You may own your property in Stroudsburg PA; but, when it comes to things like installing a new heating system; you will find that our Stroudsburg PA Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) will have plenty to say to you on the subject (over and beyond any broad guidelines that may have been issued by the national USEPA). For sake of argument; let’s say that you have decided to go for a state of the art heating system where the furnace is fueled by hydrocarbon based fuel oil.
Obviously, you cannot get your heating oil delivered through a pipe in the same way that you get your water supply; therefore, you are going to need to get some sort of Heating Oil Supplier In Stroudsburg PA. For aesthetic reasons; most people wish to have their oil storage tanks buried in the ground somewhere on the property (assuming you are living in a countryside home with a decent sized yard surrounding it). It should be equally obvious that soil or ground water contamination by leaking fuel oil will be a major concern of the NJDEP. For this reason, many contractors offering Oil Tank Installation In Stroudsburg PA these days are only recommending the use of above ground oil storage tanks. Unfortunately, these can sometimes obscure a view; but, they can, at least, be easily hidden or disguised so as not to present an eyesore in themselves.

Installing your new oil tank is not going to be a simple DIY job like installing a new water tank in a bathroom; for one, fuel oil leaks can be much more hazardous than simple water leaks (water does not catch fire or explode); plus, the environmental aspects will require expert attention to a number of details. Oil Tank Installation In Stroudsburg PA simply is one of those jobs where one really should call in the experts.
They will be able to advise you on the latest in long life, corrosion resistant, leak free tank designs; they will be able to plumb in all the required piping, gauges, valves, etc and, most importantly, they will have insured and bonded staff who not only know all about the NJDEP requirements; but are also approved by the authorities to undertake this sort of work. They will also arrange any particular permits, etc that your particular municipality may impose.
