If your heating oil tank is more than 20 years old, it’s time to start planning for when you have to replace it. You don’t want to be caught off guard by a tank failure, and you don’t want to deal with the stress, cost, or hassle that comes with it.

Before you go shopping for a new heating oil tank, there are a few things to consider.

The size of your heating oil tank

The tank’s capacity (in gallons) and dimensions (height, length, and width) need to be considered.
The tank’s capacity is usually inscribed on it. If your tank lacks this figure, use the dimensions to calculate its capacity.

A typical home heating oil tank holds 275 gallons and is either vertical (275V) or horizontal (275H). Other aboveground tank sizes include 288, 340, 420, 500, 550, 675, and 1,000 gallons.

Before you install your new heating oil tank

The most essential step is to verify the size of the place where your new heating oil tank will be installed to ensure that it will fit in that space.

When it comes to heating oil, be sure to talk about your needs now and in the future with Hometowne Energy’s heating oil professionals. If you want to add onto your house, grow your family, or move elderly parents in, you’ll be using more heating oil, so a bigger tank might be necessary.
