Administration Releases Half A Billion In Emergency Heating Funds

The Department of Health and Human Services is releasing the $454 million in funding for the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program to the states. Home energy prices, most notably for propane, have spiked in recent weeks, reaching record levels as frigid weather blanketed much of the country. National snow depth as of 7 a.m., Jan. 31: Source: Intellicast The average price of a gallon of residential propane for the week ending Jan. 20 hit $2.96, according to the Energy Information Administration, up 60 cents from mid-October, the highest price ever recorded by the agency. Prices in the Midwest are even higher; on Friday, prices ended at $4.30 a gallon in the Midwest, down from a peak of about $5 a gallon. Propane inventory in the Midwest stands at about two-thirds of its five-year average, and is 40 percent lower than this time last year. At the same time, cold temperatures have consumers using more propane than ever. To deal with the shortage, governors in many states have lifted limits on the number of hours commercial drivers transporting propane can travel. Drivers shipping propane across 24 states can stay on the road beyond the number of hours usually allowed, under emergency orders issued this month. Under ordinary circumstances, drivers must take mandatory rest breaks after 11 hours behind the wheel. Many of the emergency measures allow drivers to stay on the road for as long as 14 hours before taking a break. In a letter to state agencies, Jeannie Chaffin, the director of HHSs Office of Community Services, said the additional money comes after many states contacted the department to warn them of the strain the cold weather was placing on LIHEAP budgets. Additional LIHEAP funding by state States in the upper Midwest and the Northeast will receive the bulk of the funding. New York will get an additional $50 million, while Illinois, Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania will each receive more than $20 million in new funds. Every state in the Union except Hawaii will receive at least seven figures in new funding; Hawaii stands to gain an additional $680,874 in LIHEAP funding, HHS said. In November, HHS allocated more than $2.9 billion for LIHEAP programs, anticipating that money would be budgeted by Congress. But the cold weather made additional funds necessary.

Be Aware Of Home Heating Issues

Posted on 31. Dec, 2013 by in Uncategorized

Here are the basic legal requirements as set forth by the state and city codes: All primary fuel-fired heating equipment installed in a residential unit, such as a furnace or space heater, must be able to maintain an interior temperature of at least 68 degrees at all times and is properly vented to the outside of the building, either by using a chimney, external stack piping that meets specific requirements, or a power vent. As for unvented, wall-mounted heating units, yes, they are legal for residential use in New York state, but are only permitted as a supplement to the primary heating source. Too often, rental property owners looking to save money have one of these installed in an apartment and are knowingly or unknowingly putting their tenants at serious risk of possible carbon monoxide poisoning if they fail to operate properly. We have been called in to inspect dwellings where this problem has been discovered, either by a tenant, the police department, fire department, etc., and if we see one of these units, we may be forced to shut that living unit down and remove the occupants until a proper heating system is installed. Let’s be clear – it’s never a pleasant duty for us to remove individuals or families from their homes, but when someone’s personal health, safety and well-being is put in serious jeopardy, we are required by law to take this type of action. For those living in rental units, your first call should be to the property owner when you have a heating problem before you contact our department. We’ve often found that owners are sometimes totally unaware that an issue has come up in one of their units and most would have gladly taken care of the matter quickly had they known about it. Only when the owner won’t respond or ignores a reported problem should a tenant call the department. But in doing so, the tenant should keep in mind that if an inspector finds a dangerous condition, it’s likely they will be ordered to leave the dwelling immediately, no matter what the weather conditions are and the home or apartment posted. Those heating with wall-mounted electric strip heaters don’t have carbon monoxide concerns, but our experience shows that many of these units take a lot of punishment, sometimes operating only part of the time, spark when turned on or are being used or are missing thermostats. Again, tenants should contact the property owner immediately and if there is no response from the owner within a few hours, then contact our department to request an inspection. Staying with the electrical front, we strongly discourage the use of small, portable electric heaters. They are designed for brief, temporary use in a limited area. Too often, people try to use them as a primary source if their regular system is inoperable. This practice not only will send your electric bills to the moon, it’s potentially dangerous if your electrical service cannot withstand the load. Ask any inspector or member of the fire department what they think of electric space heaters and you’ll get a pretty passionate response. Finally, the use of a gas-fired or an electric range to heat any area is horrifically dangerous. With natural gas you have a potential carbon monoxide problem and both electric and gas ranges can create a fire hazard. Public safety is our first concern when it comes to heating equipment. If simple, preventative measures are taken to keep systems maintained and in good working order, then our jobs are much easier and residents can live in safe and secure homes and apartment units.
