The new home we are closing on soon is plumbed for a natural gas grill. We have a regular propane grill. I found a couple of "how to" sites online, but it is beyond what we would attempt ourselves. What types of companies do this, and does anyone have a specific person or company they'd recommend out of experience? Thank you.

Happen to see your post. While I can't help you with a company as I live in PA, I could tell you I worked in service for a propane company in my area for 8 years.

All you need to do is pull off the two knobs in front of the grill. Then you will see two nuts one on each side. Take them off as well. Next there should be a couple screws holding the burner in place. Remove them and pull out the burner.

Last step, take all the parts you just pulled out "expect nuts/screws" to your local propane dealer. They will replace the NAT, with Propane, give you back the parts in a day or so. Then just put the new parts back in your grill.

I know around here If the company sent us out to do something simple like that you would be charged a min, of 85.00 an hour + parts. They charge so much because if you think about it you can just go to wal-mart and buy a new grill for what you would pay to have an old one switched over..

Good Luck!!
Hope I was able to help.

We had to also order from home depot a weber that is specific for natural gas. After an exhaustive search and a handy husband that is the way to go. It isn't that easy for many to change propane over to natural. They ship free to home depot who assembles for free.
