Meter reading

We just moved house. The electricity meter has two separate figures (changed by a push button) which I gather are night and day but no indication that we can see of which is which. Guessing that the lower figure is night - is that likely?

If you have electric heating, which is likely given you’re on a two-rate meter, then it’s more likely that the night figure will be the higher one. But there’s no need to do any guess work. Take a reading at, say, 10am, and then again at, say 4pm, and you’ll know for sure which one is logging the day usage.
