Gas Safety FAQs

How do I turn the gas off and back on?

When turning off the gas, you should first ensure that all gas appliances and pilot lights are switched off.  Next you need to turn off the safety shut off valve, which is normally located within your gas meter box, outside the house.  The valve is off when it is at right angles to the pipe.

To turn the gas back on, simply return the safety shut off valve to its original position, which is in line with the pipe.

If you have any difficulty reaching or turning the valve, you should contact Bord Gáis Networks on 1850 200 694.
