Keep natural gas meter clear of snow and ice
Snow or ice formations on or near a natural gas meter can cause potentially dangerous conditions by affecting proper operation and ventilation of the regulator, which could lead to over-pressurization, according to CenterPoint Energy.
Natural gas regulators are designed to maintain a constant pressure, ensure safe delivery of natural gas and vent natural gas safely to the atmosphere. If blocked, pressure may build up, creating a dangerous situation and causing appliances to fail.
