Check Your Tank: Why It’s Important and How to Do It
Did you know that it’s important to check your tank periodically? Maybe you just moved into your first home with a propane or a fuel oil tank? Or perhaps you are renting from someone and it’s your first experience with this sort of heat. If you just bought your first house, dealing with propane or fuel oil might be all new to you!
Either way, it’s important to check your tank periodically.
If you have no experience with caring for propane or fuel oil, the whole idea might be a bit…. daunting. Will the tank explode? How do you know if there is a leak? Is it safe to have the fuel oil tank inside your house?
You know these are dangerous elements, and you want to be sure to properly handle them. But at the same time, it’s so easy to totally forget about them! You wake up in the morning to a nice, cozy house, you have a hot shower and a good breakfast on the stove. Life is good!

In this article, we will cover why it is important to check your tank, and what can happen if you don’t. I’ll walk you through the proper way to check your tank, and how often you should check your tank.
And finally, I’ll leave you with a few people you can call, when you need to fill your tank or if you (heaven forbid!) need someone to come on out and service your tank.
So, let’s get started!
