Woodford Oil Company strives to be your supplier of choice for home heating fuel. Our modern fleet of delivery tankwagons will deliver your home heating fuel on your schedule.
No. 2 Fuel Oil is refined from selected crudes and is carefully blended to produce a high quality fuel. It conforms to ASTM D-396 Fuel Oil specifications and is recommended for use in all domestic or industrial applications requiring a No. 2 Fuel Oil. This oil is blended and additized to ensure good storage stability and to resist rust deposit formation.
Our kerosene is a special, highly refined low-sulfur kerosene. This kerosene is recommended for use in all non-flue connected (ventless) kerosene burner applications and in wick-fed illuminating lamps.
This product meets ASTM D-3699 specifications for 1-K Kerosene and exceeds those for 2-K Kerosene. It also exceeds ASTM D-396 specifications for No. 1 Fuel Oil. 1-K Kerosene is naturally stable and therefore not additized. It can be stored for long periods of time without degradation and gum formation and has very low sulfur content, which ensures low sulfur dioxide emissions. It is required in ventless burners.

Q: How energy efficient is it to heat my home with oil?
A: Very! The average oil heat system consumes less fuel than gas, and oil burners produce the most efficient flame when compared to gas systems. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, oil heat systems are 16% more efficient than gas heat systems and 30% more efficient than electric heating systems.
Q: Doesn’t oil pollute the environment?
A: No, a new oil heat system with a properly serviced burner generates less carbon monoxide than piped gas and does not contribute significantly to air pollution. One BTU of gas releases more pollutants into the atmosphere than does one BTU of oil. In fact, home fuel oil burns so cleanly that it is not subject to any clean air requirements.
Q: Will oil heat keep my home warm enough?
A: Absolutely! The oil heat flame quickly burns at 2,200 degrees Fahrenheit. This is the reason oil consumers are much more comfortable in their homes versus those who complain that their electric heat pump does not provide the comfortable warmth of oil during those cold days of winter.
Q: Is oil safe?
A: Unlike gaseous fuels, fuel oil will not support a flame unless the temperature is above 140 degrees Fahrenheit. Even at those temperatures, there is not enough fuel vapor to cause an explosion.
Q: Is it more expensive to heat with oil than with gas or electric?
A: As it so happens, heating with oil is your best buy: oil consumers receive up to 30% more for their heating dollar than do those who heat with natural gas or electricity. In fact, when measured in constant dollars, fuel oil prices have actually dropped while natural gas prices have significantly risen due to pipeline and utility expenses.
