Heating Oil Tanks
Oil Tank Replacement
If your home heating oil tank is more than 10 years old, it's time to consider a replacement.
A heating oil tank that bursts or cracks will cause damage to human health, buildings and/or the environment.
The financial costs of a an oil leak can run into hundreds of thousands and if the tank is proven to be old and weathered, the insurance company may refuse to pay out.
New Tanks in New Builds
Most newer builds are designed to run on heat pumps with oil as a back-up.
The difference in price between a 650 litre tank and 1100 or 1200 litre tank is small. Unless there is a space limitation, we recommend the larger tank. This gives you the option to fill the tank at the most competitive rate on offer at any time, with any distributor anywhere in Ireland.
Tanks for Home Heating
At Glen Fuels, we always recommend:
- Double skinned (bunded) oil tank as this protects your property and surrounding environment from damage if the inner skin starts to leak
- Check with your local Council and your insurer if you can have a single skin tank on your property
Tanks for home heating come in different shapes and sizes -
- Low profile

How much oil does a standard modern house?in Heating Oil FAQs
This depends on the efficiency of the boiler and whether it is serviced regularly, which is a must.
If you look after your boiler, it will use approximately €1,300 per year worth of oil.
This figure can be halved if you install a newer condensing boiler.
