General

If you’re needing a new heating oil tank, whether to replace your existing tank or for a new installation, it’s important you choose the right size for your home and for your individual circumstances.  There are difference storage tanks available and you need to consider where it’s going to be located, whether you are space-limited, as well as how much fuel you will use and how often you would prefer to fill your tank.

Heating oil tanks come in a variety of shapes and sizes. The size of tank needed will depend on the size of your property, the space available for locating the tank and your heating requirements, for instance whether you use for heating, cooking or both. If you are at home most of the time and have your heating on all day, your consumption is likely to be higher than if you are at work all day and the heating is set to come on with a timer before you return home. The minimum delivery is 500 litres but being able to store more fuel may bring the benefit of being able to order more - larger volumes usually attract a lower unit pence per litre price.

Whatever size and type of tank you decide to buy, make sure it complies with OFTEC standards. For advice on what size of tank will suit your requirements, call us on 01423 770 666.
