Check Your Oil Tank Gauge When Temperatures Drop!

winter oil tank care marylandRunning out of heating oil during a Maryland winter is no fun – apart from the obvious discomfort of not having enough heat to keep your family safe and comfortable, it also creates a risk for frozen and bursting water pipes or mold problems – both of which can cause thousands of dollars in damage to your home.

Those are some pretty compelling reasons to avoid running out of fuel this winter. But what’s the best way to do that?

If you’re a will call customer, you could do it by being vigilant about checking the gauge on your tank. But with all we’ve got on our minds these days, is it realistic to expect you’ll have the discipline to do it as often as you need to – especially when temperatures drop and you’re burning through eight gallons or more of heating oil a day?

In our experience, most people don’t.
