As an owner or tenant, you have to take care of the area surrounding your meter. Abide by the following instructions.
The room containing your meters must be clean and tidy. Make sure that the meters are always easily accessible and clearly readable. This is to ensure that the meter can be read quickly and easily.
The room must also be dry and well ventilated. This is important not only for the meters to work properly, but also in the interests of safety. So bear in mind the following properties of gas and electricity:
In Brussels, both meters are installed and sealed by Sibelga, your distribution system operator. It is forbidden to break the seals at all times and in all circumstances. The meter reading is also done by Sibelga.
When you move to a new home, identify your meter and check that it works properly (in particular that the seal is still there).
Checking your meters from time to time while you are using gas or electricity is definitely a good idea. Then you’ll see straight away whether they are working properly. If you notice a problem, inform Sibelga.
