ARE YOU BUILDING A NEW HOUSE?
You should plan in advance for the connection of your home to the natural gas network. Ideally, you should apply to be connected before construction even begins by calling our Sales Department at 819 771-8321 and selecting option 4.
Once your house is connected to the Gazifère network, you will have to hire a certified contractor to oversee the installation of interior piping for the natural gas appliances you are going to enjoy in your new home. You will find on the Corporation des maîtres mécaniciens en tuyauterie du Québec’s (CMMTQ) website a list of qualified contractors in our region.
For every natural gas appliance installed in your home, a Gazifère technician has to check that the installation has been performed correctly. It is your contractor’s responsibility to let us know when the work is completed. If necessary, we can contact you to make an appointment for the inspection visit.
Plan now for the appliances you may wish to add later
Even if you initially plan to use natural gas only for your furnace and water heater, you should plan to have the piping and outlets installed now. This will enable you to hook up other natural gas appliances at a later date. Fireplaces, stoves, barbecues, clothes dryers and pool heaters are just a few of the appliances most often added in the months following completion of a new home.
