3 Telltale Signs It's Time to Replace Your Heating Oil Tank, West Haven, Connecticut

Heating oil tanks are a vital part of homes in West Haven, CT. Because of the harsh winters, you want to make sure your house will be properly and efficiently warmed when you need it the most. Before the cold weather hits again, Apple Oil suggests asking yourself three questions to ensure you’ll have the warmth you need. 

Depending on your answer to the following questions, it may be time to replace your heating oil tank: 

  • Is My Heating Oil Tank Performing As Well As It Used To? The most obvious time to replace your heating oil tank is when you notice it’s not working as efficiently as it did when you first purchased it. If your oil is taking longer to heat up than usual or you’re noticing some clogs within your heating oil tank’s pipes, it could be time for a replacement.
  • heating oil tankHow Old Is My Heating Oil Tank? As with every appliance, the life of a heating oil tank will eventually run out. On average, if you’ve done a good job of keeping your heating oil tank well-maintained over the years, you should be able to get a good 15 to 30 years out of it before you have to replace it.
  • Is There A  Lot Of Visible Damage? If you’re unsure about the age of your heating oil tank, take a good look at it. Signs of rust, wet spots, dents, or any other damage from snow, ice, or the wind on the surface are clear indications it might be time for a new heating oil tank.
