Tips for converting to natural gas

Switching to natural gas is easy. And the investment you make will quickly be recovered through the savings you'll see.

Tips for converting your home to natural gas:

  • Service line installation - WPS provides a portion of the service line — the pipe that runs between the gas main and meter. If more service line is needed, you will be responsible for the charge. Contact WPS at 800-242-9772 to learn about your options.
  • Excess flow valve - WPS installs an excess flow valve (EFV) on all new residential gas service lines. This valve automatically limits the flow of natural gas if a service line is cut.
  • Selecting a contractor - To upgrade your piping and equipment, choose a qualified contractor who follows all code requirements when switching to natural gas.
  • Heating equipment estimates - Get two or three quotes when replacing your furnace.

Builders and contractors can apply for new service or check the status of requests for all your building projects online.
