New York, Say Goodbye To Your Gas And Oil Furnaces

The daily high on Christmas Eve and Christmas is expected to be in the 20s here in the capital region. Not only do you need to make sure you bought all your friends and family their gifts, but you also need to buy oil for the stove. In the relatively near future, that will not be the case in New York State.

If you currently use oil, gas or propane to heat your home, changes are imminent as these types of stoves are phased out from New York and the process could go into effect within 2 years.

According to the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC), the New York State Climate Action Council has finalized its plan for a nation-leading climate law. These include moving away from fossil fuel burning stoves by 2025 for new residential construction and 2028 for new commercial construction.

One way to achieve this in New York homes and businesses is to push state building codes to require that homes and commercial buildings be built to zero-emission and high-efficiency standards without the use of fossil-fuel burning appliances .

This plan is a bold, monumental achievement not just for New York State, but for the nation and the world, one that focuses on equity and climate justice in all sectors, creates opportunity for all, and ensures we have a workforce that lives up to the challenge Transition can be managed as seamlessly as possible in our new clean energy economy. – DEC Commissioner Basil Seggos

According to, if you have fossil fuel heaters in your existing home, you don’t need to make any immediate changes. If your unit fails after 2030, you must replace it with an emission-free system. Read the summary of the scoping plan HERE.
