City Gas

City gas is natural gas supplied to homes via underground pipelines, available mainly in metropolitan areas. This gas is lighter than air, so homes that use city gas typically have gas leak detectors set near the ceiling. To use city gas, you need a cooking stove suitable for city gas. Contact the gas company to make an appointment, and their staff will visit your house on the scheduled day to open the gas connection and check the gas leak detector with you. Generally, city gas is cheaper compared to propane/LP gas. The type of gas used in a property is fixed and cannot be changed by the tenant.
