October 2023 Residential Messaging from SDG&E®


As the weather gets cooler, the use of natural gas appliances like water heaters, furnaces and ovens can go up. Schedule a gas appliance check with SDG&E to make sure your appliances are working properly and efficiently to help keep gas bills lower. Getting your appliances inspected is a great way to help prevent carbon monoxide poisoning too.

One of SDG&E’s gas technicians will come to your home or business to inspect your natural gas appliances. There are several complimentary services:

  • Light and inspect gas pilot lights. Make sure pilot lights and burner flames are a clear blue.
  • Check that gas appliances are operating safely and efficiently and not emitting carbon monoxide.
  • Ensure gas furnaces are working properly and inspect the condition of the filter which improves the furnace’s heating ability.

Visit sdge.com/GasCheck for details. You can schedule your appointment at sdge.com/MyAccount or on SDG&E’s mobile app. When in My Account, select “Services,” “Services Overview” then “Gas Appliances Check.” If you’re in the app, select the “More” tab. From “Services,“ select “Gas Appliances Check.”
