The cost of a new gas connection greatly depends on a number of factors, making prices vary from job to job. These factors include, but are not limited to:
There are roughly 3.6 million homes off the national grid and it can be particularly difficult to connect gas to properties in more rural areas, making some jobs more expensive.
The larger the gas supply, the more expensive the cost. This is especially true for large commercial buildings in big cities which require 1000kW or more.
This goes hand in hand with the size of the gas supply necessary as the more appliances there are, the more energy required to power them.
If the property has had a gas connection in the past, the job of reconnecting is much more straightforward than creating a new connection and therefore works out cheaper.
As mentioned previously, the more tricky the job, the more expensive. For example, if the new installation requires access to properties nearby or road closures etc, this will cost more than a straightforward job.
The further the distance between the mains and the gas meter, the more tricky it is to get connected and therefore the more expensive the work.
The more engineers required for a job, the more expensive it is.
If you are unsure about whether there are any gas connections near to your property, you can contact your Local Distribution Network Operator (DNO) or a Utility Infrastructure Provider (UPI) who will be able to inform you of the nearest location and whether the job is feasible and if so, how complex it would be.
If your property isn’t supplied with gas and isn’t within 23 metres of a gas main, National Energy Direct has the solution for you. As a Gas Industry Registration Scheme (GIRS) accredited utility infrastructure provider, we offer services such as gas network design, infrastructure installation and construction, installation of new gas mains or services and meter installations, making us a one stop shop for all of your gas installation needs.
If you know that there is a gas supply nearby, we can help get you connected. As a Gas Industry Registration Scheme accredited utility infrastructure provider, we offer services such as gas network design, DNO network connections and meter installations.
It is important to remember that connecting your property to the mains gas alone isn’t enough. In order to utilise your gas connection, you will require a gas meter. This needs to be installed by a licensed gas meter installer such as ourselves here at National Energy Direct.
Below are some examples of costing for a domestic and non-domestic property
Typically, a gas supply of less than 40 metres would cost somewhere between £300 and £1,000 excluding VAT.
A non-domestic, commercial or business gas connection of around 10-15 metres is usually priced somewhere between £1,500 and £2,500, excluding VAT.
