Start Your Business Gas Meter Installation with Love Energy Savings

Having the right type of gas meter can help you monitor your gas usage and only pay for the energy you use.

Whether you’ve moved into a new property, require a new meter type, or your current gas meter is faulty, Love Energy Savings can help you find the right meter for you.

The first step when installing a new commercial gas meter is to find your Meter Point Reference Number (MPRN). This is a unique number used to identify the supply to your property. This can usually be found on your meter or a recent bill.

Once you’ve found your meter number, it’s important to consider the type of gas meter you need for your property. This will depend on how and when you use your energy. At Love Energy Savings, we can provide advice on the right meter type for you during the commercial gas meter installation process.

When you’re ready to get started, you can use our simple gas meter installation form to book your new connection. When you switch with us, you may even be entitled to receive a free commercial gas meter installation.

How Your MPRN Status Affects Your Gas Meter Installation

  • New
  • Removed

If you don’t know your current gas meter status, you can contact the MPAS (Meter Point Administration Service). You can also enter your postcode into the Energy Networks Find My Operator Checker.

You can find out more about meter status types and how they affect your gas meter installation, here:

  • Disconnected Gas Meter

    If your meter is disconnected, your current MPRN will not be reused as the connection has been removed. This status is referred to as ‘siteworks’, meaning you will need to speak to your network operator to arrange a new meter.

    You can find your network operator by clicking the button below. Once you’ve secured your new MPRN, you can arrange a new gas meter installation with Love Energy Savings.

  • New Gas Meter

    For a new meter, your MPRN has been created but pipes may not be installed yet. Your MPRN can be activated 3-4 weeks before pipe installation.

    If you have a new meter status, you can receive quotes from us by completing our easy-to-use meter installation form.

  • Removed Gas Meter

    If your gas meter has been removed, you will need to arrange a GT1 survey with your Distribution Network Operator (DNO).

    A GT1 survey will provide information about your meter to find out whether the infrastructure is in place to provide a gas supply to your business.

What Type of Commercial Gas Meters are Available?

The right gas meter type for your business will depend on how and when you use your energy. Installing the right meter type can help you manage your usage and reduce your bills.

Here, we’ve you can find some of the common business gas meter types and how they work.

Standard Gas Meters

A standard, single-rate gas meter will charge your usage at a flat rate. Businesses using most of their gas during peak hours will often use standard meters.

However, a standard gas meter does have drawbacks. You will have to submit meter readings manually, meaning it will not be the best option for monitoring usage.

Smart Gas Meters

Installing a smart meter at your premises can provide more accurate readings and easier monitoring of your gas usage.

Your smart meter will send your readings to your supplier automatically. This removes any need for estimated billing allowing you to only pay for the gas you use.

Many suppliers will offer to install your smart meter free charge when you switch tariffs with them.

Multi-Rate Gas Meters

A multi-rate gas meter charges a separate unit rate for the gas you use depending on the time of day.

During off-peak hours, you can benefit from a lower unit rate. However, in peak hours, your unit rate will likely be higher than on standard tariffs.

These meters can be a good option for businesses which mainly operate at evenings or weekends such as bars and takeaways.
