To register for gas is imperative for you to be able to have this service and have access to heating, etc… For this reason, in the following lines we will tell you about the steps to follow to carry out this procedure successfully.
Steps to register for gas.
Before carrying out the process of registering for gas, it is necessary to check that the property is in an area with piping for this resource. In this way, you will ensure that you do not waste time. You should also pay attention to the state of the property:
Building with gas installation.
In this context, you must request the registration or reactivation of the gas service. To do this, you must have the CUPS code, a 20 to 22 digit code. If you do not know what it is, you must contact the supplier of the resource.
Once you have done this, you must contact the central office to analyse the available plans and choose the tariff that best suits your needs and gain access to the service.
Building without a supply point.
In this case, you should contact the gas supplier to schedule a technical visit. Keep in mind that this entails a cost that will be detailed before the technician visits your new home.
You can have an installation carried out by an independent licensed professional if the company’s quote is not what you wanted.
Once you have done this, you must contact the supplier company to receive the CUPS key with which you will have access to the Installation Licence. Subsequently, you should study the tariffs and register the service.
Requirements for registering gas.
In order to register this natural resource by the partner company, you need to have some important documents. For example:
● DNI/NIE to identify your full name.
Invoice where the address of your new home is registered.
● First occupancy registration
IRI and IRC certificates
If you plan to move into your new home, you need to know if the installation has been inactive for less than 12 months.
In this case, you can present the previous Installation Certificate. Otherwise, you have to ask for a new one.
What is the cost of registering this service?
Enabling the installation of this resource is not free, as you have to pay a variable fee between 72 € and 235 €. This amount depends on the provider and the characteristics of the home.
Keep in mind that the price for registering gas depends on a couple of fees that you should consider. These are as follows:
● Connection fee. This depends on the amount of access assigned. However, you only have to pay them if the supply has been activated for a period of more than five years.
● Discharge. These are those whose cost depends on the region where the home is located.
Since the cost can vary due to these factors, it is important to keep in touch with the service provider to know the exact amount you have to pay.
This way, you can avoid mishaps due to not having the appropriate budget.
As you can see, activating the gas service is important for you to be able to use this resource in your new building. After meeting the minimum requirements proposed by the distributor, it should not take more than seven working days to start enjoying the service.
