Common Issues With Heating Oil Tanks

When it comes to your heating oil tank, it is important to order high quality heating oil such as the fuel oil offered by Point Bay Fuel. You wouldn't put low grade oil into your new car, so why would you do this to your heating system? Yet, this aspect of many homeowner's heating system is often neglected. When a fuel oil tank is filled with oil low grade oil, many issues can arise. Being that the tank is a fundamental part of your heating system, the condition of your tank directly impacts the health of your furnace.

A fuel oil tank often develops sludge when low quality oil is put into it. Tank sludge is made up of the impurities that are found in heating oil. Water and solid particulates are some impurities found in heating oil. These particles settle at the bottom of your tank.

Water can also get into your tank through the process of condensation. When the temperature in your heating oil tank rises after a cold night, condensation forms from the air that is in a tank. Water is heavier than heating oil so, the water goes to the bottom of the tank. After a while, the water accumulates and forms a slime. Sludge and slime can clog your fuel lines and if it gets bad enough it can even make your furnace completely malfunction.
