275 Gallon Oil Tank Installation Project In Manchester NH

manchester oil tank installation

After having a long and important conversation with the Hamel family in their Manchester NH home, Townsend Energy learned that they were in desperate need of a new oil tank and other related parts.

Their current oil tank, unfortunately, is leaking oil. This is a problem that cannot be ignored. Not only is it dangerous for their home and environment, but it’s also incredibly costly to receive oil deliveries, and have a portion of the contents become useless because it leaks out of the tank.

Townsend Energy focuses on providing its customers with energy-efficient products every step of the way. The boilers, furnaces, heating oil tanks, and other parts are always made using the latest most advanced technology and they’re always energy-efficient. This will help the Hamel family live greener while saving them money over the long term.

Steel Residential Oil Tank Expectations & Replacement Warning Signs

As far as expectations are concerned, the average residential steel oil tank should last between 15 to 20 years. Oddly enough, the average family tends to own a home for 13 years at the median, so you’ll likely only replace your oil tank once during the duration of owning your current home.

If for some reason you believe that your oil tank needs replacing, please contact Townsend Energy and let one of our expert technicians make this assessment for you.

As a homeowner, it’s necessary to look for certain signs that your steel residential oil tank needs to be replaced. Our friends the Hamels recognized one major sign and decided that it was time for a Manchester oil tank installation.

On the other hand, something like an oil leak might not be blatantly obvious. Customers must focus on other potential problem areas as well. We’ll now go over some of the most important signs to look for to determine if your oil tank needs service or a replacement:

Dents and Rust

Are you beginning to notice rust on your steel oil tank? Are dent marks suddenly beginning to spring up seemingly out of nowhere?

Unfortunately, this shouldn’t be happening. So, if you do notice unexpected rust or dents on your oil tank, this could be the beginning signs that there is a serious and severe problem. Your oil tank could be telling you that it’s about to break down or spring a leak.

Ultimately, visible corrosion and indentations mean that something is definitely wrong with your oil tank. These problems will eventually disrupt its operation, so a steel tank in this condition definitely needs replacing before a more severe problem occurs.

Unexpected Wet Spots

Everyone should know that unexpected wet spots aren’t a normal occurrence or an anticipated presence. In fact, if you notice the area beneath the oil tank beginning to develop wet marks, or if wet marks are forming on the surface of the tank, this is a sure sign that there is a serious problem developing.

It may not be a major problem now, but it’s a beginning sign that an issue is on the verge of occurring. In this case, you should contact an expert HVAC team like Townsend Energy to diagnose the problem and provide a valid and cost-effective solution.

Clogged Vent Pipes

This warning sign is very serious and requires immediate attention. If you suddenly begin to develop clogged vent pipes, an expert technician should visit your home to thoroughly clean them on your behalf.

Why do vent pipes suddenly become clogged? It could be a number of different things, but the most common problems are wintry elements and infestations. This uncleanliness could lead to an inefficient oil tank system, which means potentially burning fuel inefficiently and spending a lot more money to heat your home during the cold wintry months in Manchester NH.


3 Common Problems with 12 Gauge Steel Residential Oil Tanks

  • Inefficient Oil Usage – unfortunately, most homeowners learn that they are inefficiently using their oil because they ultimately discover a leak. To prevent wasting precious heating oil and your hard-earned money, you should always have an expert technician check for leaks and other problems during their inspection. Townsend Energy is ready and willing to help at a moment’s notice.
  • Busted Fuel Gauge – having a broken fuel gauge is a serious problem for many homeowners. If your gauge is stuck or completely broken, you need an expert technician from Townsend Energy to replace it for you. Otherwise, you will not know when your oil tank is about to run dry, which could lead to unexpected cold nights in the middle of a frigid New Hampshire winter.
  • Unstable Legs – do the legs on your oil tank appear uneven? Does the oil tank appear wobbly, like it’s about to tip over? Uneven legs might not seem like a big deal, but believe it or not they actually prevent your tank from working at maximum efficiency. This instability is a real and serious problem, so have Townsend Energy inspect the issue right away and we’ll provide a professional recommendation to solve the problem.

Things To Seriously Consider When Upgrading Your Steel Oil Tank IN Manchester NH

image of checklist depicting what to look for when buying a home heating oil tank

Are you in need of a new steel oil tank? Are you ready to upgrade to a newer make and model? You must consider the following important areas before making your final choice:

  • Oil Tank Warranty – does the oil tank you intend to purchase have a warranty? How many years are available on the warranty? Is it possible to get an extended warranty for even greater protection? Oil tanks typically last 15-20 years, but having a warranty will certainly help ease your mind in case something unexpected were to happen.
  • Product Lifespan – as I said, the typical oil tank will last for 15-20 years, but you may want to purchase a steel oil tank with an even longer lifespan. But at the same time, knowing the length of the lifespan will make it easier to make your overall choice.
  • Safety – is the product safe? Is the manufacturer known for creating safe and stable steel oil tanks? Nobody wants to wake up one morning to learn that their residential oil tank tipped over and crashed to the floor without warning one morning? Choose products that are known for their high-level safety ratings.
  • Product Orientation – how is the oil tank oriented? Is it a vertical or horizontal configuration? Ensure that the make and model of your choice is perfectly suited to meet your needs. It must have the correct orientation to fit perfectly within your home, otherwise, the tank isn’t any good.
  • Contractor – choosing the right contractor isn’t going to be an issue because you decided to trust Townsend Energy, the most well-respected HVAC company in Manchester NH. We have an impeccable reputation in this industry and go above and beyond to make sure our customers receive affordable top-notch services.

Pleased with the work

Review of Townsend Energy

They replaced my old oil tank. The initial estimate and site meeting were easy and prompt. When the install crew came the next week, they decided they should use a horizontal instead of a vertical tank, necessitating a second visit. They came back the following week with a different tank and did the install. A mix up like which tank is best is something I can understand and they did resolve the issue well. Stuff like that will happen and how a company handles that sort of thing is important and they did a good job ultimately getting it done.

Amazing service, professional installation!

Review of Townsend Energy

It’s always a great experience dealing with Townsend over the years. When our boiler started degrading rapidly, Townsend oil stepped up to find us the best, affordable solution to first, try to service our old boiler and second, work within our budget to have a new boiler professionally installed. The folks at Townsend were able to get professional installation technicians in within 24 hours to replace our heating system. They took care of the permits, disposal of our old clunker and left the work area cleaner than they found it. The installers were friendly and happy to explain the mechanics of the new system at the end of the install. They finished the work in one day (as promised) and were up and running by 5:00 pm! Never thought I’d be thrilled about something as mundane as a boiler but to not have to check on its condition daily is very comforting.
