Gas

Natural gas lines have been installed throughout in Istanbul and Ankara over the last decade as a solution to the pollution brought on by unplanned urbanization. However, high inflation raised the price of imported natural gas and LPG, known as tüpgaz which is the gas used in most kitchens and baths throughout the country. We suggest you use Aygaz, İpragaz and Milangaz brand LPGs which are the best known ones. You can order them by calling the nearest distributor or just purchase from the LPG pickups touring between the streets, each brand's truck - having a different music played to attract your attention.

Some companies produce smuggled LPGs which are of low quality and are unsafe - they sell them by using the names of those well-known brands. Therefore we strongly recommend you always purchase your LPGs from a reputable well known retailer. Please take note of the following points: the name of the manufacturer should be written (engraved) on the container, the container should have a TSE (Turkish Standards Institute) seal on the top near the handle and the blue valve at the connection point of the container should not be opened beforehand.

If you are attaching the container to the house yourself, you should check the detantör, the device at the end of the pipe coming from the stove. Place the detantör on the container, attach it and pull to check if it is properly connected. It should not dettach or come loose. If the container comes apart from the detantör it means that it has not been properly connected. Don't use the stove before the detantör is firmly connected to the LPG container.

İGDAŞ Natural Gas bills can be paid at all İgdaş teller offices or Albaraka Türk, Alternatif Bank, Anadolu Bank, Anadolu Finans Kurumu, Asya Finans, Denizbank, Dışbank, Finansbank, Garanti Bankası, KuveytTürk, Pamukbank, Şekerbank, Tekstilbank, Türk Ekonomi Bankası, Vakıflar Bankası.

You may choose to pay your gas bill directly at one of the İgdaş offices or from your account by using automatic payment methods or via the above mentioned bank branches. In order to have them paid automatically, open an account with a bank and supply the bank with a copy of your bill. They will use the information on the bill to set up an automated payment plan.

İGDAŞ Teller addresses are in Yellow Pages:

İGDAŞ Genel Müdürlük (General Management)
Kazım Karabekir Caddesi 4, Alibeyköy
Tel: (212) 626 46 46

However some forgers may come to your door introducing themselves as the authorized personnel and request the payment of the invoice. Don't forget the payments of all those services are either made to the pay offices of those companies or via banks.
