When Should I Replace My Heating Oil Tank?

Heating oil tank

Most older steel-built heating oil tank models have a maximum lifespan of about 30 years – which means if your home was built in or before 1990, you’re probably due – or maybe even overdue – for a new tank.

You might think your tank is in good shape if it hasn’t leaked or shown any obvious signs of rust, but don’t be fooled: steel heating oil tanks usually corrode from the inside out due to trapped moisture and sediment. That means a tank can fail without warning, leaving you with a costly cleanup headache on your hands.

The bottom line: if you know your tank is ready to be replaced, don’t wait – it’s simply not worth the risk, especially considering the affordable, leak-proof, eco-friendly Roth tank options that Bottini offers.
