Oil Tank Installation and Oil Tank Types
Quick Environmental provides oil tank installation services in New Jersey and Pennsylvania as either a single service or in conjunction with an oil tank removal. The state of New Jersey recommends installing above ground oil tanks as opposed to underground tanks because the risk of contamination to soil and groundwater is greatly reduced.
Concerned about having an oil tank inside of your house because of the risk of leaks or fumes? No worries, every Quick Environmental indoor oil tank installation adheres to the National Fire Protection Association Code Standard 31, for the Installation of Oil-Burning Equipment in the United States as well as any local codes that may apply.
Why should you install your oil tank indoors?
- Lower risk of contamination of soil or groundwater.
- Outside oil tanks are subject to condensation inside the tank due to changing temperatures which can cause service problems and corrode the tank.
- Oil stored in an outside tank requires additives in the winter in order to keep the oil at the correct viscosity.
- Outside tanks can become unstable due to their weight when full.
- An indoor installation requires less service and is less expensive to maintain.
If the tank installation is done along with an oil tank removal, we will have already determined with you the best location for your new above ground oil tank. Otherwise, Quick Environmental will visit your home to determine what measures need to be taken in order to safely install your new oil tank.

Roth and Granby Above Ground Oil Tanks
Installing a safe and reliable oil tank for your home is an important safeguard in preventing future leaks. Quick Environmental installs Roth Oil Tanks and Granby Oil Tanks exclusively. We believe they are the highest quality oil tanks available.

Not sure which above ground oil tank is best for your installation or what size you need? We would be happy to advise you on which brand and size is best for your installation. For size, we usually recommend buying slightly larger than you need in order to take advantage of lower heating oil prices as well as lengthen the time between fills.
