Oil tank covers don’t just improve the appearance of your home, they help protect your fuel oil tank from the elements which increases the tank’s lifespan and saves you money. For many years people have had to put with unsightly oil tanks cluttering up the exterior of their homes. Exposure to the Long Island weather can also affect the quality and usability of the fuel oil inside. Fortunately, there’s an inexpensive and easy way to improve your home’s appearance and extend the life of your tank.
Fuel Tank Covers Guard Against Long Island Weather
Besides protecting your tank from the corrosive effects of rain and snow, there are many great reasons to invest in a fuel tank cover. Here are a few of the advantages of oil tank covers:
- Helps prevent rust and corrosion caused by rain, snow, frost, and general wear and tear
- Keeps chemicals and important connections away from your family
- Saves the environment and your wallet — oil tank covers provides early warning signs of any leakage, preventing costly repairs or cleanup
Oil tank covers are a great way to improve the look of your fuel tank, which can sometimes stick out like a sore thumb. Choose an enclosure that matches your house and yard. Fuel tank covers don’t just look good, they’re made with durable materials that protect the tank from harsh weather and environmental conditions, while providing easy access and ventilation.
Prevent Oil Gelling
Many towns around the country are working to eliminate buried oil tanks, insisting instead on aboveground tanks. While there are many benefits to visible tanks, they can be an eyesore, and are also susceptible to oil ‘gelling’. This occurs when the oil drops to a temperature below 5 degrees Fahrenheit and begins to thicken and ‘gel’ in the tank. If left unattended gelling can lead to more serious complications and even cause a complete system shutdown. Oil tank covers help to prevent this from happening by lowering the risk of freezing temperatures affecting the oil and reducing the wind chill factor.
Fuel tank covers are a great asset to any home. They help to keep the home safe, lower the money you spend on oil, protect the environment and improve the look of your home and yard.
