Avoid Black Sludge by Filling Your Heating Oil Tank June 8, 2016

Avoid Black Sludge by Filling Your Heating Oil Tank, West Haven, Connecticut

For over 30 years, Apple Oil Co. of West Haven, CT, has offered comprehensive heating oil delivery and tank installation services to their commercial and residential customers. With year-round service that’s only a call away, it’s a good idea to start thinking about filling up your oil tank for the summer.

Are you wondering why you would need to stock up on home heating oil before the hottest season of the year? There are actually some solid advantages to being proactive. By filling up your tank before summer hits, you can prevent moisture from forming in an empty oil tank. 

heating oil tankEven if the tank is only partially empty, this negative space leaves room for condensation to develop. While moisture doesn’t cause initial harm, leaving it uninterrupted throughout the summer months will allow bacteria to grow. This bacteria will eventually develop into harmful, sludge, a slime which sticks to the walls of your heating oil tank.

Sludge will gradually begin to clog the entire tank, leading to a full-on heating system breakdown. While you might not notice major heating issues throughout the summer, the first days of cold weather can hit harshly and unexpectedly. If you don’t keep tabs on the condition of your heating oil tank as summer approaches, you could be left with some cold, sleepless nights come wintertime.

Allow yourself to enjoy the shifting seasons with peace of mind by filling your home heating oil tank now and preventing bothersome breakdowns. If you believe there are any other issues with your heating system, have Apple Oil Company perform a thorough inspection and identify any maintenance or replacement needs.
