Residential Heating Oil Storage Tanks

Residential heating oil storage tanks have been installed and used in Canada for over 60 years. Many homes built between the 1920s and 1960s used oil as a heating fuel. Tanks have an average life of 20 to 25 years, after which they can begin to leak hazardous materials. There are two types: aboveground tanks (typically found in basements or outside of a home) and underground tanks (buried). As alternative heating sources, such as natural gas, propane and electricity, have become available, many of these storage tanks are now unused.

Homeowners selling homes who are aware of a residential heating oil tank on the property are obligated (in B.C.) to disclose this fact on the PCDS (Property Condition Disclosure Statement) when they sell their home.
