It’s that time of the year again, the UK Heatwave has taken over and it's only natural for us Brits to change our whole outlook on life: tops come off, beer gardens are overrun and we constantly complain that it’s ‘too hot’.
So, the last thing you’ll be thinking about is filling up your oil tank, however, we’re here to tell you why you should top up your oil tank this summer to protect your tank and heating oil system.
Why Top Up Your Oil Tank?
The heat and moisture due to the hot weather can cause condensation to occur in your oil tank which when mixed with your fuel can lead to the build-up of harmful tank sludge.
Tank sludge can lead to the blockage of pipes and filters, reductions in boiler efficiency and overall system damage.
Why should you top up?
It's simple; if your tank is full there is less air space inside the tank for condensation to form! Less condensation means less water interacting with the fuel and a lower risk of sludge developing!
Benefits of a Summer Top Up
- Reduces condensation
- Peace of mind – no surprise run outs!
