There are many older homes in Hudson Valley that have oil burning furnaces, boilers, and fireplaces. Although most of us live north of New York City, air pollution is still a problem to be concerned with. Equally, high heating bills are for any New York state resident.
You can find reports that talk about the air pollution in New York City causing over 5% of deaths. But did you know that one of the main pollutants that causes these deaths comes from the No. 6 or No. 4 heating oils still burning in the city?
Almost 9,000 buildings in Upper Manhattan alone are still burning this type of oil. They are literally causing more than 85% of the city pollution.
This is why in 2011 the city began phasing out the lower grade heating oils in every building. By 2030, even No. 4 oil will be gone. Many are converting from oil to natural gas now.
