For the safety of your family, your property and the environment, homeowners should be checking their heating oil tanks on a regular basis. Our recommendation is to periodically check your tank yourself and have it professionally checked once per year during your annual cleaning service. The video below will highlight some of the things to look for while periodically checking your tank.
“Since 2010, Massachusetts law mandates that insurance companies offer coverage for leaks from oil heat systems and that homeowners install specific leak-prevention systems (either an oil safety valve or an oil supply line with protective sleeve). Most homeowner policies do not currently include such coverage, leaving many to pay for costly cleanups out of their own pocket. The insurance is an optional purchase”(mass.gov). PLEASE CONSIDER PURCHASING THIS OPTIONAL COVERAGE BY CONTACTING YOUR INSURANCE AGENT.
