Frequently Asked Questions

Gas at Home

Q. Can I have the gas supply for my hob in the kitchen? 
A. Yes, a 9kg cylinder in a cupboard next to the hob. There must be NO plugs or switches and the cupboard must be vented.

Q. If I have my gas supply outside my house can it be next to the back door? 
A. Yes, although the following conditions apply,
– Minimum of 1m next to a door or window
– 2m from an open drain
– 5m from an electrical source i.e. air conditioning unit, pool pump
plug point, switchboard
– 3m and a firewall from a thatch roof

Q. Do I need 1 or 2 gas cylinders?

A. Depends on what you have installed, one is fine for a stove or hob.
   – Two cylinders are preferable for a Gas water heater as you don’t
     want to run out of gas just as you are taking a shower!
