It’s been about a week since we’ve had our new British Gas Smart Meter, and I can honestly say it’s changed the way that we use energy in the AG household. Now that I can see our daily usage, and how much it is costing us, I am more in-tune to leaving lights on when we aren’t in the room, keeping towel racks heated all night long, and keeping the heater going when no one is in the house.
Here are some other things I’ve learned to pay attention to with my new Smart Meter:
(1) If you are using a crazy amount of heat during the winter, think about double glazing your windows to keep a draft out.
(2) Only put a kettle do boil if you’re actually going to use the hot water!
(3) Don’t charge your phone overnight. Plug it in in the early evening and unplug when fully charged. It usually only takes a few hours.
(4) Plug the gaps that cause drafts in the house. This will keep your heating use down.
The installation process was super easy. I just made an appointment with British Gas and a really nice guy came the following week. He was super professional and showed me exactly how to work my Smart Meter.
