Smart Meter For Boiler

If you’ve never heard about smart meters before, then it is worth paying attention because smart meters are the future and by 2020 every home in Britain will have one. Smart meters will change the way we handle our energy bills and will make our lives much easier as well as help us to be more energy efficient.

One of the most convenient features of the smart meter is its ability to automatically send out meter readings to your gas provider. If you hate having to read and submit meter readings then you’ll be pleased to hear that with a smart meter you won’t ever have to worry about doing one again. The gas man will no longer have to come round to read your meter and there will be no more estimated billing. Instead we’ll have accurate meter readings that can be monitored on an ongoing basis, so you’ll be able to see exactly how much energy you are using and manage your energy budget more easily.

The smart meter will enable you to see how your lifestyle habits impact your bill, making it easier to cut back where possible and for you to make smarter decisions when it comes to energy saving.

British Gas will give you options to top up and pay as you go either online or via the British Gas app as well as over the phone or in a shop. You’ll be able to keep track of your balance via the smart energy monitor.

Even better is that from 2020 your energy supplier will install your smart meter free of charge. The British government has introduced a national upgrade scheme with the aim of improving energy efficiency. The roll out is already covered in your energy bill much the same way that until now installation and maintenance of traditional meters has been.
