September: The Perfect Time to Replace Your Heating Oil Tank
Posted: August 24, 2018

Heating oil tank

Your aboveground heating oil tank has a maximum lifespan of about 25 years or so – which means if your New Jersey home was built in or before mid-1990s, you’re probably due – or maybe even overdue – for a replacement.

You may be thinking, “my heating oil tank looks fine…I can go a little longer before I replace it.” The problem with heating oil tanks is that looks can be deceiving: most older tanks – especially single-wall models – corrode from the inside out due to trapped moisture and sediment. That means you won’t see a heating oil tank failure coming until it’s too late – a big problem considering that remediation and replacement costs for heating oil tanks are not usually covered by your homeowner’s insurance.

Be smart: if you know your tank is nearing its silver anniversary, don’t wait to replace it – it’s not worth the risk, especially considering the affordable, double-walled heating oil tank options that Fredericks offers.

Our experts will help you choose a quality heating oil tank that’s right for your space, lifestyle, and budget from top brands like Granby and Roth, then install it the right way the first time so you have no repeat visit hassles.
