The Benefits of a Full Tank Over the Summer

- 1:00 pm - June 25th, 2024

At Southside Fuel, we understand if the beach or sunny weather has you preoccupied, but it’s important to remember to keep your heating oil storage tank full over the off-season. There are numerous benefits that come with maintaining a full storage tank over the summer and we are going to explain a few.


  • Beat the Fall Price Hike: Heating oil prices fluctuate throughout the year, and summer is generally a time of lower demand and lower prices. Schedule your delivery this summer and save yourself some money!


  • Increased Availability: The fall and winter are a very busy season for us at Southside Fuel. During the summer, we have more availability around scheduling, so you can easily schedule a time that works for you! 


  • Preventative Maintenance: A full tank of heating oil helps prevent condensation from forming inside your tank, which can lead to big problems. Since water is denser than heating oil, small droplets will sink to the bottom of your tank. Bacteria and other microorganisms will form, multiply, and form sediment that can enter your fuel line, clog it, and cause tank corrosion. Leaving no empty space for condensation to form is crucial for your tank’s health, and Southside Fuel has all the fuel you need!


  • Peace of Mind: In addition to spending less money on your heating oil, increased delivery availability, and protecting your heating system, maintaining a full heating oil tank over the summer gives you peace of mind, knowing that you are prepared to start next winter with a full tank of fuel.
