Gas is available throughout New Zealand. Natural gas and LPG are available in the North Island, and LPG only in the South Island. To find out if natural gas is available in your street, visit http://vector.co.nz/gas-estimator.
Once you know that gas is available to your property, you can choose the appliance you want and sign up with a gas retailer. They will manage the process of connecting you to gas, making this process as easy as possible.
If you are connecting to natural gas, use the link above to get an online cost estimate from Vector. They can then arrange a visit your property to provide a more accurate quote to connect natural gas from the street to your property.
This involves connecting an underground gas pipe from the gas network main in the street to your gas meter. A gas meter will be installed by the network provider and you then need to make contact with your Master Gasfitter, who will connect the gas from this gas meter into your home and then connect gas to the gas appliances you install.
