Meter Sizing
« on: October 30, 2017, 06:55:16 PM »
I should probably know this, but I haven't done this in ages. So here I am. Anyone know how to know if your meter is big enough for the asking load? Does it say anything on the meter itself? Parents want add a few things that will add more btu's.

Thanks!

What class is the meter (200 or 400)?  If it's a 200 class it's good fur 300000 btuh, 400 is good for 600000 btuhs @ 7" w.c.

I think the 250 has a 1” outlet and the 400 has a 1-1/4” outlet.  There should be a metal tag on the gas meter that lists the model.
