For various reasons states and cities are phasing out fossil fuel use in commercial buildings. The preferred source is green electric options. Conversions of aging buildings to accommodate eco-friendly electric boilers provide hot water to tenants. New Jersey’s Department of Environmental Protection recently proposed a rule that would require thousands of apartment buildings, schools, and government buildings to replace heating systems with electric boilers.
Switching to electric boilers can reduce health risks often associated with greenhouse gases, nitrogen oxides (NOx), carbon monoxide (CO), and nitrous oxide (N2O), volatile organic compounds (VOCs), sulfur dioxide (SO2), and particulate matter (PM).
Key issues to evaluate include power availability and access.
