Heating System Services:
Designed to help with emergency "no heat" services. Clients who are eligible for Fuel Assistance and own their homes can have their heating systems repaired. Services also available to tenants if both they and their landlords are eligible for Fuel Assistance. If the system cannot be repaired, assistance with the replacement can also be provided. Routine cleanings are not provided unless there are funds available after the heating season is over. If you need service call 413-418-3664 Mon-Friday 7 am-4:30 pm. If you need emergency service nights, weekends or holidays you may call a contractor directly to arrange for service. Please ask the contractor if they contract with BCAC before you have work done. Only contractors who contract with BCAC can be paid. If you arrange for your own service, please call the office on the next business day so that a work order may be issued.
