Hi everyone. I'm a retired scientist with an interest in
energy and am trying to read my natual gas meter's
here's my request
My gas meter has two 'test dials' that are labeled
1/2 cu ft and 2 cu ft. They each have 10 divisions on them.
What I would like to know is whether each division represents
1/2 or 2 cu ft. Or if an entire rotation is equal to 1/2 or 2
cu ft. The reason I ask is because I want to run my gas wall
furnace for one hour straight and see what the usage is.
But the other dials are too coarse and won't move enough with
just one hour of the wall furnace.
Can you help me? Thank you.
If you are not sure or what to check yourself perhaps you could
pass this email to an engineer or technician for a check.
Please include this email in your reply. and thank you.
Here is a photo of a gas meter similar to mine showing the two
test dials of 1/2 and 2 cu ft.
