The Best Time of Year to Buy Heating Oil

Written on: August 28, 2023

Start the Heating Season with a Full Tank

heating oil delivery Chester county, pa The dog days of August might seem like the unlikeliest time to think about purchasing heating oil, but ordering your fuel in the off-season could save you money.

No one can predict when heating oil prices will rise or fall since prices are subject to a number of factors that can change quickly. This includes the price of crude oil, geopolitics, world events, the state of the economy and the weather. But filling your tank before the heating season officially begins on October 1 will almost always give you more bang for your buck.

Less expensive heating oil isn’t the only benefit to ordering fuel in the offseason. By keeping your tank full during the warm weather months, you could also help avoid issues with your heating oil storage tank too.

When your oil storage tank contains more air than fuel, moisture from the trapped air collects inside the tank, forming condensation on the tank’s walls. A damp tank is the perfect breeding ground for microorganisms that eventually create fuel line-clogging sludge. These conditions could also corrode the tank over time. With a full tank, there is less chance of condensation forming in the first place. This improves your tank’s overall lifespan and prevents costly heating system repairs or premature failure of your oil tank.
