Homeowners Get $125 Back in the Bank With "Retire Your Tank" Program

MARKHAM, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - May 13, 2011) - Upgrading to a new, modern fuel oil storage tank is now even more rewarding thanks to an incentive program from the Canadian Oil Heat Association (COHA). The Retire your Tank cash-bank tank replacement program gives homeowners a $125 rebate on the purchase of select models and runs May 15 to December 31, 2011.

"Modern tanks come equipped with extra features that protect your home," says Veronica Yu, COHA President and CEO. "Twenty-first century oil storage solutions offer revolutionary improvements and provide worry-free options for consumers who heat with oil".

The $125 rebate is available on select models including:

• Steel double bottom tanks
• Double-walled or 2-in-1 polyethylene tanks
• Single- or double-walled fibreglass

Upgrading from an older, conventional steel storage tank to a superior storage option means homeowners can take advantage of longer equipment life, enhanced warranties of up to 30 years, versatile, space-saving designs and worry-free storage.

"The insurance industry has also embraced this program and there may also be potential savings in house insurance premiums depending on the provider," says Yu.

New tanks must be installed by a COHA GreenTECH(TM) Certified technician or by an installer who has attended COHA's tank installation Best Practices training. With a GreenTECH(TM) certification, homeowners benefit from specially trained professionals who are at the leading-edge of design, installation and servicing of energy efficient heating solutions, domestic hot water systems and fuel oil tanks. A list of participating installers is available at

"It is our goal to make this program as easy as possible for homeowners to participate," says Yu. "All paperwork will be filled out and submitted by the installer and the cheque will arrive by mail. It is as simple as that!"
