Is a gas meter mix-up costing you cash?
Dom Littlewood has been looking at gas meters. Why? Because a meter mix-up could be costing you cash! Watch the video above.
Gas bills are calculated on the basis of cubic metres of gas used, but not everyone has a new style metric meter.
If you still have an imperial meter or if your energy supplier believes you have an old style one then your bills will be multiplied by a factor of 2.83 to convert 100 cubic feet to a cubic metre.
Dom met viewers who were being charged as if they had an old imperial gas meter, even though their gas consumption was being measured by a metric one. This meant they were being charged roughly three times what they should've been paying.
How do I tell if I'm being overcharged?
