As many companies push for normalcy by fully restarting their businesses, we are working hard to keep our employees and customers as safe as possible. Our office will continue to accept one walk-in customer at a time. We respectfully request that walk-in customers to wear a mask when entering to help ensure that our space is as safe as possible. Please give the office a quick call if you plan to stop by for a visit. We will do our best to have any paperwork ready and waiting for you upon arrival. We are now accepting cash payments, as well as credit cards, debit cards, checks, and online transactions.
In addition, our drivers will now accept cash for fuel delivery. Please have exact change to minimize your contact with our drivers, whose protection is limited to social distancing and PPE. If you do not have exact change or would prefer contactless payment, we will be happy to arrange a different settlement method prior to your delivery.
Our service technicians are provided with the proper PPE to enter your home and service your heating needs. Before your service appointment, Bay State Fuel Oil office staff will confirm the safest way for our technician to enter your home to provide the service you have requested. If our technicians need to come into your living area, we request that a safe social distance is met and that you wear a mask as well. This will help us achieve our goal of keeping both our customers and our employees safe.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our office. Starting October 1, 2020, our office will be available for seasonal hours of 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on Saturday. We appreciate your continued support and patience during these unprecedented times.

Easy Ways to Save Energy this Spring
1. Get a Programmable Thermostat
Switching from a manual to a programmable thermostat is a great way to help save on energy bills. This allows you to conserve energy by setting the indoor temperature higher when you’re not home, or lower at night when it cools down.
2. Cook Outdoors
Spring is the perfect time to get outside and get grilling! Cooking outside, or eating cold foods, helps to save money on energy costs. Also, by not turning on the oven, you’re helping to keep your home cool and comfortable.
3. Weatherproof Your Home
Make sure to caulk your windows and insulate doors to keep your home at the best temperature for you and your family. On very warm days, close your window treatments to keep your home cool so your air conditioning unit can run less frequently.
4. Turn on Bathroom Fans
Turn on your bathroom fan while you shower to pull any excess heat and humidity from your home. You should also consider switching to a low-flow showerhead model to cut your water usage in half.
5. Schedule an A/C Tune-Up
Beat the rush and have peace of mind knowing your A/C will work when you need it most. Schedule an A/C tune-up to help your system run at maximum efficiency to help keep your home cool while using less energy. Bay State Fuel Oil offers tune-ups to keep your system running at peak efficiency.
