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.
It’s tax return season, and residents all over Western Massachusetts are getting refunds in the mail. But wait—don’t splurge your return too quickly. With a little ingenuity, you can multiply your tax return many times over. Keep reading this blog post by Bay State Fuel Oil’s HVAC experts to learn how to get more back this year than you ever have before.
Invest in High-Efficiency HVAC Equipment
Putting your tax return money into a new, high-efficiency furnace or boiler heating system will help you save more on energy and repairs for years to come! If you put this year’s tax return toward a new heating system during the spring, you’ll have plenty of time to schedule your installation before the cold weather returns once again.
How Much Can You Really Save with New Heating Equipment?
Furnace and boiler efficiency is measured in AFUE, or annual fuel utilization efficiency. If your current furnace or boiler runs at 70% efficiency and you upgrade to a furnace or boiler that runs at 95% efficiency, that represents a 25% decrease in your fuel oil bills each year!
Let’s Talk Numbers: How Many Dollars Can You Save with New Equipment?
That means that if your fuel costs are around $1,500 per year, you would save an average of $375 per year on fuel costs. Over a lifespan of about 20 years for the average heating system, that’s a total fuel savings of $7,500. That’s not even considering the reduction in service costs and repairs that the heating system will need.
