After what’s turned out to be one of the worst winters in recent years, we’re all grateful for the signs of spring that we’re seeing. One of the best things about spring is not having to worry so much about how much heating oil we’re burning through, even though you found this website for cheap fuel. You can cross off yet another heating-related worry by checking over your tank and getting it and the rest of your system serviced after their busiest period.
You should quickly check over your tank once a week or so, ideally, to check for rust, bulges or leaks, but spring definitely warrants a more thorough inspection by you and an engineer.
Here’s what you can do once you spot a few daffodils out and about.
Clean the area immediately around your tank
If your tank is outside then it’ll gather weeds, leaves, mud and all sorts of other debris over the winter. The walkways and hard standing can become slippery, which will make life difficult for you and your engineer, so take a while to sweep, brush or jet-wash the remnants of winter away.
