External Gas Meter Boxes

When a new housing estate is built, or some flats are built, each individual residence will have their own gas meter which will determine the amount of money they pay for the gas that they’re using. However, the houses that are nowadays being built try to be as space-efficient as possible, which means that miscellaneous items like electricity, water and gas meters are hard to find places for within the house. For this reason, some new buildings are having an external gas meter built into the outside wall of their house to save space. This also means that gas companies can easily check the readings without having to enter your house.

External Gas Meter Boxes

It is recommended that each new gas meter now has a gas meter box fitted on it to make sure that is protected from damage and prevents misuse of the meter. There are several justifications for fitting an external gas meter box over your gas meter. The main reasons are due to safety, because the gas meters have parts like valves which make adjustment very easy for workmen, so if you touch them and do not know what you’re doing, you could damage them, or risk injury to yourself. Another reason why covering up your external gas meter is important is to prevent any tampering to the gas meter.  This is a crime that has increased quite a lot recently as gas prices increase. By fitting an external gas meter box over your gas meter, you can prevent this from happening, and give the peace of mind to your energy supplier that you records are accurate.
