Hi, I have not had anyone round to check my smart meter readings for months and months. I’d like to check the meters match my bills? Is it possible to read them the old fashioned way to check?

Smart meters are not read routinely, there is no need. They are only inspected at least every two years.
Reading your electricity smart meter is easy, simply press the "9" key, the end of a pen or pencil is best for this. First off the display reads "IMP KWH" followed by a number for example "0001889.6" which is the number you need to be able to check your usage.
if you have solar panels, the next reading is useful "EXP KWH" is the total electricity exported to grid for example "0000272.4" then a load of other readings which you don'y need.
Reading the gas meter is similar, first it gives you the volume in cubic meters which is again what you need to check your usage, followed by the kWh and other details you don't need
There’s another topic on this here.
