Your gas meter is an accurate automatic measuring devise as it determines how much natural gas flows through it by counting the filling and emptying of compartments inside its case. Because each compartment fills with the same amount of gas every time, the measuring is very accurate.
Most CoServ Gas accounts are billed in 100 cubic foot increments, commonly abbreviated as Ccf.
Each dial on the household gas meters below is labeled with a total gas volume equal to one revolution of the dial. For instance, if the hand on the dial marked “one million” goes all the way around, that equals one million cubic feet of natural gas.
Example: Read the dials on the lower row from left to right and record the smaller of the two figures on either side of the pointer. This first meter reading is 1,084. Since the smallest amount of gas measured on the lower row is 1,000 cubic feet, the reading is 1,084,000 cubic feet.
The new second reading below is 1,216, or 1,216,000 cubic feet of natural gas. The total usage is the difference between the readings, or 132,000 cubic feet.
