It’s vital for your safety to keep your meters and vents clear of snow and ice.

Vents for natural gas appliances must be cleared following a major snow or ice storm to enable proper venting and prevent carbon monoxide accumulation.

To take proper care of your appliances  and equipment, use a broom to keep natural gas service equipment clear during the winter. Kicking or using a shovel could damage the equipment.

A qualified professional should check your gas appliances annually. Inspections keep gas appliances safe and efficient, and reduce risks of carbon monoxide poisoning.
