Natural Gas

Kitchener Utilities provides natural gas to thousands of customers throughout Kitchener. Natural gas is a safe and efficient fuel source for providing a heat source to homes through water heaters, appliances, fireplaces, pool heaters, central heat, air conditioners and more.

Natural gas is formed from decomposed organic plants and animal matter. In its pure state, this clean burning natural gas has no odour and is tasteless. To help make natural gas detectable, an additive called methyl mercaptan [mur-cap-tan] has been added. This additive smells like rotten eggs, and is used as a safety precaution to allow even the smallest leaks to be detected. We adhere to strict safety measurements making safety to our customers and community our number one priority.
