Installing a gas meter inside
If the gas meter does need to be installed inside the property (this is subject to a low-pressure gas connection being available), it will need to be located as close to the gas pipe entry point as possible to reduce the risk of a gas leak.
It’s highly recommended that the meter is closed off in a housing of some sort and away from any heat source, food and combustible material.

Where should my gas meter be located?
The ideal location for a gas meter is on an external wall that’s no more than 2 meters from the corner of the property on either side of a door or sealed window.
Some properties have a boundary wall directly in front of a public footpath. In this case, we would install the meter inside the property.
How much does it cost to install a new meter?
The cost of installing a new gas meter depends on the scope of work involved. When you speak to one of our team, we’ll discuss your requirements and collate more information so we can provide an accurate quote detailing the work involved.
Can you install your own gas meter?
Unless you are a certified and gas registered engineer, you will not be able to install the meter yourself. Connecting mains gas supply to a meter is extremely dangerous and is illegal to do yourself.
Does a gas meter have to be located outside?
Not always, there are certain circumstances where the meter has to be positioned inside the building, for example:
- Large industrial estate
- Communal areas in blocks of flats
- In the plant room of an office building
