New Home Heating Oil Tank Regulations -Boston

New law requires oil heat system upgrade – Boston Real Estate – Boston.com

Under a new Massachusetts oil heating law which went into effect on September 30, 2011, every homeowner with an oil heating system is required to install an oil safety valve or an oil supply line with protective sleeve in their system. The cost is approximately $150 to $350 depending on the system. The required upgrade is to prevent leaks from tanks and pipes that connect to your furnace. The upgrade will reduce the risk of an oil leak so by making a relatively small expenditure now, you can prevent a much greater expense in the future.Who Must Upgrade?
Owners of 1- to 4-unit residences that are heated with oil must already have or install an oil safety valve or an oil supply line with a protective sleeve. Installation of these devices must be performed by a licensed oil burner technician. Technicians are employed by companies that deliver home heating oil or are self-employed. It is important to note that heating oil systems installed on or after January 1, 1990 most likely are already in compliance because state fire codes implemented these requirements on new installations at that time.

Who Is Exempt? Homeowners are exempt from taking these leak prevention steps if: • the oil burner is located above the oil storage tank and the entire oil supply line is connected to and above the top of the tank OR • an oil safety valve or oil supply line with protective sleeve was installed on or after January 1, 1990, AND • those changes are in compliance with the oil burning equipment regulations; a copy of the oil burner permit from the local fire department may be used to demonstrate compliance.

Happy New Year from Krueger Gauge

We hope everyone had a great holiday, and I would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year.

A few quick facts from Wisconsin:

  1. We did not have a price change this year, but we did vastly improve our price book.  If you want one and don’t get one soon, let us know.
  2. The Green Bay Packers are 15-1 and heading to the Playoffs.  I would like to gloat that the Lions could not even beat us with our back up QB in the game, but that kind of bragging would be premature.  Much like Suh’s silly celebration during the game when he got a sack.  I will not stoop to such lows.  Our goal is the Super Bowl.
  3. The Wisconsin Badgers are in the Rose Bowl for the second straight year.  Win or Lose, it has been a great year for them.  I will be leaving work early today so as not to miss the game.
  4. The fax machine had over a hundred orders on it this morning after our week off.  After a strong 2011 it looks like 2012 is starting off pretty good.
  5. It was below zero this morning when I came into work.  Looks like winter is finally here.  For those of you in Florida and other warm locales, when you call and tell me about your 80 degree weather it just makes me mad…  So let’s just keep that to yourself…

Happy New Year to all from all of us at Krueger Sentry Gauge.
