Depending on where in Australia you're moving, you may need a natural gas connection. The good news is gas connections are not typically shut off between tenants if one has already been established, which means all you'll need to do is open a gas account with a retailer. That's where we come in!
Choose a plan that suits you, and we'll handle the rest!

How do I know if I need gas connections?
There's a good chance you will need a gas connection in your new home, but it does depend on the kinds of amenities the house comes with – does the kitchen come with gas stove tops? Is the water heated through gas or electricity? Does the house come with ducted heating?
More than 70% of houses in Australia are either already connected to mains gas or use LPG bottled gas. An easy way to tell if your property is connected to gas pipelines is to look for a gas meter around the outside of your property, and if you're still not sure give HOOD a call on 1300 242 824.
I need to connect gas, what are my options?
Your options when choosing a gas provider depend on the state you live in. Victoria has 15 gas providers available, the most of any Australian state, though not every provider operates in all areas, and some will only provide a gas service if you also purchase your electricity from them. Some states and territories are regulated, and only one gas provider supplies all customers in the state.
If you live in a regional area, and don’t have access to ‘mains’ gas (natural gas delivered via pipeline), bottled LPG can usually be purchased and delivered to your door in most areas. There are a number of LPG providers to choose from.
What does it cost to get gas connected?
Gas providers generally do not charge a connection fee. Gas distributors however, are responsible for maintaining pipes and meters as well as reading meters, and do usually charge connection and disconnection fees which are passed on through your gas provider. These fees vary depending on the area you live, generally ranging between $10 and $50.
If you are a concession card holder, you may be eligible for a discount on supply and usage charges as well as connection and disconnection fees.
