Advantages of Having a Heating Oil Tank

Cost Effectiveness

Modern technology has made heating oil systems highly efficient with low emissions. Heating oil burns hotter than electricity or natural gas, allowing homeowners to heat up faster and with less fuel. This keeps utility bills lower.

Heating oil is non-explosive, and if a malfunction occurs, there will be noticeable signs, such as smoke or soot, giving you plenty of time to avoid carbon monoxide leaks.


Heating oil tanks installed by Apple Oil are strong, durable, and not likely to leak. No matter where your storage tank is hidden, it should last for decades, thanks to improvements in design and materials. For example, many contain double walls of plastic, steel, and sensors with state-of-the-art construction.

Air Quality

Today’s heating oil tanks produce air that is safe and clean to breathe. In fact, heating oil produces cleaner heat in comparison to most heating systems, leaving no soot, odors, or dirt inside your home.


As long as you hire a professional oil tank installation contractor, your heating oil tank will be environmentally friendly. With low emissions, heating oil is biodegradable and nontoxic, and it also doesn’t produce cancer-causing agents.

The heating oil experts at Apple Oil are available to install a heating oil tank before winter arrives. They can also schedule heating oil deliveries to keep you and your family warm and cozy no matter what the weather is like outside. Call (203) 934-3835, or visit the website for more details.
