 Connecting Gas & Electricity

Your service provider should have a record of your gas and electricity meter numbers when you provide them your address. You are free to connect to a utility provider of your choice and this must be done on taking up residency at the building. The meters are read remotely and are located in the main switchboard room in the car park that can only be accessed by building management or the meter readers.

The hot water meter to apportion your hot water consumption as a portion of the total building (given it is a central hot water system) is in most instances located under the kitchen sink or the laundry basin.

On occupying the apartment you may need to turn on the electricity using the switchboard in your apartment and the gas using the valve located in a cupboard in your kitchen.

No Electricity

If there is no electricity in your apartment, or part of your apartment, most likely a circuit breaker has tripped. There is a switchboard in the apartment that contains all circuit breakers, it is usually located in a storage cupboard or your kitchen.

As a short has most likely tripped the breaker it is best to turn off all power outlets, appliances and lights, go to your switchboard and then reset the circuit breaker by turning it back to on. If you turn a light or use a power point and the breaker trips again, this is the cause of the short and the appliance should not be used further or an electrician should be called.

Should there be no electricity in your apartment and no breakers are tripped, please contact building management, unless it is an issue with the area in which case you will need to wait for power to be reinstated.

When occupying the apartment you are free to use a telecommunications provider of your choice to set up your telephone and internet. Providers should be able to set up your connection without accessing the building, however if for some reason they require access to the building’s Main Distribution Frame (MDF), please contact building management.

Each apartment has a main point on a wall outlet inside the apartment, this is normally located in the living room. Your telecommunications provider will provide a phone/internet service to this point, where a modem will need to be connected. The provider will guide you through the installation process or send a technician out to complete.
