As the warmer months approach, many people begin to focus on their air conditioning needs, but what about your heating oil needs? While you may not be actively using your heating system during the summer months, it’s still important to think about heating oil.

At Ariba Oil, we believe that proper maintenance and preparation of your heating oil system is crucial to ensuring its longevity and optimal performance. Here are a few reasons why you should pay attention to your heating oil system during the summer months:

  1. Preventive Maintenance Summer is an excellent time to have your heating oil system checked out by a professional. Your HVAC technician can check your system for leaks, clean or replace filters, and perform any necessary maintenance or repairs. By catching and addressing potential issues early, you can avoid costly repairs down the line and ensure that your system is ready to go when the colder months arrive.
  2. Price Fluctuations While heating oil prices are generally lower during the summer months, they can still fluctuate. By keeping an eye on prices and purchasing heating oil when prices are low, you can save money on your heating costs in the long run. At Ariba Oil, we offer a price cap program that allows you to lock in a price for your heating oil, protecting you from price spikes during the winter months.
  3. Fuel Quality It’s important to ensure that your heating oil is stored properly during the summer months. Heat and sunlight can cause degradation in fuel quality, leading to sludge buildup and corrosion in your system. By keeping your fuel tank full and ensuring that it’s properly sealed, you can help preserve the quality of your heating oil.
  4. Emergency Preparedness Summer is the perfect time to make sure that you’re prepared for any heating emergencies that may occur during the colder months. Make sure that you have a sufficient supply of heating oil on hand and that your heating system is functioning properly. It’s also a good idea to have a backup heating system in case of an emergency.
