Question DetailsAsked on 1/1/2015

Hooking up natural gas in my home in Glendale, AZ

We currently do not have natural gas, so I'm trying to find out (1) IF we can even get natural gas in our area, (2) how much it would cost to get it to the house and (3) if I wanted to do multiple things (range, fireplace, grill, etc.), what that would cost. Does anyone know any of this? I thought SW Gas might be a good resource, but their website is geared to existing customer, not new ones.

Southwest Gas does look to be the natural gas provider in your area - and you are right about the website being pretty minimal. Call their customear service department to confirm if your specific address is served, what the service connection fees are, what the deposit is, if they connect at the street or at a meter at the house (far more normal), and if they provide the meter (usually yes) or plumber has to install (unusual).
Then, Search the List under Plumber to find plumbers with good reviews to call and get estimates on hooking up to the meter (actually, plumber does his part first, gas company hooks onto it or occasionally to a line laid by the plumber to the street) and running gas line within your house to the various locations - grill, furnace, water heater, fireplace, range, and typically to the laundry area also even if you intend to use electric, so it is there for when you sell the house. There is a search location on the Southwest Gas website for appliance installers and plumbers on their website to find a list of local ones in your area. You can see some prior questions with responses on ballpark costs to run gas withint the house at the Home > Plumbing link in Browse Projects, at lower left - or easier, check the link below this questions and subsequent links below those questions, or enter the search word - gas service - in the Ask box and go to similar-looking questions there. Cost can vary widely by area, but assuming you are in the normal subdivision area (not out on a bluff or something), service connection fees generally run (nationwide) in the $250-1500 range for normal length runs, security deposits $0 (with good credit) to $500, and in-house plumbing and connection almost certainly $1000 range + (with open joist basement or crawlspace access) on up to $3000 ballpark with harder to plumb situation, including drywall repair and painting of holes to run the piping - not including any heating appliances or gas fireplace insert.
