Important Information About Connecting Your Gas

  • When you first apply for gas connections, new property electricity and gas connections can take up to 5 days, or up to 21 days if you need a new meter installed. Make sure you contact us in plenty of time so that your utilities will be connected in time for your moving date. Gas connections on weekends and public holidays incur extra fees. Read more about the timelines to connect to gas here: Gas New Connection Guide.
  • If your gas hasn’t been connected by the specified time, please contact us within 24 hours for an update on your new gas connection.
  • Under 2021 Victorian legislation all rental properties must have gas safety checks. These are to ensure no gas is leaking, which causes carbon monoxide. Before moving into a rental property, ensure these checks have been done.
  • All gas connection faults must be reported to the gas distributor. To find the distributor in your area, click here: Gas New Connection Guide.
  • You must provide us with all the correct details- street address, move-in date, location of meter, and MIRN (Meter Identification Reference Number). Failure to do so will result in delays and issues with connecting your gas.
  • Ensure you have taken care of any outstanding bills as failure to do could result in your new gas connection request being denied.
  • We do not compare all brands on the market to connect gas to houses and businesses. We have carefully selected our panel of Australia’s leading energy providers and will compare plans for ActewAGL, Covau, Tango Energy and Energy Australia gas connections.

FAQs About Gas Plans and Gas New Connections

A gas new connection usually takes slightly longer than it does to arrange your electricity connection. The first step is to cancel your existing property’s gas connection by contacting your energy provider. If you are moving home, you can either request that your current provider move your gas connection or give Move-In Connect a call to find a cheaper option for your new gas plan.

The steps below are an overview of a typical connection process. This may vary for your particular situation. You should talk to your retailer, distributor or a local gas fitter for a more thorough view of the connection process for your home.

The cost of the connection process varies depending on where you live and the complexity of the work required, so make sure you agree on a quote before the work commences.

  • Service line and meter installation (if required)

If you are building or moving to a home that has never had gas, you will need to contact a gas fitter to arrange a quote and discuss your preferred meter location. 

This needs to be completed 20 days before you move to make sure you have gas when you arrive, so contact a gas fitter, or arrange with your builder, in plenty of time. You will need to let them know which appliance you want to power with gas.

If your new home can be connected to the mains, your builder will lodge a request with the network distributor to install a service line or gas pipes from the street to your property. If there is no natural gas, you might be able to connect to LPG (bottled) gas.

The service line installation can take up to 20 days and must be completed before the meter can be installed. 

After that, the distributor will arrange the meter installation – make sure you discuss your preferred meter location so that they can incorporate this in the build and arrange it with the gas fitter and distributor.

  • Choose your provider and plan

To find the best value plan for your home you need to consider your unique energy needs. When comparing plans, you should look for low rates, energy bundles, flexible payment options, no lock-in contacts, no exit fees and rewards and incentives that suit your lifestyle, such as pay-on-time discounts or reward points.

  • Book a connection date

Once you have chosen your provider, you need to give at least 5 business days’ notice for your connection. You can book your connection date as early as possible (up to 20 days in advance if you can) so that any unforeseen issues or delays can be dealt with. Don’t worry – when you move with Move-In Connect, we’ll take care of it all for you!

  • Disconnect your current energy (if required)

Make sure to tell your current provider that you are moving so that they can issue a final bill and take a gas meter reading on the final day in your old house.

Read our guide for more information about the connection process.

An important part of the connection process is deciding on your preferred meter location. Your gas fitter or distributor will be able to advise you about the best places to install the gas meter.

The meter will need to be on the outside of your house in an easily accessible area so that a meter reading can be conducted. 

A lot of people opt to have the meter close to the electricity meter for convenience.

If you have a specific preferred meter location in mind, it’s important to discuss this with your builder or gas fitter early in the process so they can consider any potential issues and give you advice about an alternative location if necessary.

There are two types of gas meters in Australia:

  • Metric meter. These meters display the units of natural gas in cubic metres (m3). These are the most common types of meters.
  • Imperial meter. These meters display the units of natural gas in cubic feet (ft3). Imperial meters are currently being phased out and replaced with metric meters.

If you are moving home, make sure you locate your gas meter by asking your real estate agent or vendors to show you where it is. It is usually next to the house on the front left corner, however, this can vary. You will need to know where your meter is in order to arrange a gas connection for new houses.

If you are renting a new property, your landlord or real estate agent should show you where to find your gas meter.

To read a metric meter, read the digits from left to right, including any zeros at the beginning. Any digits in red after the decimal point are for testing purposes only and shouldn’t be read.

To read an imperial meter, read the clock faces from left to right. If the pointer is between two numbers, record the lower one. This reading will be in cubic feet, which will be converted to cubic metres on your gas bill.
