Fix the current performance of the device for measuring the gas consumed. In the subscription book, see the previous indicators, i.e., those that were at the end of the previous month.
Subtract from the current performance to the previous one: the difference will be the gas consumption for the month or other accounting period. If the rate of gas consumption multiplied by the retail price for one square meter, you will receive a payment for gas consumption in the accounting period.
If the meter is not installed or its performance unreliable, calculate the consumption of gas, taking into account standards. First step: multiply the ratio of gas consumed per person, the number of registered persons. the Second step: multiply the ratio on heating for the number of square meters of heated area. Fold two of the result.
Remember: if the meter is to record consumption of gas is not passed timely calibration, the indications for measuring the flow of gas in the accounting period to lure in the attention of not! So, the gas flow rate should be determined according to current consumption standards.
It is known that the consumption of gas depends on the time of day, time of year and the number of prescribed persons. Of course, the maximum gas flow is observed in winter period, because at this time of the year the premises are heated by gas. However, the maximum gas consumption in a day falls on the morning (7 to 9 hours) and evening (18.00 to 21.00): this situation is understandable, because at this time of day, cooking breakfasts and dinners. As for the dependence of gas consumed from the quantity prescribed, the pattern is obvious: the more people, the more gas is consumed. According to regulations, more gas is consumed when hot water was turned off when people are such heated with gas stove. The gas flow is not affected by the presence of heating in homes where there is a centralized water system.
