Fuel Tank Inspections

In order to comply with new fuel tank regulations in Vermont, our service technicians and staff have been trained to perform fuel tank inspections to assess compliance.

The regulations are designed to reduce the risk of accidental spills and fuel leakage, which can result in significant costs to homeowners and environmental damage on their properties.

We'll perform these inspections for customers during a heating system service, at the time of our next scheduled fuel delivery, or at the request of our customers. If any issues are found during the fuel tank inspection, we're equipped with tools and experience to bring your tank into compliance or replace the tank if necessary.
