For customers who already have a natural gas service line on their property, converting to natural gas heat is a simple 3-step process: Contact PECO, schedule an appointment with your heating contractor and return the rebate form and paid receipt once the installation has been completed.
Customers without a natural gas service line have a few additional steps, including determining whether a service line is available.
