Heating Oil Tank Spring/Summer Maintenance

Don’t Let Your Tank Sit Empty!

heating oil delivery massachusettsAs a New England resident, you are used to relying on your heating system to keep you warm and comfortable all winter. If you’re a responsible heating oil customer, you never want to get caught with an empty heating oil tank, so you’ve either signed up for automatic delivery or you vigilantly check your tank’s level and call for a delivery before it gets too low.

Now that things are finally beginning to warm up, you may be tempted to stop thinking about your heating oil tank or to let it run down to less than you would in the winter. However, that’s a bad idea.

There are a number of reasons it’s a good idea to keep your heating oil tank full all spring and summer long. And if you’re a Lombardi Energy & Gas customer, we can help make that affordable.

An Empty Tank Can Cause Problems

When your heating oil tank is allowed to get close to empty, debris can clog your oil filters. That is likely to reduce the efficiency of your heating system or even cause it to fail. Both of those scenarios will cost you more money in energy and/or repair costs. Especially during the warmer months, whenever your tank levels get low you need to worry about condensation. Water tends to collect in an empty tank. That water can cause rust, and that rust can cause your heating system to fail. So by keeping a full tank, you can avoid some very costly problems.

Keep a Full Tank & Save Money

At Lombardi Energy & Gas, we offer our customers several ways to manage their bills so that keeping a full tank year-round isn’t a financial burden. Here are some of the payment plans and discounts we offer our customers:

  • Budget Plan: Regardless of how much or how frequently you order heating oil, your yearly heating costs are split into 12 easy (and predictable) payments. Your heating oil bill is the same each month—even high usage months when you might need more than one delivery.
  • Fixed Pricing Plan: Lock in a predetermined per gallon price that you’ll pay for the duration of the time you’re enrolled. You won’t have to worry about price fluctuations, because your per gallon price will be set.
  • Cap Pricing Plan: For a small fee, we purchase a predetermined amount of heating oil for you at a capped price. You’ll never pay more than the capped price for your heating oil, and if the price of oil drops, you’ll pay the lower price.
  • Prompt Pay Discount: Save money on your bill by simply paying for your heating oil within 10 days of delivery.

Avoid the problems (and additional costs) that can arise when you allow your heating oil tank’s level to get too low. With so many ways to save on and manage your heating oil bills, it’s a good idea to keep your tank full all year long.
