    Default Installing a gas meter, how much?

    I live in a maisonette which has a gas supply (my neighbours upstairs have gas) but I have no meter. How much should it cost to get a meter put in if you already have a supply and do they put a supply into the house or is that extra and all you get is ther meter in the white box outside on the wall?

    Default Re: Installing a gas meter, how much?

    My building has a supply but I do not as I have no meter my neighbours meter is outside in a white box. A few years back transco put new piping in the street and moved all the meters outside into the white boxes. I didn't use gas at the time so I never got a meter put in but now would like a gas cooker so obviously need gas. All I want to know is will I have to pay or do the suppliers provide one free to new customers.

    From Uswitch:
    The cost of a gas connection depends on how much work is involved. National Grid, who do most connections for individual homes, have standard charges for the easiest connections, and will quote for labour and materials etc for the larger ones. Usually, the distance between your home and an existing gas main makes the biggest difference to price.



    National Grid's 'standard charges' cover new connections to individual premises which are no more than 23 meters away from the nearest main, and which will use a 'normal' amount of gas for a house (less then 73200kWh per year).

    I have just been looking into this tonight.....it is so difficult to get information on this. I have gas in the street, but they have to supply a pipe into your home and you have to pay for this. I am not sure of the cost and would appreciate any advice on how much this costs. It says if you want a meter outside, they will provide this but if you want an "in-built" one , you have to pay for it and give a list of suppliers. I am not sure what an in-built on is - is this inside the property? The have an application form on the website National Grid plc – Group Home Page and then they give you a quote and you have to phone for any help. Unfortunately, they are only open 9am-5pm. Does anyone have any idea how much approximately? Michael - I cannot open the link you have supplied. Thanks for any help anyone can give...

    Therefore, G&M, you will still need to get a pipe put into your house. Hope my info helps.

    Hi green and mean you will need to fill out an application form before they come out, when they come out it is usually around 4 to 6 weeks after receiving this form and the AVERAGE costs are between 300 to 600.
    They will only fit the meter and cap the outlet, the outlet into your house would be your corgi fitters work.

    ......and the CORGI fitters cannot book you in until you get confirmation that you have had the meter installed....

    Also after the supply and box is fitted your supplier will fit the meter.

    You need to choose your supplier.

    I am new: how do I PM Surfer01 please? I need to be connected to gas, including getting some trenched pipework as I am about 60m from the nearest gas main.

    Any other advice about doing this would also be appreciated. Thanks.

    If you dig the trench yourself, you can save nearly 150 on the cost (they backfill for free!). I had to use Transco, and pat 425 up front for the connection. I was given a date 7 weeks in advance for the work to be completed. Due to scheduling problems, Transco missed 3 hook-up dates, and I ended up being paid compensation. They ended up paying ME 25 for the gas hook-up!

    Default Re: Installing a gas meter, how much?

    I have been quoted 17000 (seventeen THOUSAND pounds!!!!) by Fulcrum to install gas at my house.

    I then got a quote from a local firm to just dig the trench, which was only about 1500, less than the a tenth the cost. So I have a very very poor opinion of Fulcrum as I am sceptical that connecting the pipe to the main really merits the extra 15500.

    So saving 150 on the 17000 bill would not have me jumping for joy.

    I'm curious - what did Transco do for the 425? Did they dig the road up (or tunnel under it) to get to the gas main? How far were you from the gas main - was it less than ten meters please?
