As the spring approaches, many home and business owners often assume they don’t need to worry about having heating oil again until the fall. However, there are a variety of reasons to keep your oil tank full even in the spring. Here’s why you should get deliveries year-round.
3 Reasons to Get Heating Oil Deliveries in the Spring
1. Unpredictable Weather
Even in the spring, Connecticut weather can be unpredictable. While it may be warm one week, temperatures could plummet the next. Therefore, it’s important to have adequate levels of heating oil to warm your commercial or residential property; you’ll ensure everyone’s safety and comfort.
2. Hot Water
If you use oil to heat your home’s water, you’ll still need deliveries in the spring. In addition to avoiding ice cold showers, uninterrupted access to hot water is critical for maintaining good health and hygiene during tasks like preparing food, doing laundry, and washing dishes. However, many homeowners find that each spring delivery lasts longer than those received in winter since there’s no need for fuel to heat the home 24/7.
3. Tank Damage
When a heating oil tank is empty, condensation forms and settles at the bottom of the tank. As the microorganisms in the water die, sediment begins to accumulate, which can cause clogs in your fuel line and burner nozzle. As a result, the system will become inefficient and, therefore, more expensive to operate. Sediment can also lead to corrosion and premature rusting on your tank that can require costly repairs or even a total replacement to restore proper safety and efficiency.
