one at all.
The danger of an oil tank
Hidden underground oil tanks can be a significant financial liability when buying a home. Even if no signs point to the home ever having had an underground oil tank, a tank sweep of the property is recommended, especially in older homes. For minimal cost, an oil tank sweep can potentially save thousands upon thousands of dollars in soil clean-up if a previously undisclosed heating oil tank is discovered during the sweep.
Many homeowners don’t know that there is more than just heating efficiency in their homes. They could be making better use of an installed oil tank- it also provides hot water for showers and other services as well!
