Anyone have any idea on what it costs to convert a electric range to gas? I have a gas washer/dryer/waterheater and want to move the gas line to the kitchen. I have a crawl space to there wont be much of a problem with access. Pretty much need a contractor to move the lines. Anyone do anything like this? Ballpark costs?

just have to tie in at the washer/dryer and run a line to the kitchen, shouldnt cost much at all, depending how far it is, $100- $200

Thanks a lot. Did you guys use a contractor or did you do it yourselves? Any permits involved?

You could do it yourself, It wouldnt cost more than $20, no permits involved.

We had this done when we bought our house. I think it was 80 bucks to run the pipe and another 40 for the electrician to convert the 220v for the range to a 115v outlet for the gas stove. Call a plumber to do the gas line, not a contractor. The oven is a separate unit and is still electric. Gotta love cookin with gas. [:)] We actually did the same thing in our laundry room a year later when we converted to a gas dryer. Of course this was the year befor gas prices went all nutty last summer and we had a couple gas bills in the hundreds. All back to its cheap normal self now though.

BTW, we did need to pull a permit, was pretty cheap though. I also prefer to leave things that could blow up my house to professionals. [:D]

Had to get a permit. Plumber got the permit and did the work for the $75.

deleted because I'm a moron. Maybe I shouldn't be working with explosives?

Are you sure you want to?? Gas is projected to go way up in price over the next few years. Existing fields in the US are getting tapped out, and new ones aren't keeping pace with demand.
