Natural Gas: Clean, Affordable Hudson Valley Heating Solutions
The Hudson Valley’s cold winter temperatures necessitate near constant use of one’s heating system. It’s no wonder that residents are constantly looking for ways to easily and affordably heat their home while having the lowest environmental impact.
Nationwide, only about 8% of homes are heated with oil. More common is natural gas (approximately 50%), electricity (34%) and even less common is propane (6%). The vast majority of oil-burners are concentrated right here in the Northeast where they account for 31% of residential heating systems. That’s largely because of the region’s proximity to the ports where oil barges deliver their loads and the fact that oil was a cheaper option back when many homes were built. You’ll notice than many older homes throughout the Hudson Valley are oil-based, while newer developments tend to be gas-based.

Making the Switch – Positive Impacts of Converting to Gas Heat
Why consider switching from oil to gas? While there are certainly pros and cons to each heat source some of the most commonly cited benefits for converting to natural gas include:
- Convenience. Switching to natural gas means never having to worry about running out of oil. Since it’s delivered to your home via piping directly from the provider, you will never run out or risk not having it when you need it.
- Besides heating your home, natural gas can be used for a variety of household appliances, including your hot water heater, swimming pool heater, clothes dryer, fire place or stove. With a gas conversion you can consider updating your dated old kitchen with a new gas range – or adding an outdoor kitchen with a built in gas grill!
- Reduced Environmental Impact.Because gas is cleaner burning than oil, using it to heat has less impact on the environment. This also means that you will never have to remove oil or ash from your heating system’s interior ever again.
- Increased Home Value. Switching from oil to gas has an instant impact on your home’s value. If you’re looking for ways to add equity to your home, switching to a natural gas heating system is a good place to start.
