With all that’s going on in our lives these days, it’s easy to forget to take care of some pretty important stuff – like checking the gauge on our heating oil or propane tank.

The problem during is that you are probably using fuel more quickly than you realize, especially when a Pennsylvania cold front moves in – and without keeping a close eye on your fuel levels, you could easily run out.

It goes without saying that being without heat in the middle of winter is no fun, but it’s not the only problem that can result from a fuel run-out: in an oil-fired system, for example, sludge from the bottom of your tank can clog filters and fuel lines, damaging your equipment. If you run out of propane gas, your system automatically shuts down and must be professionally restarted and pressure tested – all at your expense. You could also end up with a propane leak – or frozen pipes resulting from a no-heat emergency.

The bottom line is you definitely want to avoid a fuel run-out. The good news is there are ways to reduce – or even eliminate – the chances of that happening.
