Oil Tank Repair

Oil tanks need very little maintenance during their expected twenty year lifetime. We recommend an annual tune-up for oil-fired heating equipment and as part of this work our technicians will replace the filter on your oil line. This will keep your burner free from any solids that may build up in the bottom of the tank. Our Vermont oil tank technicians will also inspect your tank every three years as required by the new Vermont regulations and check for problems indicated by:

  • Oil spots under the tank
  • Bent or buckled tank legs
  • Dark spots which may indicate oil migrating to the outside of the tank

You can help extend the life of your oil or kerosene tank - especially if it is an outside tank - by keeping the tank full during the summer months. This reduces condensation and water build-up, one of the main contributors to oil tank corrosion.

  • New Boiler More Efficient

    For years our old boiler was noisy and it was turning off and on far too often. I think it might have been held together by duct tape, at least it looked that way.
