Don’t Get Caught with an Empty Heating Oil Tank

How and why you should never let your oil tank run dry

heating oil delivery new yorkNovember is a wonderful month in the Hudson Valley. The fall foliage is beautiful. Holiday decorations are going up. The days are shorter, but they’re still warm enough to enjoy outdoor activities like football and hiking. This is also a good time to start paying some extra attention to your heating oil tank to make sure you don’t have a run-out this winter. As the temperatures decrease, your household’s heating oil usage is going to increase, and you don’t want to get caught without enough in the tank.

An empty heating oil tank is a problem

At all costs, you want to avoid an empty oil tank. The colder the day, the more uncomfortable you’ll be while you wait for an emergency heating oil delivery. Imagine having no heat or hot water on one of the coldest days of the winter! And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Running out of heating oil isn’t just inconvenient, there are some expensive consequences as well.

When your tank is empty, debris can clog your oil filters. That can reduce the efficiency of your heating system or even cause it to fail. Your HVAC equipment can be damaged by any sediment or impurities that get sucked into the feed line. Plus, water tends to collect in an empty tank. That water can cause rust, and that rust can cause your heating system to fail. Additionally, if your home gets cold enough, your pipes could freeze and burst, and that’s a read headache—not to mention a very pricy problem.
