Looking to add gas cooking to your kitchen?

If you already use natural gas for your hot water or heating, this can be as simple as buying a new cooktop and having your gasfitter install it.

If you're not currently using gas at home, The Gas Hub connects homes within our network for free if you're connecting hot water or heating, and cooking can easily be added at this time - or later on if you're not quite ready to change out your oven or cooktop.

Find out about connecting to gas.
