Local homeowners are getting into the fall spirit by apple picking, going on hayrides, raking leaves, and carving pumpkins. That means one thing: winter is well on its way here in Massachusetts, and Bay State Fuel Oil has compiled some tips to ensure that you have a comfortable and safe transition into the coldest months of the year.
Steps for Winter Property Preparation
Schedule a heating equipment tune-up.
If you haven’t had your furnace, boiler, or water heater serviced lately, it’s a good idea to have it inspected by a qualified and licensed HVAC service provider like Bay State Fuel Oil. Our technicians are trained to catch any minor issues before they turn into a big deal, and we can even boost your system’s efficiency, so you’ll spend less on fuel this year.

Replace old equipment with a high-efficiency model.
Upgrading your home comfort equipment is the best thing you can do to reduce energy bills and no-heat headaches. Replacing your declining equipment with a newer model can shrink your fuel and repair bills by upwards of 30% annually! What’s not to love?
Consider enrolling in a service plan.
Check out our service plans, which will provide you with comprehensive heating coverage at one low rate. If you keep tabs on your home comfort budget, you’ll be surprised at how much a flat-rate coverage program will help you save. Our plans include a lengthy list of covered parts, access to around-the-clock emergency service, and the annual tune-up recommended in the previous paragraph.
