Is Spring a Good Time To Replace an Oil Tank?
Posted: April 18, 2022

Spring forward with an upgraded oil tank

heating oil tanks new jerseyAs the weather begins to warm up, your heating oil tank probably won’t be on your mind much, but believe it or not, spring is actually a great time to consider replacing your fuel storage tank. Most older heating oil tanks have an anticipated lifespan of about 25 years, which means if your home was built prior to 1995, it is likely time for an upgrade. Read on to learn more about the benefits of upgrading your heating oil tank during the milder season.

Off-season prices

There are a number of reasons why upgrading your heating oil tank during the off-season is a smart choice. Many businesses and homeowners list affordability as one top factor they weigh heavily when deciding if an upgrade is right for their home. The good news for spring shoppers is that like most off-season equipment, heating oil tanks may be at their peak affordability just as the need for home heat is decreasing for the season.

Reach out to the energy experts at Fredericks Fuel to take advantage of the best heating oil tank replacement costs. We service Vernon, West Milford, Sparta, and communities throughout Sussex County and northern NJ.

Be prepared for next winter

When the snow and ice have melted and the debris of winter is cleared, it’s easy to forget just how quickly the colder months will come around again. The last thing you want is for your heating system to shut down in the middle of winter due to a problem with your outdated tank.

Flexible installation schedules

You deserve the time and attention it takes to have your oil tank installation job done right the first time, all year long – and at Fredericks Fuel, that is always our priority. Springtime affords a little more flexibility when it comes to scheduling, though, since technicians aren’t as busy. Demand for heat is obviously greatest during the colder months, or in the fall as we anticipate winter on its way. But, when that demand goes down in the spring, professionals can often devote extra time and attention.

When you heat with oil, you want to be confident that your fuel storage tank has been installed properly. Having been in business since before the advent of home heating oil, Fredericks Fuel has installed literally thousands of aboveground storage tanks and we follow strict protocols to ensure that your fuel is stored safely and that there will be no interruption fuel flow when it gets extremely cold.

Tank protection plan

Replacing your outdated fuel tank is a big decision that you’ll rely on for decades to come. Heating oil tanks nowadays have improved tremendously over tanks from 20 years ago. In fact, today’s models are virtually leak-proof. For peace of mind, Fredericks Fuel also offers a tank protection service agreement through the ProGuard program, for both underground and aboveground fuel storage tanks.

Rely on us for safe, secure tank installation year-round

All of our installation technicians have been trained in the industry-standard best practices for installing aboveground fuel tanks. We install tanks by such respected brands as Granby and Roth, so you can be confident that once your fuel tank is installed, you won’t need a replacement for many years.
