Gas for Homes > Steps to Upgrade

Follow these simple steps to enjoy the comfort and warmth of natural gas at home:

1Check availability of natural gas in your area or call UGI at 800-276-2722.

2. Calculate potential cost savings and explore rebates and savings that make converting even more affordable.

3. Call 800-276-2722 and speak with a UGI home conversion representative. He or she will help you with the next few steps.

COMMITMENT TO START

UGI designs service to meet your equipment needs and provides estimated timing and cost (if any) for installation of the natural gas line. You’ll receive a customer agreement letter to sign and return that authorizes the service order.

UTILITY LOCATES

UGI paints marks on or near your property, locating water, phone, sewer and electrical lines, as well as the gas main in the street. We then select the best proposed route for the new gas service line to your house, as well as the meter location.

LINE INSTALLATION

UGI installs a service line from the street to your home. If digging is required, our crew backfills the hole. (NOTE: UGI is NOT responsible for private lawn restoration.)

EQUIPMENT CONNECTION

You select a contractor to install your high-efficiency natural gas appliance(s) and connect the equipment to the meter. Find a contractor using our HVAC contractor locator.

ACTIVATION

When you’re ready, UGI or your contractor activates your gas service.

4. Set up your online account; consider programs including budget billing and AutoPay to make paying your gas bill easy and affordable.
