Billing 101

Many customers keep a close eye on their bills as they come in, questioning if the increased bill was due to a misread meter. Most times, an increase is due to elevated usage in the home. To better answer any misread questions, below is a sample reading for each type of meter. First, you must identify if you have either a dial type or odometer type meter.
Dial Type Gas Meter
Odometer style meter with reading
If you read your meter the day you receive your bill, the meter reading you take should be higher than the reading on your bill because of the time lapse between the meter reader's visit and your bill's arrival in the mail.

If you have any additional questions regarding your bill please call 615-382-2200.
