Roth Oil Tank Replacement in Medford, Massachusetts

image of a home with a roth oil tank installation in medford ma

The Pierce family lived in Medford MA. Like many residents of this area, they used heating oil as their source for heat. Their heating oil tank was located in their basement and they had used it for many years. They knew that it was approaching the end of its lifespan. After coming home from work one day, they noticed that their tank had a leak underneath it. They called Townsend Energy immediately.

We dispatched Jeff Sartorelli, one of our seasoned technicians, to their home. He inspected their tank and verified that it had a slow leak. Since the tank was well over 30 years old, he recommended a Roth oil tank replacement for their Medford MA home.

Problem: The Pierce family from Medford MA had an old old oil tank in their basement that was leaking.

Solution: Townsend Energy removed their outdated oil tank and replaced it with a 275-gallon double wall Roth oil tank. Their new Roth tank was installed a few feet more to the right of the existing tank, opening up space to access their water shut off valve.

When To Replace Your Oil Tank In Medford MA

image of an old and rusty heating oil tank

One of the most common questions that our customers ask us relates to the heating oil tank on their property. You should always be aware of your oil tank’s age and condition. For example, new homeowners should ask about the oil tank before purchasing a home. You don’t want to buy a home and then find out that the tank is 30 years old and requires an oil tank replacement.

How Long Does An Oil Tank Last In Essex County?

On average, an oil tank lasts between 15-30 years. However, to be on the safe side, some insurance companies and localities require a replacement between the 15-20 year mark. Your oil tank’s lifespan will depend on the care it receives. An oil tank can last much longer when you properly care for it. When it comes to oil tanks, however, it is best to err on the side of caution. After all, a small oil leak can escalate very quickly and this is not an issue that you want to deal with. Oil leaks can be time-consuming, inconvenient, and very costly to deal with.

How Do I Know If I Need To Replace My Oil Tank Medford?

It is almost impossible to know whether or not your tank requires an upgrade. Some tanks may look like they’re in good condition from the outside while they are full of rust on the inside. This is why it is worth calling out a professional for an oil tank inspection. They can perform a complete assessment of your tank and inform you of what to expect. It is always a good idea to perform period checks yourself as well. However, you should certainly call for a professional examination of your tank once a year and certainly when it reaches the 15-year mark. Annual inspections are highly recommended for both new and old tanks.

What Are Oil Tank Replacement Signs?

There are a few signs to look out for.

  • Rust, Dents, Weeping: When you notice rust or dents on the surface of your tank, then give Townsend Energy a call right away. The same goes for wet spots or weeping under the tank.
  • Unstable Or Wobbly Legs: Some oil tanks fail earlier than other tanks because of improper installation. If your oil tank legs seem unstable, you’ll need to call an expert. This is especially true in areas that experience snowfall and ice.
  • Vent Alarm: You should always make sure that your oil tank has a vent alarm that is properly working. If the vent alarm is missing or does not whistle when your tank is being filled, then you will need to have this repaired.
  • Fuel Gauge: Make sure that your fuel gauge isn’t cracked, damaged, or frozen. If you observe any oil around the gauge, this could be a sign of other issues that you will need to address. Are the oil lines that run from the heater to the tank, encased with a protective coating? If your fuel lines are under concrete or above ground, they should have a protective coating on them as well.
  • Vent Pipe: Be on the lookout for vent pipe clogs. This can be caused by snow, ice, insects, or nesting by animals.
  • Oil Use: If you are using more oil than what you consider to be normal, then call Townsend Energy immediately. One of our professionals will need to inspect your tank to find the cause.

Whenever you notice the above signs, you will need to give the experts at Townsend Energy a call. We can inspect your tank and offer you solutions to ensure that your system is safe and efficient. Call today to schedule an appointment.
