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 Power Outages page at agl.com.au 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.
A supply charge is a daily amount your energy provider charges to supply electricity or gas to your property, and is not related to your usage. To arrive at the supply charge on your bill, we multiply the daily rate by the number of days your energy is supplied.
Whilst your gas meter measures gas consumption in cubic meters, your usage is actually billed in ‘megajoules’ or ‘units’ on your bill, depending on your state. To calculate the number of megajoules, you must subtract your meter’s end read from the start read, then multiply by pressure factor and heating value. For WA, the number of Megajoules is then divided by 3.6 to get to billed units. A unit of gas is equivalent to 1 kilowatt hour of energy.

Your gas meter shows gas consumption in cubic meters whereas usage on your bill is shown in Usage Units.
To determine your gas usage in Units, the following calculation is performed:
Usage units = ((End read - Start read) x Pressure Factor x Heating value)/3.6 = Usage (MJ)
While this is a common formula used to calculate your gas consumption in megajoules, it can vary slightly depending on the type of gas meter you have at your property.
The Pressure Factor and Heating Value are used to convert the metered gas volume you have consumed into an amount of energy calculated in megajoules.
A unit of gas is 3.6 megajoules and is equivalent to 1 kilowatt hour.
