If you owe a back balance to utilities providing gas, electricity, phone service or water to your home, they cannot stop providing you service because you have named them in your bankruptcy. Some utitlities, very few, will demand a deposit from you for future service in order to continue doing business with you and, if they do not receive it,  they can then turn off your service. Under no circumstances can they demand payment of a past due amount in order to continue to providing you with service.
