3 Heating Oil Tank Safety Tips, Forked River, New Jersey

Heating oil tanks are reliable HVAC components, but even they require occasional maintenance to keep them running properly and minimize safety hazards. ADE Heating and Cooling in Forked River, NJ, offers a variety of HVAC services, including heating repair. Below, they share what you need to know to keep you and your family safe and warm this winter. 

3 Maintenance Tips for Your Oil Tank 

1. Inspect Regularly for Leaks 

Unlike other heating materials, oil isn’t flammable to open flames, but leaks can still be hazardous to the health of those in your home and the surrounding environment. Check all your tank’s components, including the fuel delivery and vent lines, valves, supply and return lines, and the tank itself. Note any evidence of oil accumulation or rust and report it immediately to a licensed heating repair technician. 

2. Check for Damage

When inspecting your heating oil tank, look for dings and dents, as well as rust, regardless of whether it’s located indoors or out. Another common oil tank issue is when the ground beneath a tank becomes unstable, so check for signs of your tank tilting or settling into the earth. 

​​​​​​​3. Invest in Preventative Maintenance

Avoid heating repairs by implementing a regular program of preventative maintenance. Have a technician visit your home periodically to make minor adjustments to your tank or switch out failing components. This service will help you avoid heating interruptions and improve efficiency. 

Having to call someone for emergency heating repairs in the height of winter can be frustrating, but the tips above will help you maintain your tank.
