Do you need to have a brand new natural gas service line installed on your property? You’re in the right place!

When it comes to your home, you want to use the best materials and products available. When you add natural gas to your residence, you’re adding the safe, economical, efficient, clean and reliable selection for your heating needs. It’s more affordable than other home heating options and it’s better for the environment. But before a gas service line can be installed, the following guidelines must be met:

  • The foundation must be completed, and the selected meter site must be marked, backfilled to final grade and free of obstructions such as building materials, dirt piles and scaffolding.
  • The house must be piped before requesting a service line.
  • For existing buildings, the house piping must be installed and/or proof of purchase of natural gas heating equipment must be provided.
  • All necessary permits must be obtained from the proper authorities prior to installation of a service line.

Typically, meters will be installed outside the residence, opposite the driveway, and no further than five feet from the front corner of the house. However, we may install the meter in another location that we determine to be reasonably accessible, convenient and safe.

Get Started

In some cases, customers are required to pay for service line installation. Once your application is submitted, a representative will complete a field investigation to determine if payment will be required. After you have applied, paid for your service line (if required), and met all required steps, contact the New Services Department for scheduling purposes:

Excess Flow Valve

Where conditions permit their use, National Fuel can install an Excess Flow Valve (EFV) on your natural gas service line (the underground line that runs from the main line to the meter).
