Get Help with Gas Bills From LoanNow – Easier, Faster, and Better
Your kitchen stove may use gas or you may have gas heat. Either way, the prospect of having your gas shut off is definitely unpleasant. The alternatives can be downright dangerous. Fortunately, there are options available to get help with gas bill payments. One of the best options for many people is a loan from LoanNow.
If you have a good payment record and you’re not too far behind, you may be able to get help with gas bill payments by contacting the utility. You may be allowed to defer one or two payments, or payments can be temporarily reduced. If possible, attempt to negotiate payment arrangements with the utility company before your gas is shut off. It’s much easier to keep service active than to reactivate service after it has been suspended. You’ll also avoid a reinstatement fee if you manage to keep the gas on.
Winter Assistance Programs
Individuals and households facing the prospect of having the prospect of having their gas heat shut off in the dead of winter may get help with gas bill payments through winter assistance programs. Such programs may be administered through your local municipality, through a nonprofit organization or even your local utility company. Whatever the circumstances, you should apply as soon as possible. The demand for such programs is often stiff, while funding is limited. You don’t want to encounter a situation where you would otherwise be perfectly eligible – but there’s no money available.
Don’t Try This at Home
Many people who can’t get help with gas bill payments resort to dangerous alternatives like space heaters or leaving the oven door open to get heat. Electric space heaters can develop shorts in the wiring that can spark electrical fires. Kerosene space heaters and leaving oven door open pose a risk for carbon monoxide poisoning – or fires – or both.
There is no need to risk carbon monoxide poisoning or setting your house on fire to keep your house warm. A loan from LoanNow can provide help with gas bill payments to keep you warm and safe inside your home when it’s cold outside.
