Our ordinary (not Smart) Gas Meter has started beeping every time the gas is being used. Please can you advise why this is and whether this is normal?

If you have had the meter a long time, would you believe it could actually be the battery in it! I never knew they had one myself LOL,

They do have to be changed very rarely but of course they have no electricity supply.

Please let me know how you get on and if that solves the mystery :)

Best wishes,

Tristan :)

Thank you Tristan, do you know whether we can change the battery ourselves?

Hello Amanda good evening, they are specially designed for the meters to the best of my knowledge,please make no attempt to change them as it will qualify as tampering with the meter 🙂 give OVO a call / Facebok Chat, and an engineer will be sent out nice and quick.

OVO number 0330 303 5063

Let me know how you get on! ;)

Best wishes,

Tristan.
