Advice 2: How to see the counter
The question of payment for the consumed energy concerned citizens every year more and more. This is understandable, because the price of electricity, water and fluids are growing. To properly pay slips, utilities, need to know how to calculate the payment amount. It depends on the readings of your counters for light, water, gas.
Today, many residents of cities, villages and other settlements put counters on heat transfer fluids, water, electricity. Some people manage to save the expense of that up to a third of the rent.But in order to achieve such savings, first of all, you will have to fork out for the purchase of meters, installation, sealing. In addition, the set should only those counters that have passed the appropriate standardization. There are special lists. And the installation of meters may lead to considerable costs, not only material but also moral.
We should also say that the installation of counters on heat transfer fluids (heating) in an apartment building is usually on a porch, because the counter counts the passage of coolant for a direct and return pipe. And the risers of these pipes shared by the whole staircase. It turns out that the exact calculation of the coolant in this case it is possible to speak only if all the neighbors are fairly paid for providing heat.
Installation of separate electricity meter – the event is less troublesome, but also has its own characteristics. The fact that modern meters have increased sensitivity and allow for even the LEDs mounted in the backlight of the television equipment. Also, by selecting such a counter, you should write a letter to the utilities of your home on the intention to pay over the counter.
Usually on the front counter there is a window in which is located the scale of the display. It is a series of squares with numbers. When completing the payment should be recorded in the column "Last counter" all the figures that shows the scale indication. Then subtract from this number of readings the last month. The difference is the amount for which you will have to pay.
If you have not changed the meter for a new one, you will be charged the average amount of electricity consumed, based on the number registered in the apartment of a family member. Sometimes, to pay an average calculation is much more profitable than on individual meter readings.
