Petroleum Tank Installation in Your Fairfax VA Home

Petroleum tank installation in your Fairfax VA home should only be done by professionals, such as those at SES. You, the homeowner, still have an important role in this process: you need to determine the location of the tank. Since a home oil tank is a large unit and requires a lot of space, you may only have a few options for petroleum tank installation in your Fairfax VA home.

A petroleum oil tank is usually six feet long and about four feet high, so if you decide to have your for petroleum tank installation inside of your Fairfax VA home, your space must be large enough to fit the tank. The tanks will fit quite well in the most spacious areas of your home – the garage or basement – because garages and basements have plenty of floor space, uninterrupted by walls or furniture. Also, since your garage or basement has a solid concrete floor, your new tank will not require additional footing, and can be placed right on top of the concrete.

Petroleum tank installation inside of your Fairfax VA home garage is fairly easy and the tank is accessible for filling through the garage. The boiler is usually located nearby the oil tank, and an extended pipe line may be run from the tank straight to the furnace. Another option is to install the tank right next to the boiler unit and run a small pipe line directly to the oil intake. Just remember that an oil tank must have sufficient room on all sides in order to be properly inspected. So, take this into account when measuring any area for a possible installation.

No room for a petroleum tank installation inside of your Fairfax VA home? In addition to lack of space, outside installation offers ease of access and safety. The tank must be placed in an area where it is out of the way, and unlikely to incur damage. The tank must be set on a solid foundation, usually a poured concrete slab. You may also have to move outdoor fixtures or greenery before petroleum tank installation outside of your Fairfax VA home. A fence may be moved back a few feet to allow the tank to be installed against the outside of the home, and shrubs, trees, and flowers may need to be relocated by digging them up and replanting them away from the side of your home.
