What does the installation involve?
You just need to be in the house for the switch over. That’s it! The installation itself is relatively straightforward. On average it takes about one hour per meter to install the new one, but it may vary by property.
After making an appointment, engineers from the energy company will do the physical meter switch. They will also install the in-house display that gives you details of what level of energy you’re consuming.
Finally, they should offer to carry out an energy-efficiency inspection of your home and give you energy-efficiency advice. This shouldn’t include any ‘selling’ as they’re forbidden to use the changeover as a selling opportunity.
