Choosing the system that’s right for you
Fredericks Fuel was around when heating oil and central air conditioning came into widespread use. Over the years we have installed hundreds of systems. Whether you are looking to replace your old, inefficient central A/C system, or you need a whole new install, we can help you choose a system that will provide maximum comfort and energy efficiency.
We have installed many of the most popular brands, and our installation team is the best in the area. Once you have decided to hire us, we will plan out your system for maximum performance, and our installation team will take utmost care in your home to cause as little disruption as possible. Once we are done, you can be confident that your new central air conditioning system will provide cool comfort for many years to come. Read on to learn more about how central air works and when to start thinking about a central air upgrade.
Central air 101
Central air conditioners work by cooling down warm air to achieve a desired level of comfort indoors. Once the air is cooled – typically by refrigerant – it is distributed throughout the home or building using a ductwork system – often the same ductwork that a furnace heater uses to distribute warm air in the colder months. Because the air conditioner and furnace use the same centralized ductwork system, the AC is often referred to as “central air.”
When should you upgrade your central air?
- You’re looking for ways to save. A new Energy Star-rated air conditioning system could significantly lower your electricity bills – not to mention the enhanced comfort you’ll enjoy after your new central air is installed! When you choose to upgrade your central air conditioner, our home comfort experts can help you find the best equipment for your needs and your budget—as well as help you take advantage of special financing and rebate programs.
- You want maximum efficiency. Not only will your new A/C keep you cool all summer long, but it will also reduce your energy bills and help to mitigate the demand on our local power grid. Today’s A/C systems are far more energy efficient than those installed as recently as 20 years ago.
- You’re looking for smart home technology. Modern central air systems are also compatible with smart thermostats, which are fully programmable. With a smart thermostat, you can preset the temperature inside different zones in your home, allowing for maximum efficiency. You can even remotely control the thermostat from an app on your phone.
Trust Fredericks Fuel for your North Jersey AC needs!
Our equipment experts can help you choose the central air system that makes the most sense for you and your budget.

Diesel fuel can help your business succeed
Do you know the difference between on-road and off-road fueling, and what it can do for your business? In addition to heating oil, Fredericks Fuel provides both types of fuel for our commercial customers including farms, landscapers, builders, excavators, pavers, movers, waste haulers, truckers, foodservice, courier and delivery industries, and more. To learn more about this convenient service – and about diesel fuel in general – read on. Whatever your industry, we can deliver gasoline, on- or off-road diesel to your North Jersey job site in a way that works best for you!
On-road vs. Off-road: What’s the difference?
- Where will your diesel vehicles be driven? On-road diesel is specially formulated to be legal when driving on public roads, such as highways or public streets. Off-road diesel is only for use on private property, such as on a construction site or a farm.
- What type of vehicle will be driven? Standard vehicles that are meant for driving on roadways will typically use on-road fuel. Vehicles and other equipment such as generators, tractors, forklifts and construction vehicles can generally use off-road fuel.
- Where is the fuel dispensed? Gas stations only offer on-road fuel, since vehicles that can travel to a gas station will need to use public roadways.
- What color is the fuel? Believe it or not, on-road and off-road fuels are different colors! That’s because off-road diesel is dyed red by manufacturers, as required by law. This makes it easy for a quick inspection to determine what type of fuel a vehicle is using. On-road fuel is clear in color, just like regular gasoline. For this reason, on-road diesel is sometimes referred to as clear diesel.
- Taxes and fuel costs. Off-road fuel is cheaper than on-road diesel, because it is not subject to excise taxes, since the fuel isn’t used on public roadways.
- Performance. There’s no difference in the performance of vehicles using on-road versus off-road fuel. Vehicles can theoretically use either type of fuel – although it would not be in your best interest to use the fuels interchangeably. The reason is that it’s illegal to use off-road fuel in an on-road vehicle, and it’s unnecessarily expensive to use on-road fuel in an off-road vehicle, since you’d be paying taxes that you don’t actually owe.
Trust Fredericks Fuel as your diesel fuel supplier
Whatever type of vehicles and fuel your business uses, we’ve got you covered. In other words, attention truckers and heavy equipment operators: Fredericks Fuel has your diesel fuel. Visit our Wantage plant for on- or off-road diesel or contact us to schedule a fuel delivery. With plentiful on-site storage, Fredericks Fuel offers competitive pricing and a dependable supply of both on- and off-road diesel fuel.
For your convenience, Fredericks Fuel offers both on- and off-road diesel fuel for all of your transportation, equipment and heating needs. If you are located in Oak Ridge, Sparta, Wantage or anywhere in Northern NJ, contact us today to learn why Fredericks Fuel should be your diesel fuel supplier.

- We know you’ve heard this tip before, but sometimes the simplest fix works! Try turning your heater off and back on again.
- Reset your thermostat. Make sure it’s set to the correct temperature. Try turning it up a notch.
- Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers.
- Check the air filter to see if it is obstructed or needs to be changed.
- Make sure there is nothing blocking, putting pressure on, or obstructing your heating system.
- Is your furnace pilot light lit? If not, check to make sure your gas is turned on, but don’t try to light it yourself. You’ll need to call a pro for that.

Diesel fuel FAQs
Do you know the basics about diesel fuel and what it can do for your business? In addition to heating oil, Fredericks Fuel provides gasoline and on-road diesel for our commercial customers including farms, landscapers, builders, excavators, pavers, movers, waste haulers, truckers, foodservice, courier and delivery industries, and more. To learn more about this convenient service – and about diesel fuel in general – read on, then reach out to one of our fuel experts with any questions you may have.
All about diesel fuel
- What IS diesel fuel, anyways? We’ve all heard of diesel fuel and encountered the diesel pumps at the gas station, but many people aren’t truly familiar with what this fuel is and does. Diesel fuel is a blend of refined crude oil and biomass materials. Diesel can make a big difference for your commercial business, especially if you work with a local expert to make your fuel accessible on your job site with personalized, reliable delivery.
- What vehicles are powered by diesel? According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, diesel fuel works well with motor vehicles that use compression ignition engines, like freight and delivery trucks, trains, buses and boats, as well as agricultural, construction, and military vehicles. Even some cars and light trucks can be equipped with diesel engines.
- What about other types of equipment? In addition to diesel vehicles, diesel fuel is also used in diesel-engine electrical generators. Around the world, many industrial facilities, large buildings, institutional facilities, hospitals, and electric utilities have diesel generators for backup and emergency power supply.
- How does diesel fuel impact the environment? Diesel fuel used to contain high amounts of sulfur, which is a harmful emission, but in 2006, the government began phasing in requirements that reduced the sulfur content of diesel fuel available in the U.S. Today, all diesel fuel sold for on-highway usage in the U.S. is ultra-low sulfur diesel (ULSD), with a sulfur content of 15 parts per million or less. Most diesel fuel intended for off-road use is also ULSD.
- How can diesel fuel benefit my business? It all comes down to productivity and efficiency, which can help you save big on your business costs. With the diesel fuel your business needs available to you on-site, your employees won’t have to stop working to locate a filling station – and that saved time translates to increased productivity. Say goodbye to spending hours managing paperwork to document fueling receipts or track fuel usage and costs.
What to look for in a diesel fuel provider
- Diesel experts. All our professionals are thoroughly trained and experienced in the safe handling and delivery of diesel fuels.
- Personalization. At Fredericks Fuel, we know that your business fuel needs are unique. Even if two businesses are in the same industry, their fuel requirements are specific to their circumstances.
- Customization. Our commercial fuels experts will thoroughly discuss what your business does, how you use diesel to accomplish your goals, and any unique needs like seasonal demand for your services. We take all that information and create a customized diesel fuel delivery schedule.
Whatever your industry, we can deliver gasoline, on- or off-road diesel to your North Jersey job site in a way that works best for you!

Which type of water heater is best for you?
Water heaters can sometimes be “out of sight, out of mind.” You probably don’t spend much time thinking about your water heater, unless it’s giving you trouble. Unfortunately, this type of equipment doesn’t last forever and if your appliance is more than a decade old, it may be time to begin thinking about upgrading.
There are several types of water heaters on the market today, and that can be overwhelming for homeowners looking to upgrade their water heating systems. Read on to learn more about the water heater options available nowadays, and which appliance might best fit the needs of your household.
Tank vs. tankless water heaters: What’s the difference?
One of the biggest changes in the water heating industry in the last decade is the availability of new technologies that make getting on-demand hot water easier and more efficient than ever! Both conventional storage tank style water heaters and tankless water heaters can make good sense for typical homeowners, depending on their priorities.
- A storage tank water heater is the conventional type of water heater you’re probably most familiar with. These types of water heaters come with a storage tank for housing warmed water. Residential water heater tanks can range in size, but generally hold somewhere between 20 to 80 gallons of water in a reservoir. When the tap on a household sink or shower “requests” hot water, the water heating system releases already-warmed water from the top of the tank. As the hot water is released and used up, the appliance heats additional water to be ready and waiting.
- A tankless water heater is especially efficient, making it a great option for homeowners looking for lower hot water bills. A tankless water heater saves energy because it avoids so-called standby heat losses. In other words, you aren’t paying to keep water heated when it’s not in use. Instead, the water is quickly heated on-demand when you need it. Another perk of having a tankless water heater is that it takes up far less real estate in your home, with no storage component.
Expert water heating installation by Fredericks Fuel
In addition to tank water heaters by Bock and Peerless Indirect, we install high-efficiency tankless water heaters. Traditional tank water heaters make for an easy switch out from your old water heater. A new tankless model can provide virtually unlimited hot water and generally lower water heating costs.
Quality water heating is essential to home comfort
Our equipment experts can help you choose the water heater that makes the most sense for you. At Fredericks Fuel, we offer the highest quality water heaters in West Milford, Oak Ridge, Sparta, Wantage, Riverdale, and the surrounding towns – with expert installation.
No matter which kind of water heater you select, you can depend on Fredericks Fuel to install it professionally for years of trouble-free use. We look forward to welcoming you as a new customer of Fredericks Fuel & Heating Service!
What Is Heating Oil?
Is modern heating oil right for you?
How is modern heating oil different from traditional fuels? Heating oil has evolved and changed a lot over the last few generations, so it makes sense if you are not quite sure what today’s heating oil even actually is, despite the fact that heating oil has proven to be an efficient, reliable heating fuel for homes and businesses in northern NJ for many decades. Read on to learn more about how heating oil can help you enjoy peace of mind and affordable comfort – with the help of Fredericks Fuel!
Heating oil FAQs: What IS heating oil, anyways?
Here are some of the most common heating oil questions we hear. If you have a different question, please reach out and one of our fuel experts will be happy to help you.
- Does heating oil affect the environment? In more recent years, heating oil has been reformulated to be a cleaner-burning fuel. That means it has evolved to become more eco-friendly and energy-efficient, which is good news for both the environment and heating oil consumers – since that makes it cheaper and helps you reduce your carbon footprint.
- What are modern heating oil appliances like? Modern heating oil technology has helped pave the way for more compact and efficient heating oil appliances. Today’s boilers and furnaces are way less bulky, and are about the size of a small three-drawer filing cabinet.
- Is heating oil efficient? Modern heating oil is especially efficient, with efficiency ratings as high as 95%! That means heating oil holds its own against competitor fuels. With heating oil, there’s never a need to cut back on your family’s warmth or comfort just to save a few bucks.
- What makes modern heating oil greener than before? Modern heating oil is more efficient and clean-burning because it is a combination of ultra-low-sulfur heating fuel and biodiesel. This type of fuel is made in America and considered a renewable energy resource, since it’s typically made from fats found in soy, corn and other vegetable oils. It can even incorporate recycled cooking oils from restaurants – and as we all know, there’s plenty more where that came from! In other words, modern heating oil has an abundant, renewable supply, making it affordable and increasingly eco-friendly

Aboveground tank service you can trust
As the weather starts to cool down, it’s a great time to check up on your heating oil tank – before you really need to put it to good use for the season. If you’re seeing any signs of wear and tear on your fuel tank or you have an older system, it may be time to consider an upgrade.
But, what factors should you consider when deciding what style and size of heating oil tank is right for your home? Read on to learn more about how the experts at Fredericks Fuel & Heating Service can help you determine what works best for you.
What size tank do you need?
Heating oil tanks come in a variety of sizes, and these days, you have more options than ever. While that can be overwhelming, we’re here to help you make sense of what’s available.
- Standardized sizing: Most aboveground heating oil tanks have capacities ranging from 100 to 500 gallons, with 275 gallons being the most commonly found tank size in residential homes. If you have an older model heating oil tank, you can typically gauge your tank size just by eyeballing its shape and length. Your expert technician can walk you through it by phone!
- Look for a label: Federal law requires that heating oil tanks be labeled with their capacity, so there should be a sticker on your tank that tells you its specifications.
- Tank shape: Heating oil tanks are generally shaped like a cylinder or an oval, unless you have a customized tank.
Factors influencing tank size needs
- Lifespan: Most older heating oil tanks have an anticipated lifespan of about 25 years, which means if your home was built prior to 1995, it is likely time for an upgrade. Fuel tanks have gotten more efficient and compact over the years, so you may not need the same size tank you initially had decades ago.
- Average household fuel usage: Your fuel experts can take care of estimating your usage based on household demand throughout the year. You’ll want to make sure your tank size is large enough for everyone to have their fuel needs met – and then some. Don’t forget about household members who may split their time in different homes, such as seniors who “snow bird” in Florida, or kids away at college.
- The half-full rule: An industry rule of thumb is to always keep your heating oil tank no less than half-full. This protects you from fuel runouts, and also builds in a little leeway, in case there is an unanticipated delay. Your fuel tank will need to be big enough to accommodate this safeguard.
Factors to consider alongside tank size
Whatever tank size you select, it’s important to also consider whether your chosen fuel company offers:
- Safe, secure installation of your fuel storage tank: When you heat with heating oil, you want to be confident that your fuel storage tank has been installed properly and is the right fit for your home, priorities, and heating needs.
- Longevity in the community: Having been in business since before the advent of home heating oil, Fredericks Fuel has installed literally thousands of aboveground storage tanks and we follow strict protocols to ensure that your fuel is stored safely.
- Quality to withstand freezing temps: Turn to Fredericks to ensure there will be no interruption in fuel flow when it gets extremely cold in West Milford, Oak Ridge, Sparta, Wantage, Riverdale and surrounding towns.
- Industry best practices: All of our installation technicians have been trained in the industry standard best practices for installing aboveground fuel tanks.
- Brands you can trust: We install tanks by such respected brands as Granby and Roth, so you can be confident that once your fuel tank is installed, you won’t need a replacement for many years.
- Tank protection plan: Replacing your outdated fuel tank is a big decision that you’ll rely on for decades to come. Heating oil tanks nowadays have improved tremendously over tanks from 20 years ago. In fact, today’s models are virtually leak-proof. For peace of mind, Fredericks Fuel also offers a tank protection service agreement through the ProGuard program, for both underground and aboveground fuel storage tanks.
Fredericks wants to be your home comfort company
To learn more about aboveground tanks, contact us today, and one of our equipment specialists will promptly respond. We look forward to welcoming you as a customer of Fredericks Fuel & Heating Service!
A variety of delivery options to meet your fuel needs
As our longtime customers will tell you, when you are a Fredericks Fuel customer, you can rest assured that we are here for you with dependable service and programs to make things easier. No matter what type of fuel delivery service works best for you, we are ready to respond to all of your home comfort needs with caring, expert customer service. Read on to learn more about the pros and cons of the delivery options we offer.
Automatic delivery gives ultimate convenience
We encourage our heating oil customers to arrange for automatic delivery, since it offers many PROS, including:
- Helping ensure that you never run out of fuel. Enjoy your comfort, worry-free.
- Taking the burden of monitoring off your shoulders. With auto delivery, we track your fuel usage and make a delivery before there is any risk of running out.
- It’s free! There is no extra charge for automatic delivery service, and it provides great peace of mind—contact us to learn more.
- Avoid the need for emergency services. We want you to know that there is always a technician available to you in case of a no-heat emergency, so call us any time of the day or night and we will respond quickly to solve the problem. With auto delivery, though, you won’t end up in a bind that requires an emergency rush delivery!
Our automatic delivery customers don’t typically report CONS associated with their fuel delivery, but it is important to note that automatic delivery requires:
- Keeping communication lines open. We monitor your fuel usage, but if something significant changes in your household, such as the number of family members, you should let us know ASAP, so we can factor all relevant data into our estimations.
- Keeping your fill pipe clear. Your fill pipe should be kept clear, regardless of what type of delivery service you have. However, with automatic delivery, it’s especially important to remember that technicians will need regular access to the area, which should be kept free of obstructions that could hinder delivery or pose a safety risk.
Reach out to us today to learn about convenient automatic delivery.
Will-call delivery lets you take control
If you prefer, you can also keep track of your fuel usage on your own, by checking your oil tank fuel gauge yourself and calling us before your oil tank gets too low. We call this method will-call delivery, which means that you call us when you need a fuel delivery. When you are on will-call, it is important to call us 48 hours in advance so you don’t run out of fuel.
The PROS associated with this method of fuel delivery are that:
- You have more autonomy. You’re in control of your delivery schedule.
- You’ll be more involved. Not everyone prefers relying on their fuel provider’s judgment.
There are also some CONS associated with this method, such as:
- You risk runouts and delays. A good rule of thumb for ordering your oil is to call us before your fuel level gauge goes below the quarter-tank mark.
- Runouts are a headache. If you run out, a service call may be needed to restart your system.
- The responsibility is yours alone. Instead of relying on your fuel provider for monitoring, you’ll be in charge of knowing when you’re due to refuel, and when you need to schedule your deliveries.
Contact us today if you are in need of a fuel delivery.

This is the year to go on a monthly payment plan!
As we all know by now, fuel prices rise and fall. Lately, heating oil, gasoline and other products derived from crude oil have been skyrocketing on the global market. These higher fuel prices are a burden for us all, but with Fredericks Fuel, you never need to worry about run-outs and delays – and we have several payment options available to our customers.
If you worry about rising prices, then our capped price program plan may be for you. This plan caps your next winter’s delivery price at $3.09 a gallon. Or, you may benefit from our monthly budget plan, which spreads payments over 11 months to make sure there are no surprises on your bill.
Below, read about how Fredericks can be by your side, helping you cope with the fuel price fluctuations.
What’s causing fuel price spikes?
When Russia invaded Ukraine, crude oil prices began to soar to over $100 per barrel for the first time in nearly a decade. This global conflict further compounds existing supply shortages and inflation. Fuel providers don’t profit from price hikes; we actually end up losing out when customers are forced to cut back on their fuel usage. This is one reason why it’s important to us to help make your budgeting easier and more straightforward.
Get a handle on home fuel costs with our monthly budget plan
If fuel price spikes are getting to you, or you’ve had enough of big payments over the holidays, take advantage of a monthly budget plan, which keeps your payments manageable all year long. Even when fuel prices are low, the cost to heat your home can quickly add up, especially in the winter. Our monthly budget payment plan offers relief by allowing you to pay the same amount each month.
Here’s how it works: We’ll estimate your annual heating bill and spread the cost over eleven months. At the end of the oil heating season, if you have used more fuel than the amount we have estimated, you’ll pay the difference. If you have used less fuel than estimated, we will send you a check for the difference.
- No hidden fees: No finance charges or costs to enroll;
- Bundle your benefits: You may include the cost of your service plan;
- No surprises: 11 equal monthly payments make budgeting easy and costs predictable, all year;
- Discount perks: 2 cents per gallon discount? Yes, please!
- Straightforward and fair: You only pay for the fuel you receive and use,
Stick it to fuel price spikes with our capped price program
Why pay more than necessary for your heating oil when you can lock in a fair rate now?
Here is how it works: Let’s say you pay for your heating oil now at $3.34 a gallon with your credit or debit card. This is the cost of your heating oil at a capped price of $3.09 a gallon, plus a 25-cent-per-gallon nonrefundable program fee. This fee makes it possible for your delivery price to go lower than the $3.09 capped price if market conditions permit. If you pay by cash or with a check, we offer a 5-cent-per-gallon discount off the nonrefundable program fee, so our total cost, when paid with cash or check, would be $3.29 a gallon.
- If at the time of your oil delivery, our price is lower than the capped price of $3.09 per gallon, you will be charged the lower price. IT’S A WIN-WIN SITUATION!
- No other costs, no clubs to join, no annual storage fees to pay, no commodity fees, no penalties, nothing else.
