Can I save money using natural gas to heat my home?

Yes, you can lower your heating bill by making the switch. The actual amount of your savings will vary upon the efficiency rating of your new natural gas equipment and market forces that drive the price of heating fuel. For example, heating a typical 2,000 square foot home with natural gas heat can save up to $2,000 annually when compared to heating with oil. NYSEG can help you calculate your savings CLICK HERE.

How much will it cost to have natural gas installed?

Depending upon the distance of the available gas main to your home, NYSEG may be able to provide a gas line to your home without any additional cost beyond the fee. However, in some cases there may be a portion of the cost you will have to pay before the gas line can be extended to your home.

How much will it cost to switch to natural gas?

The price of each installation can vary greatly upon the type and efficiency level of equipment and other factors unique to each home. Please call us to evaluate the options and pricing available to you for your home including the scope of installations. Are you looking to switch to a new heating system? Starting with small appliances like a gas dryer or stove? Let's assess together.

Where will NYSEG install my gas meter?

Service lines will be constructed to the closest, most suitable meter location (often in the front corner of the home, away from the driveway, or near another meter). If the customer prefers an alternate location than the one NYSEG selects, the customer is responsible for the cost of service from NYSEG's selected location to the one of their choosing. The free allowance is measured from the edge of the public right of way.

Will I need a licensed plumber to do the work?

Yes! You will need to hire a licensed plumber or HVAC contractor (we do both!) for the installation of the gas lines and gas fired equipment inside your home.
