Question DetailsAsked on 8/22/2014

How much would it approximately (and I truly mean rough) cost to run a new gas line 50 feet to a boiler?

Line will be run in an open basement. The boiler is new (less than a year) and runs on propane currently. Have received a rather high quote for running the line and seems out of place.

Sounds like just hanging black iron pipe from the wall or ceiling on hangers to the boiler, right - unless you have some odd code requirements that it be embedded in a wall, I would say $250 minimum, including connection to appliance and existing gas pipe in the basement (no excavation required), and top end should be about $500 I would say unless the access is pretty difficult. The materials (included in price range) for that job is less than $2/LF, so only about $100-150 materials with connections and shutoff valve and flex connection and such.

If code requires it be in the walls (which I have never seen for a basement with appliances in it) then probably more like $500-700 range if has to be put in with short pipe sections and flex tubing is not allowed in your area (is not in many or most areas).

This does NOT include the boiler conversion kit or installation in the boiler.
