If there is an area which you are considering, contact Natl Grid directly for an exact answer.

For example, where I am in Suffolk part of the area has natural gas lines, while the other part it doesn't.

Not always an easy thing getting answers from National Grid, lots of misinformation.

It's better than an anonymous message board.

You need to contact them with an exact address. Parts of my town have gas available while others don't.

Nearly every house has natural gas available. We have a line on my block the connection is actually in front of my house straight run to where oil burner and dryer is. Around 30 feet away and no I don't have it.

Only one person on my block is hooked up to it. It is 3k for line. And then I need to buy a gas burner, gas water heater, gas dryer and gas oven which is around 12k in stuff plus 3k for install. Then get rid of oil tank etc and remove old oil burner. Unless you have an old oil burner, old dryer old electric oven you will be replacing in next 2-5 years anyhow the savings are limited by switching. Although many estate sales all that stuff is junk and switching when you buy makes perfect sense

You have to walk down the curb on both sides of your block you can see the actual gas hook up in the grass strip if you look close and they also spray paint sometimes a small symbol on curb there is gas. I have both in front of my house. The spray paint is to alert folks and sprinkler guys etc watch out.

You don't need to have a gas dryer. You can have natural gas and still have an electric dryer.

Don't I wish. No, it's not available everywhere. Especially in Suffolk, even in Nassau.
