I'm moving into a new home this coming weekend and there is currently a flat top electric stove in the kitchen (not stove/oven combo). I really want a gas stove but heard it might be VERY expensive to replace out the electric. Does anyone have an idea of how this is done and how much it might cost (I'm not at all planning on doing this myself)?

The house currently is heated with gas but I'm not sure if there is a gas connection behind the current electric stove.

Thanks for your help!

First question is do you have a basement? If so a plumber can tell you if there is a gas line going up to the kitchen just by looking. If there is not one he could put one in very easily. If you don't have a basement thing get more expensive.

Most importantly for your family's safety, have only a licensed plumber perform this kind of work. NO handyman.

Thanks for the suggestions. We don't have a basement (one of a few downfalls of living in Texas). I'll definitely get a professional to do something like this!
