Where Is Your Gas Meter?

Post by Careless Whisperer @ Fri Jan 19, 2018 10:47 am

Our gas mains are being replaced in the area and we have had a letter saying the supply to the house will be replaced next week which may involve relocating the gas meter. This could be a good thing for us as it is currently in a really difficult place to access under the bottom of the stairs in the centre of the house.

I'd like to decide on a suitable alternative location for it before I call the contractor to coordinate, so thought I'd do a quick straw poll on here to see where most people's gas meter lives. :)

Under the stairs, really hard to get to. We now have a smart meter though.

On the front wall of the building in a white plastic box, can be read when I'm not here.

Like a standard meter but with an element of humour, think yakety sax.

Gas and electric are both outside the front of the house.

That's my neighbors, ours are hidden behind a bush.

Gas on the ground, electric on the wall.

On the side of my porch in a plastic box. Just had my boiler serviced today and fortunately there's nothing wrong with it and it's apparently not trying to gas me.

Outside is sounding good then, although I'd rather not have it on the front of the house. Will have to see what 'the man' says.

Cheers all. :)
