Programs and Solutions: Residential Conversion

For Washington Gas, a residential conversion involves switching a customer’s home from another fuel source to natural gas. Customers are able to enjoy indoor appliances such as natural gas cooking ranges, fireplaces, furnaces, water heaters and dryers. They can also benefit from outdoor appliances such as grills, patio heaters, outdoor lighting, pool/spa heaters, outdoor fireplaces and generators. Natural gas conversions often result in lower utility bills, high-efficiency appliances and a more comfortable and efficient home.


  • Homeowners



Natural gas appliances offer greater convenience and a reliable energy source, and deliver substantial savings on utility costs throughout the year. In addition to reduced operating costs, high-efficiency natural gas appliances are better for the environment.
