The Importance of Replacing Your Oil Tank
Oil tanks tend to have a lifespan of 15 to 20 years. If you have an older oil tank that is reaching its life expectancy, it’s crucial to have the appliance inspected or replaced. If you notice moisture or condensation on the base of your oil tank or a leak or spill, you may be ready for a repair. Additionally, if you count on your oil tank to heat your property, you will need to have it repaired before the winter arrives.
Who Should Replace Your Oil Tank?
Your oil tank should only be replaced by a highly trained and certified professional like the team at Fireweed Home Comfort. Dealing with oil tanks is a serious business, and you can’t afford to trust just anyone. A shoddy installation can lead to premature wear, leaks, corrosion, and breakdowns that will cost you more money into the future.
Another important thing to note is that you should always replace your oil tank with a new model. Rebuilt or refurbished models may be cheaper, but they can be dangerous.

Oil Tank Safety Policies
Insurance policies vary by company and may require domestic oil tanks be replaced after 10 or 15 years, even though they last longer. Oil tanks in our cold and wet climate are susceptible to rust, condensation, sludge, and contaminants that cause damage.
Since there is no hard answer on what age a tank should be replaced, it is important not to wait until your tank is over 10 years old to have it checked for potential problems. It is recommended to have your heating equipment inspected annually by a qualified technician. This is the only way to ensure your tank, oil lines, filters, and equipment are free of major corrosion or leaks. Fireweed Home Comfort provides peace of mind knowing your equipment is working safely and soundly.
One of our expert technicians will also be pleased to inspect your oil tank and let you know what kind of shape it is in. And if you do need replacement, we can discuss all the best possible options you will have available.
Make sure your property is safe and sound with a risk-free assessment from Fireweed Home Comfort.
