Convert To Natural Gas

Natural Gas

Efficient and Dependable.

The Advantages of Natural Gas

Natural gas is convenient and economical. Plus, it burns much cleaner than traditional heating oil, so it’s better for both your home and the environment. Natural gas is the cleanest burning fossil fuel – doesn’t leave behind soot, ash or odor.


Current natural gas rates are substantially lower than heating oil, and natural gas customers don’t deal with the maintenance and equipment costs typically associated with oil heat, such as motors, pumps, filters, and permits. It is priced lower than oil or propane. You pay for what you use, when you use it. No tanks to fill for future use. No worries about running out. 


Natural gas is a reliable, domestic resource, piped directly to your home or business with no need to rely on costly fuel deliveries. It is delivered to your home through a pipeline system that is not commonly affected by weather or adverse conditions. That means natural gas eliminates the need for storage tanks, and the threat of oil spills from deliveries and soil contamination.

How To Convert To Natural Gas

You can learn more about converting your home to natural gas over here on the NYSEG website. 


First, you'll apply online or call them to get the ball rolling. Next, you will complete a commitment letter. You're telling them that you agree to connect a gas appliance to your home's new natural gas service within 90 days. If your home is 100 feet or less from a natural gas main, NYSEG will install the service from our main to your house for free. Service lines will be constructed to the closest, most suitable meter location (often in the front corner of the home, away from the driveway, or near another meter). If you prefer an alternate location than the one NYSEG selects, you are responsible for the cost of service from NYSEG's selected location to the one of your choosing.

NYSEG will swing by to confirm your service and meter design. After they install the service and meter, we get to work connecting your natural gas appliance - your heating system, oven/stove, or dryer. Once this is completed, an appointment with NYSEG will be scheduled to turn on the natural gas supply.

  • Can I schedule an appointment online?
    Not at this time, but you can get the ball rolling online. Just fill out this contact us form. We want to be as efficient as possible, so we rely on centralized scheduling. By giving us as much known information up front (what kind of service do you need, what are the issues, what times are most convenient for you, etc.), we can fit you with the best technician for your job.
  • When are you open?
    Always! Call us 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Every day. Every day of the week. At any hour. You'll always reach one of us. If we're in the middle of something, you may go to our recording, but please leave us a message and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
  • Where is your office?
    BODEK INC. is located near Green Bros. Apple Hills. (Apple trees surround our property.) Dimmock Hill Golf Course is just up the hill. Our mailing address is 195 Brooks Road, Binghamton, NY 13905.
  • What are your office hours?
    Our office is open Monday-Friday from 8am-4pm. While the office is closed for major holidays, we're available to you for emergency service 24/7.
  • Do you do that thing?
    We do it all! OK, maybe not all of it, but certainly a lot. Our main service disciplines are plumbing, heating, air conditioning and septic. But we also have portable toilets available for rental, and we offer snowbird services. When in doubt, just ask. Chances are if it's not something we can do, then we know someone who can.
  • What are your service areas?
    Our service locations include, but are not limited to, Binghamton, Chenango Bridge, Chenango Forks, Port Crane, Endicott, Endwell, Vestal, Johnson City, Owego, Apalachin, Newark Valley, Norwich, Cortland and beyond. Additional travel fees may apply.
  • What payment types do you accept?
    We accept VISA, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, cash and checks. Payment is due at time of service and can be made with your on-call technician.
  • Do you offer any discounts?
    We sure do! Keep an eye on our coupons page to see what promotions we currently have running. If you want to be sure you're in the savings loop, sign up for our emails and follow us on social media (facebook, instagram, twitter, etc.) Make sure you mention the promo code at time of scheduling.
  • Why is your quote higher than the competition?
    The short answer is we don't cut corners. If it's a repair you're in need of, we're trying to fix your problem the right way, to save you in the long run. If you're looking to do a new installation, we want to fit your home with the best solution for you. If you've been shopping around and you think our competitor is offering a similar service for much less, please talk to us. We will assess the quote discrepancy, explain your options, and work with you on the final price.
  • Are you hiring?
    We are always looking to add new talent. If you think you'd be a good fit, then jump over to our careers page and fill out our job application.
