Pilot Light-Up Inspection Scheduling Underway
August 19, 2010
(August 19, 2010) - Memphis Light, Gas and Water Division customers can schedule appointments for pilot light-up inspections by calling 820-7878. The service is free to all customers prior to October 5 and after December 31.

By calling 820-7878, customers can access the automated scheduling system to choose an appointment date and time that will be most convenient. The times are 8 a.m. - noon; noon - 4 p.m.; and 4-8 p.m. Saturday appointments are also available. For the best selection of dates and times, please call as soon as possible.

Floor furnaces and wall furnaces should be cleaned prior the technicians' arrival to light your furnace. If your furnace is in the attic, proper access must be provided.

MLGW inspection appointments worked Oct. 5 through Dec. 31 will be assessed a $27 fee that will be billed to the customer's account. The service fee of $27 covers up to three gas heating appliances in your home; each additional gas appliance will incur a $14 fee.
