I need to have my gas meter upgraded . How do I arrange this?
The first thing to do is to speak to a Gas-safe register engineer They’ll give you a proposed usage in kWh to work out the size of gas meter you need (U16, U25, U40, etc) and also check whether the service (the pipework that leads from the mains to the property) needs to be upgraded. They’ll also check the size of the pipe work coming into your property.
If you do need to upgrade your service
Get in touch with the gas network for your area. They’ll tell you how much it’ll cost. You’ll also need to check with them whether the service is low or medium pressure.
If you’re happy with the cost the gas network will give you a date when they’ll complete the service alteration. You can then contact us with the relevant information (see below) to book an appointment to get the meter upgraded.
If you don’t need to upgrade your service
If the service to the property doesn't need upgrading you should contact us with the relevant information (see below) and we'll arrange the meter upgrade appointment for you.
Booking your meter upgrade appointment
When you call please have these details to hand:
- the proposed kWh usage
- if the service is low or medium pressure
- the size of the pipe work leading into your property.
