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.
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.
Other Benefits of a High-Efficiency Heating System
Increased home resell value
Better comfort and more even heating
More peace of mind for your family
Decreased cost of repairs and emergency service
Higher reliability in your home heating system
Thousands of dollars in lifetime savings
