    I am about to do this, and as many of you probably know, you get this done by the gas distributor, but does anyone have any tips as to how best to bring it in - even if plastic, and therefore not a terrific thermal bridge in itself, how do you continue insulation around it?

    You don’t bring a gas main in in plastic, no chance.

    Outside meter box, in wall some bridging, in ground or surface mounted (ugly)

    Copper or iron pipe in a plastic duct sealed one side only

    Do you have to have mains gas? The cost of connection swayed me in favour of a small ASHP, I haven't regretted it. If you get decent insulation/draught proofing I think the main part of the gas bill is likely standing charge and servicing.

    Nope. I agree but dont forget replacement and repair costs to add in too
