3 Benefits of Topping Off Your MA Home’s Oil Tank This Summer

Your oil tank worked hard all winter to keep your Southeastern Massachusetts home warm and cozy, and now that summer has begun and the weather has warmed, it’s getting a well-deserved rest. However, just because your tank is not in constant use this season doesn’t mean it should be out of mind. Our experts here at Falmouth Energy understand that June is the perfect time to top off your tank with a summer fill to keep your home protected. Read on to learn the benefits of placing a heating oil order this summer.

Top Benefits of A Summer Fill-Up

Prevent Condensation and Corrosion

The chance of damage to your tank increases if it is left near empty during the warmer months. Warm weather can cause condensation inside the tank, and this condensation can lead to internal corrosion. Because this damage isn’t visible, homeowners often don’t notice an issue until it is too late. Keeping your oil tank full year-round is an easy way to decrease the chance of this potentially dangerous and expensive situation.

Take Advantage of Off-Season Prices

It’s simple economics; when demand increases, so do oil prices. In the spring and summer months, demand is lower due to the warmer weather, so now might be the perfect time to fill up your tank. We don’t know where prices will be in the Fall, but historically, summer has offered some of the lowest prices of the year.

Prepare for Unpredictable Weather

From time to time, we experience a stretch of unseasonable weather, and while most of the days are warm and sunny right now, there is always a chance of a cold spell. Rest easier knowing you’re ready to turn on the heat if the temperature drops unexpectedly. In addition, you’re always going to need fuel for your hot water heater, which powers everyday appliances like your shower, sink, and washing machine.
