Conversion Checklist

Use this checklist to make the process as simple as possible:

number 1

Determine the Availability and Associated Cost to Get Natural Gas Service to Your House

If you know that a gas main line already exists near your house, or if you are a National Fuel customer already but don’t use gas for the appliance you are looking to convert, you can skip this step.

  • Call National Fuel at 716-827-2343 to determine the availability of natural gas service in your area.
  • Submit a Residential Natural Gas Application to National Fuel to get a cost estimate. You can apply by one of these methods:
    • Call 1-800-365-3234.
    • Mail your completed application to the address on the form.

number 2

Determine the Cost to Install a New Gas Appliance and Select a Contractor to Do the Work

Select a licensed heating or plumbing contractor who will install the new gas appliance(s) in your house. It’s your responsibility to have the internal housework completed, including:

  • Internal natural gas house line
  • Gas appliances (furnace, boiler, hot water heater, etc.)
  • Work with your contractor to select and order the equipment.
  • Confirm if the equipment is eligible for National Fuel’s Gas Conversion Rebate program.
number 3

Have National Fuel Install the Gas Main Line and/or Service Line to Your House

If you are a National Fuel customer already but don’t use gas for the appliance you are looking to convert, you can skip this step.

Submit the completed paperwork you received from your cost estimate in Step 1 to National Fuel in order to have a gas service line installed, including:

  • Response Form: Select the payment option and agree to the terms and conditions.
  • Conversion Agreement: This document confirms that you agree to have a natural gas appliance installed in your home.
  • Certificate of Compliance: This document verifies that your home meets the minimum home insulation standards.
    • Make your payment to National Fuel (if necessary).
    • Have the gas main line (if necessary) and service line installed by National Fuel.

Have the Gas Appliance(s) Installed by Your Contractor and the Gas Meter Installed by National Fuel

Schedule the installation of your new equipment with your contractor. Note: Prior to the gas meter installation, the gas line inside your house needs to be piped, tested and connected to the gas meter bar outside by your contractor.

Contact National Fuel at 1-800-365-3234 to schedule your gas meter installation. (Please allow for 5 business days.)
