Long Island Power Authority (LIPA), is an electricity company, so probably won’t be much help when it comes to converting from oil heating to gas heating, but it might be worth enquiring with them yourself. You can find out how by clicking here (www.lipower.org/residential/custserv/contact.html).

Although not directly related you may be interested in their REAP (Residential Energy Affordability Partnership) scheme (www.lipower.org/residential/custserv/fa-reap.html).

KeySpan, on the other hand, are a gas company and they run a scheme called Be Green with National Grid Natural Gas Heating (www.powerofaction.com/conversion/). As you’re asking about LIPA I assume you fall into KeySpan’s NY Metro Area (www.powerofaction.com/gcnationalgridincentiveoffermetrony/), which is handy as there will be nearby gas lines, so there is the possibility of being hooked up for gas. On this same page you’ll find all sorts of information and downloadable documents about whether you are eligible for assistance. But before you get your hopes up, the service will not be totally free.

This is because customers are required to pay for installation of heating equipment, state and local taxes are not included and may apply. The actual savings on heating equipment vary by make and model ordered. So, while they may help with equipment costs, it may still be up to you to arrange for installation.
But you will save money as your oil carrying pipes in the house can be converted to carrying gas.

I recommend contacting them directly, click here to find out how (www2.nationalgridus.com/contact/choose_region.jsp?sect=/cont).
Ultimately converting oil to gas heat will cost you anywhere from $2,000 to $9,000, depending on the area you live in and the location of gas mains and meters without financial assistance.

HI, I do not think so it is possible. It is not safe too. Because working process is totally different.

I do not know the answer to your question, but I wanted to inform you that it isn't safe to post your address on the internet. I don't want to offend you in any way, and do not want someone to take advantage of you.

Of course you'll have to have a gas line run to your house by a gas company. And then in the house by a license plumber first, unless you already have gas. You can have a plumber pipe the gas line to the furnace and he'll have to change out the oil burner to a gas burner.
