As the State begins to reopen, we have also reopened our office and services to normal business, as normal can be during these difficult times. Our office will be reopened on June 15, 2020 for walk in business. As our entry area is small, only one customer may enter at a time and we do request that a mask be worn during your visit. Our recommendation to our customers is call first to request an appointment so no one is left standing outside in wait. We will accept cash payments; however, we prefer that another type of payment be made. The transference of cash increases the risk to you and our employees in handling money, please take this into consideration when making your payments.
Our drivers will continue to not accept cash payment on delivery. As the drivers are on the road all day and in and out of their vehicles, it is more difficult for them to wash their hands, put masks on and off, or protect themselves against the virus. Payment arrangements should be made with the office when your order is placed.
Our service technicians are provided with proper PPE to enter and service your heating and cooling needs in your home. We do request for technicians to have direct access to your system if possible. Allow our technicians to complete their work while maintaining distance and make payment arrangements with our office staff so the technician can avoid person to person contact.
Except with these adjustments, business is open as usual for all your needs. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our office for further information.
Is the summer heat weighing you down? Bay State Fuel Oil has the expertise and certification to install or replace any air conditioning unit in the Western Massachusetts area that your home requires.
With constantly improving technologies, efficiencies and energy savings abound. If you are looking to upgrade your equipment, you can save big on energy costs. Replacing an air conditioner from the ‘70s can result in 30% to 50% less energy, and if your equipment is 10 years old or so, you can save 20% every year in energy costs.
The Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) on new systems has a minimum requirement of 13. Older models generally range from SEER ratings of 6 or less. There are even some models of ductless mini-splits that have reached SEER ratings of 30.5!
Mini-splits are a great option for people to cool their homes. Rather than a traditional central air conditioning system, mini-splits do not require ductwork, potentially saving thousands on installation costs. With one small outdoor unit working in conjunction with a zoned indoor unit, they effectively release cool air efficiently throughout the house.
