How to Read Your British Gas Smart Meter Monitor

If you’re a British Gas customer, you may have a smart meter fitted to your property. This means that you can see how much energy you’re using in near-real time, and track your usage over time to help you save money on your bills. Here’s a quick guide on how to read your smart meter monitor.

The first thing you’ll need to do is find your smart meter. It’ll be fitted to the wall of your property, usually near where your gas and electricity meters are. Once you’ve found it, take a look at the display. You’ll see a number of different readings on there, including your current gas and electricity usage, and the amount of money you’ve spent on energy so far today.

To read your current usage, simply look at the numbers on the display. The first number is your current gas usage, and the second is your current electricity usage. These numbers will update in near-real time, so you can see exactly how much energy you’re using at any given moment.

To see how much money you’ve spent on energy so far today, look at the reading labelled ‘Total cost today’. This will show you how much you’ve spent on gas and electricity so far today, in pounds and pence. Bear in mind that this figure will only update once every half an hour or so.

To see how much energy you’ve used over a longer period of time, take a look at the ‘Total usage’ reading. This will show you your total gas and electricity usage over the past week, month, or year. This can be a useful way to track your energy usage over time, and see how much you’re saving (or how much you could be saving) by using less energy.

Finally, the ‘CO2 emissions’ reading will show you how much carbon dioxide your current energy usage is responsible for. This is a good way to track your progress if you’re trying to reduce your carbon footprint, as you can see how much you’re saving by using less energy.

That’s all there is to it! By reading your smart meter monitor, you can keep an eye on your energy usage and make sure you’re not spending more than you need to on your gas and electricity bills.
