September 10, 2014

When it comes time for a fuel oil delivery to your Utica, NY home, you know you can count on Fred F. Collis & Sons Heating & Cooling to meet your needs. But you might be confused about the different types of fuel available for your home, and you might be wondering if you’re choosing the best kind for maximum home comfort and efficiency. You may have heard people talking about home fuel oil, and others talking about #2 fuel, and you might be confused which one is right for your system. Luckily, we can help answer this question and more.

Quite simply, distillate home heating oil is known in the United States as #2 heating oil. No. 2 fuel oil is mostly used here in the northeastern United States, and it’s pretty much the general type of fuel oil delivered by most fuel providers in this region of the country. It’s a low viscosity, liquid petroleum product used as a fuel for your furnace or boiler, often abbreviated HHO. No. 2 fuel oil in the United States must conform to the American Society for Testing and Materials, or ASTM, standard D396.
