Who Can Provide The Cheapest Gas Meters?

26th November 2012 written by Richard Hearne in the category Gas Articles

At 1Gas we offer very competitive pricing and a comprehensive range of gas meters including ‘standard’ and ‘non standard’ meters. In other words, a ‘standard’ meter can be taken off a shelf, whereas a ‘non standard’ meter is often custom built or particularly large.  We can provide bespoke gas meters to suit your needs, alongside gas meter housings (sometimes known as meter kiosks) and concrete bases. We can provide low and medium pressure meters too.

Below is a breakdown of the most common meters installed and the capacity of kilowatts they can provide (subject to the gas service pipe from the mains):

U6 (0 kW- 65 kW)
U16 (66 kW – 173 kW)
U25 (174 kW – 271 kW)
U40 (272 kW – 433 kW)
U65 (343 kW – 704 kW)
U100 (705 kW – 1083 kW)
U160 (1084 kW – 1733 kW)

Some gas suppliers and meter providers may charge many hundreds or thousands of pounds over the going rate for a meter installation and their service may be less than helpful too. Here at 1Gas we aim to provide the best customer service possible and can often install your gas meter at just a fraction of some competitors’ prices. We also offer a price matching service to help offer the best value we can.

David says:

I have been advised that a u16 meter has capacity above 16m3/h. What is the actual capacity the meter is capable of?

1Gas says:

Hi David,

Thanks for your comment. Meter models do vary slightly but generally speaking a U16 is capable of 65-169 kilowatts (kW). I will email you directly too just in case you need further assistance.

Many thanks,
