Throughout New York, there are two types of heating systems found in most homes: the forced-air furnace or the hydronic boiler. Both types of heaters have long histories, going back to times when they both used coal as fuel. In fact, when we started in business back in 1930, we delivered the coal furnaces in buildings burned to generate heat.
Today, most boilers and furnaces run from natural gas, which is also one of our specialties, as we’re an ESCO (energy service company) that allows customers to purchase their home’s natural gas directly from us. Furnaces and boilers can also operate from electricity, which generally makes them more expensive to run.
