It also means that the supplier that you have can give you an accurate reading and therefore an accurate bill. How do you read this meter correctly so as not to make mistakes or end up with an estimated bill?

First off all its also a good idea to make sure that the meter box is in good working order. If it’s a bit tatty or the door is hanging off then it will make things a lot harder to read it. This is where a new Gas Meter box is required and you can easily get hold of one. If yours is falling apart then it does not reflect well on the house’s appearance.

So, now that we have sorted out the Gas meter let’s actually try and read the thing. When you look at it for the first time you will notice that there are a lot of dials on there. A lot of dials that are not all important to the giving of an accurate reading. You must read the first four numbers from left to right. This will give you the overall figure. One thing that you do not need to include are the red numbers at the very end.
