Snow and Ice Safety

Keep Your Natural Gas Meter and Appliance Exhaust Vents Clear

During the winter, and especially after a storm, keep an eye on your natural gas meter and appliance exhaust vents.

Snow or ice buildup could damage your gas meter, interrupt your gas service or cause an appliance to malfunction. This can create a serious safety hazard. For example, if your appliance vents are blocked with snow or ice it could cause your furnace to shut off or result in a buildup of dangerous carbon monoxide indoors.

If you find your home suddenly without heat, check your appliance vents to ensure they aren’t blocked.
