The internet is an incredible place. In among the millions of cat videos, lonely hearts and box sets of your favourite TV shows are ways to save hundreds of pounds every year. Yes, with one simple online questionnaire, a few details on your energy usage and a click of your mouse, you could compare energy prices across the entire market and save yourself a tidy sum using our Ofgem accredited* energy comparison site.
We understand you probably have some questions about comparing energy and how switching works. Here are some straightforward answers to some frequently asked questions.
According to Ofgem, the government’s energy market regulator, the cheapest gas and electricity deals for an average UK household come in at around £880 a year. If you’re paying more or paying not much less for a smaller household, then maybe it’s time you took a minute to compare energy suppliers. It’s an easy and straightforward process and could put extra cash in your pocket.
We have access to regularly updated information about deals on gas and electricity from suppliers right across the energy market. We decided to build a website that would let you get that information quickly and easily. We knew this could save money for potentially thousands of households across the country, so we gave the site a simple questionnaire that tells us what deal will suit you. Here’s where the clever bit comes in.
All you need to do to find out if you’re paying too much is to grab the details of your usage from one of your recent bills, enter them in our form, then let us match you up with the lowest rates possible. You can run a comparison on just your gas, or just your electricity bill, or just as easily do both.
The kind of things you’ll need to tell us are:
All of these details will be listed on a recent utility bill. Make sure you have one to hand when you fill in the questionnaire.
Yes, that’s all you need. Our clever comparison tool will then search through all the available tariffs to find your best options. We look right the way across the gas and electricity market for this; everyone from old favourites like British Gas, EDF or E.ON, through to innovative and smaller alternative suppliers.
Other operators currently on our books include Scottish Power, SSE, Sainsbury’s Energy, Flow, OVO Energy and Spark Energy. These are all companies with track records in offering great value energy deals and an easy to arrange switching process. Even then, that’s not an exhaustive list, we compare all UK energy suppliers so you know we will find you the best energy deals available. Start a comparison now and see what we’ve got up our sleeve that might work for you.
Because we have so many potential suppliers the ideal arrangement for your circumstances might be a deal that fixes your costs for a certain period, or it might be with a company that cuts down on the admin to cut its prices – or even a firm that has connections with greener energy sources. There are hundreds of energy deals available – we’re certain one of them will be perfect for your needs. Let us find it for you.
The best thing about the process is that, when you compare energy deals, and choose a better rate, as far as you’re concerned, the only thing that changes is the name on your bill. You don’t need a new meter, nobody needs to visit your home and you’re not required to contact your old supplier to tell them you’re switching – it’s all done for you.
Some people believe that this is a privilege that only homeowners can take advantage of, but you don’t even need to have bought your house to change suppliers – you just have to be the bill payer. It actually makes no difference if you’re a tenant or the owner. There’s a great energy deal for you out there – so, why not lock it in today?
Really, there isn’t one. We don’t charge you for using energy switching. Our system works because companies pay us when you switch. This means it’s really in our interests to get you the perfect tariff and contract. Getting you a successful energy comparison makes us happy.
It’s worth remembering that what was once the best deal may not always remain the best deal. You might think that because you searched for a great price once before then you’re onto a good thing. Well, that’s not always the case. Wholesale prices for energy can change and so the great price you once had might not be so competitive today.
We recommend taking a couple of minutes to use our energy comparison tool, even if you think you’re already saving money, as you never know how much your current tariff could be overcharging you. It’s as easy to change a second, third or tenth time as it was the first – it’s a no-hassle and fuss-free process.
With Energy Switching, a couple of minutes searching could be the best investment you’ve made in a while. After all, with the whole energy market at your fingertips, it’s always worth checking to see that you’re getting a great deal. And if you’re not already saving money, we’ll go out of our way to find a way that you can – as quickly and as easily as possible
