To help keep you safe and natural gas flowing to your home or business, DTE Energy conducts a mandatory inspection of your gas meter every 39 months.
If the meter is inside, or outside but inaccessible, you will be contacted by DTE to schedule the inspection. We will work with customers to arrange a time that is convenient. However, failure to comply after a reasonable number of attempts to schedule an appointment could result in termination of service, as required by state regulations. We want to avoid that, if possible.
A gas meter safety inspection is free, quick and does not involve temporary disruption of service. DTE’s Bill Mihalyfi explains what happens during the inspection – sometimes referred to as a Meter Assembly Check or MAC check.
