Having the right type of gas meter can help you accurately monitor your usage and ensure you only pay for the energy you use. But unless you have a smart meter which automatically updates your supplier, you’ll have to take monthly readings yourself to keep gas bills up to date – here’s how to install the right meter for your business.
To compare business energy deals and switch supplier, give our team a call on #CAMPAIGNBUSINESSSERVICENUMBER# or leave a few details in the box opposite and we’ll get back to you.
The first thing you’ll need to do, is find out what your unique gas supply number is – known as the MPRN (meter point reference number). The MPRN can be found on a recent bill, but if you’ve just moved into a new premises and don’t have one, the Meter point administration service should be able to help – you can call them on #CAMPAIGNBUSINESSSERVICENUMBER#. You’ll then need to decide on the type of meter and tariff that would suit your business best. If you’re not sure about what you need, then a quick chat with one of our friendly advisors on #CAMPAIGNBUSINESSSERVICENUMBER# will put you on the right track as well as ensure you keep your new gas meter installation costs to a minimum. Some of the main types of meter include:
Smart meters are free to install thanks to a government rollout scheme but if you’re looking for any other type of meter then you’ll probably be expected to pay for installation but in most cases, you’ll be able to negotiate a price along with your tariff. When it comes to arranging a new gas meter installation, just bear in mind that you or a staff member may need to be onsite when the engineer calls, or they might not be able to carry out the work.

If you’re moving to a brand-new site with no existing gas connection then you can organise one in just a few simple steps:
When it comes to connecting your supply, you’ll need to ensure you’re available as some gas pipes feed into buildings in which case your meter will need to be installed inside. Some properties have gas pipes that stop outside which means you’ll need an external meter – if this is the case then your gas supplier or DNO will need to ensure it’s housed safely.
Commercial energy is tailored to your business’ needs so gas meter installation cost comes down to the meter, tariff and supplier you choose. When it comes to gas meter installation, it usually takes between two to three weeks but it can take up to 12 if you’re putting one in for the first time or if you’re fitting a new connection. We’d always advise starting the process as early as possible to avoid delays to your business.
At uSwitchforBusiness, we understand just how important it is to get value for money and to keep costs down when it comes to your new commercial gas meter installation.
Calling us on #CAMPAIGNBUSINESSSERVICENUMBER# means we can get the ball rolling and start running a gas comparison for you – we’ll even take care of all the little details like switching provider so that you can carry on with business as usual.
