Frozen Meters   

Hopefully, though, your meter hasn’t frozen.

To keep it that way,you may want to consider these tips.

 

  • Make sure warm air is allowed to circulate around your meter, keeping in mind the coldest air is near the floor and along the walls of a basement.
  • If your meter is in a separate room, leave the door open to this room to allow warmth to circulate.
  • If your meter is in a cabinet, open the cabinet door.
  • If the meter is in an outdoor pit, check to see that the cover fits properly and that it has no cracks into which cold wind can blow. The pipes, valves and the meter inside such pits should not touch the concrete walls.

  

Frozen Pipes

Learn how to prevent water pipes from freezing, and how to thaw them if they do freeze.
