Gas Company Shut Off My Gas – No Hot Water

If you’re like most people, you probably have a few bills that you need to pay each month. One of those bills is your gas bill. The gas company is legally allowed to shut off your gas if you don’t pay your bill. This can happen for a variety of reasons, including if there are any illegal fittings, if there are any corroded pipes or if you’ve missed a payment.

If you’re unable to pay your bill, you may be eligible for a payment plan. This will allow you to pay off your debt over a period of time rather than having the gas company shut off your service completely. Please contact the gas company if this is something that interests you.
