5 Reasons to Protect Your MA Oil Tank with a Spring or Summer Fill

As a homeowner in Massachusetts, you rely on your heating system and oil tank to keep you warm and cozy all winter long. However, once the weather changes, many people assume they don’t need to worry about ordering oil since they have turned off the heat. The truth is spring or summer is the perfect time to fill up your oil tank to protect your equipment, keep you safe, and potentially save you money. Keep reading Albert Culver’s blog to learn why you may want to order oil in the “off” season.

Top Reasons to Fill Up Your Oil Tank in the Spring & Summer in MA:

Reduce the Chance of Warm-Weather Damage

Leaving an oil tank near empty during the warm-weather months increases the chances of tank damage. Warm weather can cause oil tanks to collect internal condensation, leading to corrosion inside the tank. This can be a major safety concern because the damage isn’t visible, and by the time the tank corrodes enough to be visible, it can be too late. Keeping your oil tank full year-round is a simple way to decrease the risk of this type of damage.

Avoid the Risk of Increased Demand Leading to Increased Cost

When demand goes up, so do prices. If you want to fill your tank toward the end of summer or the beginning of the heating season, you will be filling it up at the same time as everyone else is. Avoid these potential oil price spikes by ordering a fill-up in spring or early summer.

Weather in MA Can Be Unpredictable

Spring and summer weather in Massachusetts can be unpredictable; there is always a chance of a cold spell. Give yourself peace of mind and the ability to turn on your heat in the event of an unexpected drop in temperatures.

There’s No Risk to Ordering Now

You will have to fill your tank eventually, so you have nothing to lose by filling it now. In fact, your future self will thank you for taking something off their to-do list and for doing what you can do now to prolong the life of your oil tank!
