Costs and rebates
If you currently heat your home with propane, you may not need to replace your heating equipment or water heater. However, if you do not have natural gas appliances or heating equipment, a plumbing or heating contractor will likely charge for the conversion and related work.
If you now use fuel oil, you will need to invest in new heating and water-heating equipment, which would be installed by a qualified contractor.
There may be a cost for service installation from Alliant Energy, but there is no cost for meter installation.
Digging or excavation
Some digging may be necessary to install the natural gas equipment on your property. We will make every effort to make sure your property is not damaged. If necessary, we will re-seed and fill with black dirt at no cost to you.
Propane or fuel oil tank removal
For your safety, removal should be handled by your local propane or fuel oil dealer.
