Hi bulb, I wonder if you could answer these two questions?
I’m having my flat renovated at the moment and as part of it I would like to:
- have a smart gas meter installed
- move where the meter is
Is this possible within the one visit to install the smart meter? Or would I have to do something crazy like move the meter and then apply for it to be converted into a smart meter?
Also, are there any rules on placement of the meter? At present it’s on the front of the house, accessible from the street in a really ugly position like others on the street. As it’s a smart meter and can be read remotely could it, and my upstairs neighbour’s meter be moved to my back garden? I am thinking that no one will need to access either of our meters for simple things like meter reads, and if access was needed for something more substantial like maintenance then I would need to be present to give the engineer access to the house anyway, regardless of whether it was on the front or back of the house.
Any guidance welcome!
