Do I Need to Replace My Heating Oil Tank?

replace heating oil tank

If you have a previous-generation heating oil tank, it probably has a maximum lifespan of about 30 years – which means if your home was built in the mid- to late-1980s, you’re probably overdue for a replacement.

It’s important to realize that even if your heating oil tank is not displaying telltale signs of corrosion – that is, there are no visible leaks or rust – it doesn’t mean it gets a clean bill of health. Heating oil tanks typically corrode from the inside out due to moisture and sediment that gets trapped inside the tank over the years.

While a tank usually leaks before failing, occasionally a failure releases a lot of oil without warning. If that happens, you could find yourself in the middle of a costly and difficult remediation.

If you already know your tank needs to be replaced, don’t wait – it’s simply not worth the risk, especially considering the leak-free, eco-friendly tank options Jennings Oil offers. We’ll remove your old tank cleanly and safely in compliance with all local and regional codes and replace it with a new model that will last for decades.
