Don’t leave your heating system to the inexperienced contractor.

According to the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection, indoor oil tanks do not last for more than 30 years – and their life spans are often shorter. Most underground storage tanks will last about 10 to 20 years. How old is yours?

What’s important to remember: Old, faulty or unused heating oil tanks are a major liability for property owners. The sooner a tank is removed or replaced, the better the chances are of avoiding the expense of an environmental cleanup – which can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars, or even millions. Just a few gallons of fuel in a tank can eventually leak into the soil, which can contaminate groundwater and will have to be remediated.

Keep in mind that heating oil is still a good value overall. In fact, adjusted for inflation, the price of heating oil has stayed virtually the same since the 1950s. As you consider options for heating oil system, remember that CommTank can help make your system work for you.
