What’s great about smart meters is that they do lots of the leg work required in terms of letting your gas and electricity supplier know how much you’ve used each month. It will digitally submit accurate meter readings to your energy supplier, ensuring a more precise energy bill. They do this by connecting wirelessly to a secure national communication network, so that you no longer need to run your household off estimated energy bills.
Energy suppliers are innovating with smart meters too in a bid to provide more competitive, bespoke tariffs using the data collected on when and how households are using energy the most. With a smart meter at home, your supplier may be able to offer you a tariff with cheaper prices for off-peak usage. If you’re interested in modernising your energy usage and improving your home’s carbon footprint, call Huttie today to arrange an installation from one of our fully-accredited engineers.
