If you live in the Northeast and your home was built before the 1990s, you probably need heating oil. If your supply runs low, or worse, you run out, it can damage your heating system. Low fuel levels result in a build-up of sludge because dirt, dust, and other particles are set on the bottom of the oil tank. When left to fester, it can clog the filter and prevent your system from working effectively.

And so, this begs the question—do you need heating oil delivery in the spring? The answer is yes, a resounding yes.

5 Reasons You Need to Schedule Your Spring Heating Oil Delivery 

It might seem a bit counterintuitive to think you need to order your oil in the spring. After all, the weather is getting warmer, and you’re relying less on heat to keep your home warm and comfortable. But the truth is that the weather these days is volatile. We can have a super warm day; the next day, we’re trying to figure out where to put our wool socks. 

But getting a heating oil delivery in the spring can do more than protect you from unexpected weather. Read on to see why we recommend it.

  1. Protect Your Fuel Oil Tank

Keeping your oil tank full during spring helps avoid damage. When it’s empty, moisture can get inside. This moisture causes rust and sludge, which are bad for your tank. A full tank means less air and less chance for moisture. This keeps your heating system safe and ready for next winter.

Ordering your heating oil now lets you check one thing off your spring to-do checklist. And, at Arlex Oil, we make ordering your heating oil easy. Plus, with the internet and our convenient website, you can order any time, day or night. It’s quick, and you don’t have to call or wait.

  1. Take Advantage of Costs Before They Go Up Further

Heating oil costs have seen a steady and rather dramatic uptick over the last couple of years. Unfortunately, we can’t predict when they will start to level out or go back down. Ordering your heating oil now can help you take advantage of the current costs.

  1. Stay Prepared for When the Weather Turns

As we shared earlier, today’s weather can be rather unpredictable. Don’t leave yourself cold and shivering. Protect your family and your heating system by scheduling a spring heating oil delivery. You’ll be glad you did.
