The most likely reasons are
- There is an issue with the meter, in these circumstances we will arrange for an engineer to attend your home within 3 hours from the time of your call to fix or replace the meter.
- The meter has run out of credit, in which case you would need to top up. Usually in these circumstances, you will have also used up your emergency credit. Therefore, when topping up you will need to credit the meter with your usual amount e.g. £10 plus an additional £5 to reimburse the emergency credit used.
There are number of reasons why your meter may be using credit quicker than usual.
- There is a debt in the meter.
To check your electric meter for debt, insert the key press the button until you get to screen ‘S’ or ‘8’. These will show you the amount you owe.
For gas debt, insert your card press the button until you get to Screen 27, this shows you the amount to be repaid.
- You have entered your emergency credit. In case of an emergency where you have been unable to top up, all meters have £5 emergency credit. This credit runs down much quicker than credit that you have purchased. You will need to top up your meter ensuring you also cover the cost of the amount of emergency credit you have used.
If you have incurred the debt you will need to top up an amount to cover the outstanding debt + an amount of credit suitable to support your weekly/monthly usage. For example, if the debt amount is £30.00 and you normally top up £10 per week, the total top up would need to be £40 to extinguish the debt and ensure your meter has sufficient credit for that upcoming week.
Debt is typically accumulated as a result of unpaid standing charges. Regardless of whether you use any gas or electricity, your meter incurs a charge daily usually of around 25p per day. If you have not credited your meter for a while this daily charge will not have been paid, thus the build-up of debt.
If the debt on the meter is a historical debt from a previous tenant, you will need to call our customer services team on 03300 414 902, so that arrangements can be made to have that debt removed. You will need to provide our team with proof of the date you moved into the property and also photographic evidence of the outstanding debt on the meter.
