What are your business’s new year resolutions for 2020? If one of them is to save on your business gas, you might be keen to sign up with a provider which can offer you all the benefits of smart technology, and in this blog, we look at exactly why:
Ever felt a slightly nervous sensation as you opened up your paper gas bill, or clicked on your statement in an email? That might have been because you didn’t have a clue how low or high the bill would be. Smart technology has made tremendous strides in recent years – offering both businesses and consumers new ways to save money. Smart meters allow you to check exactly how much you are spending on your business gas, allowing you to monitor your usage and reduce your overheads.
How does it work?
Your company can benefit from automated readings which are produced approximately every 30 minutes, offering you more accurate data that can afford you the benefit of forward financial planning, safe in the knowledge that you have a clear idea of what you will be paying for your business gas, rather than relying on estimates. This can help you to steer clear of cash flow problems in the future.
It’s a ‘no brainer’
One of the reasons why it makes sense to go with a business gas supplier which offers you a smart meter is the negligible cost in many cases. Set up is usually completely free, and the more accurate readings can often benefit your supplier, as well as you.
Did we mention that smart technology can also help to save your organisation precious minutes? That’s because you won’t need to worry about submitting your readings, as it is all done automatically through the smart meter. What’s not to like?
Make the most of it
You should be sure that your current business gas provider is compatible with smart technology before arranging any kind of installation. And once you have a smart meter functional, you should monitor your gas usage and test ways in which you can reduce it – after all, you now have a tool that can help you save money and become more green as a company!
