Choosing a Heating Oil Tank Size

You can view all of our heating oil tanks as a long term investment, as they are built to last. By buying a tank with a large capacity, you can save money on kerosene. Though the initial heating tank cost will be more, you can save money in the long run by bulk buying kerosene. The price of kerosene often changes, but a larger tank allows you to stock up when prices are low. You can take advantage of offers, deals and savings. A large heating oil tank also means you don’t need to refuel it as often, which can reduce the cost of deliveries. It also reduces the chances of you running out of fuel completely. Over the course of the tank’s lifespan, these savings really do add up. It’s a good idea to opt for the highest heating oil tank capacity within your budget and space.

All of our heating oil tanks come with a 10 year guarantee when registered, and our single skin heating tanks come with a two year guarantee when registered.

Heating Oil Tanks in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland

There’s a large focus on protecting the environment and this means that regulations in Wales are becoming increasingly strict. Any heating oil tank in Wales with a capacity of more than 200 litres must be bunded. In Scotland, any oil tank with a capacity of more than 2,500 litres must be bunded. In Northern Ireland, it’s the same secondary containment requirements as England and all tanks with a capacity of more than 3,500 liters must be bunded.

If you choose a fire protected heating oil tank, then you have more flexibility with distances from the tank to the building. All you need to do is ensure the base is at least 50mm thick. There’s a lot more flexibility on placement.
