Smart meters replace your existing gas and electricity meters. In most instances they’ll be installed in the same location. What’s great about smart meters is that they come with a handy little monitor called the ‘in-home display’. They’re not compulsory, but if you choose to have one you’ll be able to see your usage and spend, as well as explore other features such as daily, weekly or monthly comparisons. It could also help you take simple steps to reduce your energy usage. It’s a good idea to keep the in-home display plugged in, as the battery life is only around four hours, and position it fairly close to the meter itself.
