The UK has seen the hottest July day on record, with temperatures hitting 36.7C (98F).
The Met Office said the reading had been registered at Heathrow – breaking the previous record set in 2006. A level 3 “heatwave action” heat-health alert was declared for all parts of England.
If you’re not already aware of the perils of potential heat damage to your heating oil tank, now’s the time to get clued up. Ensure you check your oil tank for any signs of sun damage before the cool nights of autumn set in. Whitening and discolouration are signs of surface bleaching of your plastic oil storage tank, which is caused by exposure to the UV light from the sun. If you discover signs of damage and need to replace your existing oil tank read this before you splash out on a new oil tank as there’s plenty to consider.
