Hook Up Gas Service with Atmos Energy

Step 1

Call Atmos Energy toll free at 888-286-6700 and say "A new account" when prompted. Say or speak your zip code, which is 66030, to be transferred to a customer service representative.

Step 2

Provide the customer service representative with your name, service address, phone number and Social Security number. This information is required to receive natural gas services.

Step 3

Pay your security deposit up front to have your natural gas services turned on. Atmos Energy runs a credit check to determine the need of a security deposit and they use the service address to determine the amount of your deposit.

Step 4

Wait for one to two business days for your gas services to be turned on. Atmos Energy tries to activate your services the business day following your request, provided the security deposit has been received.

Step 2

Provide the customer service representative with your name, service address, Social Security number and telephone number.

Step 3

Wait one to three business days for your gas service to be set up. Sometimes gas service can take up to one week during high-volume service times, which usually occur in the winter months.
