Is Your Home Oil Heating System Winter Ready?

Download Tip Sheet

One of the biggest problems with not doing annual checks on your heating system is that you run the risk of it breaking down in the middle of winter, as this is when it is most used.

Maintaining the oil tank is something that homeowners frequently neglect. While oil tanks have a useful life of many years, eventually they will need to be replaced. Routine maintenance may also be needed so it’s important to have the condition of your tank monitored as part of the annual service of your heating system.

Most oil tanks and boilers have a working life of around 15 years. If your tank or boiler is more than 20 years old, it should be replaced.

Assuming that all is well with your oil tank/boiler is likely to be a false economy and a leak could leave you with a clean-up bill running into many thousands of pounds.

An escape of oil claim can be a very stressful experience for the home owner and requires specialist knowledge and expertise to handle and remedy the problem. So, if you experience an oil leak, you want to know that the environmental aspects of the problem will be handled professionally by calling in the experts – Verde Remediation Services.
