Smarter Homes

A smart home gives you more control, saves time and makes life simpler

Meters so smart...

They can read themselves, so you never have to submit meter readings again. Which means you’ll always have accurate bills

Smart meters are gas and electricity meters that allow you to view your energy use in pounds and pence as you use it. Smart meters accurately record your energy use and automatically send meter readings to us.

And you can get them installed for free by one of our British Gas Smart Energy Experts.
