If your oil tank is more than 30 years old, it’s a good idea to replace it.
While it’s true that oil tanks last many years, they eventually give out. Life spans vary depending on the humidity, the thickness of the steel and more.
Today’s oil tanks are light-years ahead of old models. The new generation of aboveground tanks feature:
Double-wall construction that includes an outer tank of corrosion-resistant galvanized steel
New aboveground tanks also can generally fit in small or unusually-shaped spaces.
Today’s tanks provide peace of mind and convenience — in addition to all the other benefits of heating your home with oil!
