Have you recently received a gas violation from ConEd? Gas violations can occur due to a number of reasons, including you were having work done and the inspector found a problem or one of your residents called the gas company to report a leak or a hazardous situation regarding the gas lines in your building.

What Happens During a Coned Gas Shutdown 

During a ConEd gas shutdown, the gas service to your building is turned off. This results in all gas appliances being non-functional. In order to restore gas service to your building, you will have to fix the issue that resulted in the shutdown and submit the appropriate paperwork to the proper authority, usually the NYC Department of Buildings in order to achieve ConEd violations removal.

Common Reasons ConEd Gas Service Is Turned Off 


  • Gas Leaks/gas Smells in Your Building
  • Severe Corrosion of Gas Service Lines
  • Unpermitted Gas Line Work
  • Unsafe Gas Appliances

Gas Violation Classifications 

Gas violations are typically put into one of three categories, including Class 1, Class 2 and Class 3, especially if they are issued via a NYC Department of Buildings’ inspector. Class 1 violations are considered immediately hazardous. This means that your gas service will be turned off. 

A Class 2 violation is considered to be a major violation. This classification will also result in a ConEd gas shutdown due to the risk of fire or explosion. A Class 3 violation is considered to be a lesser violation and may result in your gas service being terminated until repairs are completed and the appropriate paperwork has been submitted.
