REMODELING A HOME
Switching to natural gas Q&A
Send an Email with your street address, and we’ll tell you whether natural gas is accessible to your home.
Depending on the distance between your home and our natural gas lines, we may still be able to serve you. However, you may have to pay a portion of the cost for extending our natural gas line to your home. Contact your respective natural gas supplier for assistance.
Natural gas is an efficient way to heat your home and water:
- With a natural gas furnace you can feel the warmth. A natural gas furnace delivers air that’s as much as 25 degrees warmer than an electric heat pump.
- You can expect your natural gas furnace to last twice as long as an electric heat pump.
- Converting an electric water heater to natural gas saves the same amount of carbon dioxide emissions annually as recycling 1.7 tons of waste.
- You may be eligible for rebates. Check the links below for more information.
- Federal tax credits are available if you make updates and purchase new, ENERGY STAR rated appliances that qualify. To see if you may be eligible for a tax credit, visit www.energystar.gov

Propane requires you to have a storage tank on your property, and you have to pay your supplier every time it’s filled.
With natural gas, you don’t need a storage tank. It is delivered to your home through underground pipes as you need it. You pay for natural gas only after you use it.
Switching your propane furnace, boiler, water heater, range or dryer to natural gas is easy. You may not have to buy new appliances … a qualified contractor can adjust your propane appliances to run on natural gas. Locate a qualified natural gas contractor or contact your local natural gas provider for a referral.
