2 Ways to Keep Track of Your Oil Tank Fill Level
Reliable home heating is essential in New England, and Massachusetts and Connecticut are no exception. You don’t want to be without heat in the winter for even a minute! For starters, your family will be cold and uncomfortable. Beyond that, your pipes can freeze and burst, causing costly damage.
Fortunately, there are two easy ways to keep track of your home heating oil levels. Let’s take a look:
Option 1: Read Your Oil Tank Gauge Weekly
If you’re monitoring your own oil tank levels, you should check your tank and fuel every week or two. Here are some instructions on how to easily check how much fuel is in your tank:
- Find the cylindrical glass gauge on top of your oil tank.
- Read it like your car’s gas gauge: Full, ¾, ½. ¼, Empty.
- If it reads ¼ or less, order oil right away. If it reads more than ¼, set a reminder to check again next week.
The important part about this method is remembering to check your oil levels and remembering to place your oil order when your tank gets low. Keep an eye on the forecast and take winter storms into account when planning your orders: storms require more oil, and deliveries are trickier in the snow.
