Winter Safety Tips for MetroWest Homeowners
1. Know How to Read Your Fuel Oil Storage Tank Gauge
We want you to be as prepared as possible with these winter safety tips. Looking at your heating oil tank gauge regularly allows you to stay ahead of weather patterns. Always ensure you have enough fuel for your home or business with a proper tank gauge read.
2. Protect Home Heating Equipment
Home heating equipment such as furnaces and boilers should be taken care of properly to ensure it runs safely for your home and family through the winter. Sign up for our oil heat maintenance package to live worry free this season and ensure your equipment is in the best possible shape all year long.
3. Keep Driveway and Walkways Clear of Ice and Snow
Make sure to regularly plow your driveway and shovel any necessary walkways to your oil tank so that your fuel oil driver can deliver your heating oil safely and on schedule. It’s important that your heating oil provider can safely access your home and heating oil tank.
4. Clear Outdoor Tanks and Fill Pipes of Debris
Whether you have an outdoor or indoor oil tank, keep an eye on it during the winter. Winds and heavy snowfall are common occurrences for MA homeowners and can cause ice, snow, and branches to fall onto your tank or fill pipe. Be sure to keep your equipment clear of debris.
5. Sign up for Automatic Oil Delivery
Running out of heating oil isn’t only inconvenient, it can also be dangerous this time of year. Reduce your risk of an empty tank and no-heat emergency by signing up for automatic heating oil delivery.
