Meter Installation

As meters monitor your electricity usage from the grid, meter installation, upgrades and repairs must only be undertaken by a Level 2 electrician. Traditional accumulation meters have a life expectancy of up to 30 years, so houses built before 1990 will likely to be needing to upgrade out of necessity rather than choice.

Top of the list of reasons to use a meter upgraded to regularly measure electricity usage intervals is the benefit of a reduction to your power bills.

But how does a meter work to reduce your bills? By monitoring your electricity usage at half hour intervals throughout the day, you are able to assess your usage, pinpoint large additions to your usage and adjust your habits to take advantage of off-peak tarrifs.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • I want to rent out a granny flat on my property. Can I get a separate meter for my rental?

    Absolutely. Splitting the electricity bill across two tenancies can be a financial minefield. Thankfully, Izco Electrical can assist you with electricity meter separation. Also known as Tenancy Separation, separating your granny flat’s electricity usage from your own account ensures your tenant is billed a separate and accurate amount at the end of each billing period. It may even have the added bonus of removing you from the higher consumption bracket, reducing your tariffs.

Testimonials

Fantastic!

“After our children moved out, we wanted to subsidise our income by converting their rumpus room into a granny flat to rent out. Izco took the nightmare of working out how much to charge for electricity out of our hands by installing a separate meter for the granny flat. Now our tenants receive their own bill and we don’t have to worry about someone else running up our bills.”
