Commercial Gas Meter Installation

Providing the UK's leading, honest and reliable commercial gas meter solutions.

A new gas meter installation is the smart move for businesses looking to save money in the long run. Business expansion and relocating to new premises means your gas and energy usage could change, and the correct gas meters installed will help you efficiently stay up to date with all your readings and energy usage.

A commercial gas meter measures the volume of energy used to fuel businesses. Gas meters come in different sizes, and it is very important your business has the right size installed. If the wrong size is installed, it may not be able to keep up with the amount of gas that your business requires.

Total BGS Energy carries out gas meter installations and will always ensure your business is fitted with the right size thanks to our expert knowledge.

Business gas meter installation process

The Total BGS Energy team can tailor our services to your needs, delivering fast results, within your budget.

Initial consultation

During this first step, we get to know your business, as well as find out your gas supply numbers. These are the unique numbers, also known as the Meter Point Reference Number (MPRN) that are on your latest gas bill. This helps us to determine what type of gas meter to install. We will also book a date for the groundwork and installation to take place that works for you, where available.


We ensure the correct groundwork takes place to provide you with a safe connection to the gas main . We hire our trusted contractors, leaving you without the worry of finding the people for the job. We also organise all protocols that need to be adhered to with the right energy bodies.


Our accredited engineers will take care of the whole installation process. We connect your building to the gas main in a safe and efficient manner. As gas meter installations require expert knowledge and deal with highly flammable materials, you can trust Total BGS Energy to perform this step correctly.

Safety checks

Once installed, we perform all necessary safety checks to ensure everything is secure. Every part of the gas meter installation is rigorously checked before we hand your new gas meter over to you. Our installation process is the same for all businesses, no matter the size. Small and large businesses can rely on us to treat them with the identical level of care and dedication for a new gas meter installation.

Types of business gas meters

There are several types of gas meters available. Each one is designed to meet the specific energy demands of all types of business. Total BGS Energy can match your business, whether you’re an industrial-scale company or an SME, to the right type of business gas meter.

    Diaphragm meters

    The majority of diaphragm meters are found in modest commercial buildings. They work by filling and emptying a succession of diaphragms, which measure the amount of gas flowing through the meter. They are suitable for businesses with a moderate need for gas.

  • icon-tick-red

    Rotary meters

    Typically, medium-sized businesses utilise rotary meters. In comparison to diaphragm meters, they are more precise at greater flow rates and measure the amount of gas using two rotors.

  • icon-tick-red

    Turbine meters

    For large commercial and industrial properties, turbine meters are employed. For these applications, they are more precise and made to tolerate much higher flow rates. A rotating turbine is used to gauge the gas flow rate.

  • icon-tick-red

    Orifice meters

    Typically, very large industrial applications use orifice meters. These gas meters gauge the pressure decrease over an orifice plate that has been inserted into the gas stream. This type is generally not used for smaller commercial businesses due to its complexity and cost.

  • icon-tick-red

    Ultrasonic meters

    The velocity of the gas flowing through the pipe is measured by meters using ultrasonic waves. These are often utilised in large industrial properties where precision is required and are extremely accurate.

  • icon-tick-red

    Smart meters

    Smart meters are becoming increasingly more popular for businesses. These meters eliminate the need for manual readings and improve billing accuracy by sending information about gas usage back to the energy provider digitally. They are available in sizes appropriate for small to large organisations.

    The optimum type of meter for your business will depend on your particular requirements, such as the size of your building, its gas consumption and the degree of accuracy it needs. As proficient gas meter installers, Total BGS Energy is more than happy to provide detailed consultations with you on the best type of new gas meter that will work for you.

Yes. Companies registered in the UK can claim 20% VAT on their utility bills. However, it’s important to keep a record of your electricity usage to support your claim, in addition to issuing and keeping copies of valid VAT invoices.

A comparison site won’t take your company’s individual needs and goals into account. It will simply generate a list of generic rates available online. These rates are likely much higher than the tariffs you would pay via Total BGS Energy, as our industry contacts give us privileged access to electricity deals that don’t appear in a regular search.

What’s more, the support provided by Total BGS Energy is about so much more than simple energy procurement. We also manage your bills for you, producing regular reports and helping you to identify further opportunities for savings. In addition, we’ll implement any physical structures your business might need to get set up in the first place.
