Default running a gas line to a house Q:

i was wondering how much it would cost to run a gas line into a house. I went to Westbury and saw a house we liked but there is no gas line into the house. the agent said that it can be done but doesnt know how much it will cost. Has anyone done this and how much did you pay?

it depends if there is a gas line on your street. if theres not, then its going to be very very expensive. u can contact lipa/national grid to find out

i think i remember reading somewhere it was something like $5000 for the conversion if theres gas on the street. i think its a per-foot rate for how far the line has to be run, plus whatever the actual installation is. dont quote me on the price though. i think i actually read about that here on this forum within the last couple months, so maybe try doing a search here

I'm in E.Islip and Keyspan wanted 20g's to run a gas line. I had LP done instead. 1/20th of the cost. Gas stops at Montauk Hwy for us and we were too far away. Good luck.

Basicially...the first 100 ft are no cost...then it is $70 a foot after that. Yes...$70 a foot!! I am 1800 ft from the nearest gas line...so its another mortgage to get hooked up!

so i called national grid and they said that there is a gas line right out the front door and it wont cost me anything to run the line to the house because it's within 100ft. they are also running a promo on a gas burner for 1000.

Good for you! Never hurts to ask...

My last house was 1/2 mile away from the nearest main, so I skipped it LOL
