Heating Oil Tank Installation and Removal in Southbury, Bethel, and Easton, CT

You can trust Jennings with all your heating oil tank needs

Although heating oil tanks are quite durable, they do eventually fail. When you need a new heating oil tank, Jennings is here for you.

Corrosion is the most prevalent reason for the failure of heating oil tanks.

heating oil tank services in fairfield county

Condensation develops on the bare inside walls of your empty heating oil tank, especially in the summer. By the way, filling your heating oil tank in the spring so it’s full through the summer can help prevent condensation from developing.

Because water is heavier than heating oil, it falls to the bottom of the tank and creates a great environment for sediment formation. Corrosion can result from this sediment, and ultimately cause tank failure.

Condensation can also cause the formation of heating oil sludge, which can obstruct your tank line to your home’s heating system. Sludge can not only cause your heating oil tank to malfunction, but it may also cause your heating system to break down. That can lead to big repair bills.

Keeping an eye on your heating oil tank, which means more than simply glancing occasionally at the tank gauge levels, might help you avoid the hassle and expense of a heating oil tank failure. Here’s what to look for:

  • Blistering in the paint on the underside of the tank
  • Pinhole leaks
  • Condensation remaining on the outside of the tank long after a heating oil delivery

If any of these indications appear, contact Jennings right away so that we may inspect your tank, and if needed, get started on replacement.
