Technology advances rapidly and systems are becoming smaller and smaller while integrating more functions. We can see this everywhere and one of the benefits is that we can improve our lifestyles by replacing old complex devices with new ones that not only are much easier to use, but allow us to save time and money. Another benefit is that these days we have the possibility to change things around home too and reduce our bills, starting, why not, with gas and energy, and the technologies available to help us with that, were made also with the environmental benefits in mind.
As you probably have heard, the government’s vision for all homes, business spaces and public sectors in Great Britain is to have smart gas and energy metering devices installed by 2019. This will make UK a leader in energy efficiency and everyone can take part in the smart meter revolution by simply installing the two smart monitors from British Gas, which you can see in these images.
You can set the smart monitors for gas and energy anywhere you want, or, better said, anywhere you can keep an eye on the consumption and costs, because each device is smart enough to display how much gas or energy you are using and the costs, in real-time. This is great especially because you can find out the difference between keeping the heater on all 24 hours and keeping it on only during night. Also, you can see the difference between taking a bath and using a shower, not in terms of time spent, but in terms of money, or how much energy requires playing your favorite console video game. You can control the usage even online or through a phone application. There are lots of things you can change in your lifestyle to start using your appliances more efficient and the British Gas Smart Meter systems were developed specifically to enable you to pay for what you use.
What you’ll also love is that you won’t need to submit the meter readings anymore. While hidden in infrequently visited locations, smart meters communicate with the in-home displays wirelessly and send accurate readings to British Gas every day, automatically, and you’ll receive the energy bills instead of submitting them yourself. There are already 160,000 homes in the United Kingdom relying on the Smart Meter technology. Besides costing you nothing to switch to the modern system, the experts at British Gas were trained to install the smart meters in your home and to explain everything about them.
