Theresa Holl…, Home Buyer in Brooklyn, NY

What is the average cost for converting a one family home in Brooklyn from oil to natural gas?

Asked by Theresa Hollers, Brooklyn, NY Sat Dec 24, 2011

We are in the process of buying a house and need to convert this one family home (1200 square feet) from oil to natural gas. Our hot water heater is in the boiler, which means we will have to run the boiler in the summer for hot water...

Dear Theresa:

The cost to replace a heating system in that size house would usually be about $5,000.00. If you want to separate the hot water, that would cost you an additional $1,500.00. This is also assuming you would use the existing pipes and heat delivery (hot water/steam). You may be able to convert the existing system to gas which would save you money.

You should contact National Grid and see what types of special incentives they are offering to people who switch from oil to gas and then have 2 or 3 licensed plumbers give you estimates for the conversion. If I can be of further assistance, please let me know. Good luck!

I would also contact the gas company to see if they are offering any incentives, free burner, etc. If yes, then contact a few plumbers to get quotes for the plumbing costs.

Good luck
