If the smell of gas is coming from an appliance on your property, or from pipework near the gas meter, turn the natural gas meter handle to the off position first before you immediately phone your local plumber or gas fitter or, if you rent, your real estate agent. If you pinpoint the smell is coming from the meter, or if it’s making a hissing sound, phone the appropriate number listed on the Emergencies and Outages page anytime, day or night.
First, check to see if other gas appliances on your property are working. If they’re not, there could be an issue with your gas supply. In this case, please call your Gas Distributor. If other gas appliances on your property are working, check your hot water unit’s pilot light. If you find that it’s gone out, follow the manufacturer's instructions carefully and try to relight it. If you’re unable to relight your unit’s pilot light, please call AGL on 131 766. We have an answering service that can help you outside business hours.
