The New York State Legislature is set to make a major change to the way buildings are heated. By 2027, all newly built residential and commercial buildings of less than seven floors must be heated through electric heating systems. This shift is likely to be expensive, but there are options available for those who need help. If you have received an electric, gas, or heat disconnect notice, you may be eligible for emergency financial assistance.
Additionally, if you have a low supply of heating fuel or if your boiler or furnace is broken, you may qualify for help. It's important to note that this change only applies to newly built buildings. If you already own a home or business, you will not be required to switch to an electric heating system. However, it's worth considering the potential benefits of making the switch.
Electric heating systems are often more efficient than traditional systems and can save you money in the long run. As this change approaches, it's important to stay informed and understand your options. If you're in need of assistance, don't hesitate to reach out for help.
