EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW

Want to find out more about the Spring Creek Natural Gas Expansion project? How natural gas can provide the affordable comfort your home deserves? Or what to consider when converting or installing appliances? The answers to these questions and more can be found below.

WHAT ARE THE COSTS ASSOCIATED WITH SWITCHING TO NATURAL GAS?

There is no out of pocket cost for pipe installation up to your home when you opt into the expansion project the year your house is along the construction route. The only upfront cost homeowners will need to consider is converting appliances. You have one year to convert you appliances to natural gas from the time we finish setting your home’s natural gas line.

We are currently offering pre-conversion inspections to all Spring Creek residents along the 2021 identified construction route, to help you with the steps needed to convert your appliances. Call 775-404-3449 or email springcreekoutrach@swgas.com to schedule.

CAN MY EXISTING APPLIANCES BE CONVERTED TO USE NATURAL GAS?

Many appliances that are fueled by other energy sources, such as propane or heating oil, can be converted. A Southwest Gas representative can provide you with a list of licensed contractors who will be able to help you with this process.

WHAT IS THE PROCESS TO CONVERT MY HOME?

Convert your home to natural gas in three simple steps:

1. Southwest Gas will install a new service line to your home and set a natural gas meter.
2. A plumber or other contractor will complete the conversion process and obtain the required inspections and permits.
3. Once your home passes any inspections needed, we’ll turn on your gas.

Now you can start enjoying the many benefits of having natural gas in your home!
