This month marks the beginning of winter. However, chances are you’ve already turned up the thermostat in your North Shore area home to get comfortable. And you’ll find yourself relying even more on your heating system to keep you warm and comfortable all winter long. However, keeping your home warm enough isn’t just about comfort, it’s also about health and safety. Having no heat on an extremely cold day is dangerous and could lead to expensive problems like frozen or burst pipes.
Especially this season, it’s important to know at least the basics about your heating oil system and keep an eye on your heating oil tank. So Lombardi Oil & Gas is here to answer some frequently asked questions about heating oil tanks.
Heating Oil tanks come in a variety of sizes. Which is right for your home will depend on your family’s needs and your budget. Here’s an overview of the most common residential heating oil tank sizes:
You never want to let your heating oil tank get close to empty. When that happens, debris can clog your oil filters. That can reduce the efficiency of your heating system or cause it to fail. So by keeping enough oil in your tank, you can avoid some very costly problems as well as a no-heat emergency.
Especially if you haven’t signed up for Lombardi Energy’s Automatic Delivery service, keeping an eye on your heating oil level is very important. And you’ll need to check your gauge with more frequency as it gets colder, because your heating system will be using more and more heating oil to keep you and your family warm.
