Linda saved more than $9,000 over two winters thanks to a new, efficient natural gas heating system installed in her Manhattan apartment building. Free from high oil prices and scheduling deliveries, she can now focus on the savings.
"I have never regretted it. Not for one minute. This is a much easier way to go." – Linda Goldberg, property owner, Manhattan
Michael is saving big on heating costs after he switched from oil to natural gas heat. The upgrade will pay for itself with hundreds of dollars in energy savings each month.
"It costs a fraction of what oil was costing. The new system works better, it's much quieter, and it heats the house better."
– Michael Allen, homeowner, Chappaqua, N.Y.
Ralph was burning a lot of oil at the 171-unit building he owns in the Bronx. Now that he's converted to natural gas heat, he expects to see a 30 percent savings on fuel costs.
"Green is always good," he said. "I'm delighted that I'm burning a cleaner fuel alternative and finding a cost savings. It's really a win-win."
– Ralph DellaCava, property owner, Bronx, N.Y.
Steven converted 30 buildings in the Bronx in time for last winter. The buildings, which range in size from 21 units to 109 units with nine stores, had been burning #4 and #6 oil. Now with cleaner, greener, and more economical natural gas heat, "the savings are huge," he said. This winter, his heating bills were slashed in half, and he's now saving well over a million dollars collectively across his properties.
"It's absolutely one of the best things you can do," he said. Finkelstein, who has another 15 buildings in the pipeline to convert, recommends that other property owners consider converting from oil to natural gas heat. "They're insane not to do it."
