An average steel heating oil tank will last anywhere from 15 to 25 years, depending on how it’s constructed – which means that if your storage tank is entering its second decade, there’s a pretty good chance it’s going to need replacing sooner than later.
The question is, what size oil tank will you need? Here are some points to consider.
Heating oil tank size considerations
If you have a newer tank, the capacity is probably listed on its nameplate; if your tank that doesn’t list its capacity, you will have to estimate based on dimensions.
Once you’ve thought about these sizing factors, you’ll have a better idea where to begin your search for a heating oil tank upgrade for your Sullivan, Orange, or Ulster County home.
