PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT - Union Gas Reminds Customers to Keep Gas Meters and Vents Free from Snow and Ice

TORONTO, Feb. 13, 2019 /CNW/ - With heavy snow falls occurring across Ontario, Enbridge Gas Inc. operating as Union Gas reminds customers that it is imperative to keep snow and ice from building up and covering your gas meter and the external exhaust outlets for furnaces, fireplaces, water heaters and clothes dryers.

"Clearing snow and ice away from the gas meter and the external exhaust outlets for your natural gas burning equipment helps ensure that both the meter and your appliances function safely," said Luke Skarrup, Director Northern Region Ops, Union Gas. "It also allows us to access the meter in the case of an emergency."

A gas meter covered in snow or ice can impede its function of controlling the pressure of the gas supplied to your home, which could lead to serious risks. Plugged external exhaust vents can cause the carbon monoxide emitted by these appliances to build up in your home, which of course is a safety hazard.

If you notice your meter or external appliance vent pipe is covered with snow, please remove the snow carefully with either a brush or broom.  Do not scrape your meter or vent pipe with a sharp instrument and this may cause unintended damage.

Union Gas reminds customers of these additional safety precautions:

Note: As of Jan. 1, 2019, Union Gas and Enbridge Gas Distribution have amalgamated into one utility with the legal name Enbridge Gas Inc.
