COMPARE ENERGY DEALS FROM ALL OF THESE SUPPLIERS
COMPLETE GUIDE TO ENERGY PRICE COMPARISON
When looking to change energy provider, the process was once a nightmare that would take hours to complete and compare energy suppliers .
Nowadays, it shouldn’t take longer than 10 minutes and this is because of our fantastic price comparison service. After taking your postcode and how much energy you use (this information will be on previous bills), we will do all the hard work for you.
If you don’t have access to your energy bills when on the site, a rough estimate can still be provided using details about your home – for example, the amount of rooms and occupants.
Will I Lose Gas or Electricity?
Sadly, many people avoid hunting the cheapest energy deal because they feel as though their energy supply will be cut off during the process.
If you choose to switch with us, this is a problem that simply doesn’t exist so there is no need to be put off the exercise.
After comparing the available prices for your home and deciding to switch with us, we contact both your previous supplier as well as the new provider.
From here, the two parties will arrange a switchover date and the move can be done instantaneously rather than sitting in the dark not being able to cook dinner for a day or two.
As you may have noticed, there is only one pipe that goes in and out of your home so there is no installation required meaning that you won’t have to take a day off work or make special arrangements. In truth, the only difference you will see will be the small number at the bottom of your new bill.
Low Cost = Low Satisfaction?
In addition to this, there is another common misconception that says the lowest priced companies offer the poorest customer service levels.
With this in mind, there are two reasons why you shouldn’t let this comment affect you. Firstly, we do not support any companies that are known for poor customer service levels – if there is a supplier with mainly negative reviews, you won’t find them with us.
Secondly, our price comparison service allows you to assess the customer service of each provider so this is something you can check before switching.
Furthermore, there is nothing to stop you carrying out your own research and asking friends, family, neighbors, and colleagues whether they have had any experiences with your desired company.
If the majority tell you to avoid them, simply forget about their offer and move onto the next company you like.
Also, we should say that you should never be put off going with a smaller company.
Not only do they offer lower prices, they also have a very similar service – it just so happens that they haven’t attracted the same amount of customers as the larger companies and this could be because they are younger.
Thanks to the regulator of energy and gas supplies in the UK, Ofgem, you will always be protected as the consumer. If a service isn’t living up to the standards in place, you will be switched to a more reliable provider with no interruptions.
Why the Price Difference?
So why exactly are the prices in the market so varied considering there is only one pipe into the house and one electricity line entering the home? In truth, there are a number of reasons for this.
Firstly, we have what we call the ‘Big Six’ suppliers in the UK. Since they are so well-known and have a reputation, they tend not to follow the low prices because they don’t need to compete with the younger and smaller businesses.
Secondly, we should also note that there are normally different plans and this is something that gets forgotten.
While one plan would be perfect for one household, it might be a nightmare for someone else which highlights the importance of price comparison. Additionally, your friend might get cheaper rates on one plan but they could be more expensive for you.
As long as you compare the rates for your own home, you can move forward and make a good decision.
If you are still deciding on a supplier, we have a number of factors you should consider alongside price because money isn’t always the answer to everything.
For example, more recently we are seeing the jump to renewable energy sources.
If this is something that’s important to you, there are now suppliers that pay attention to renewable sources so why not support them even if they aren’t the cheapest?
Also, rewards systems are getting more noticeable to help you save money in other areas of your life.
With some providers, you will be offered loyalty points for a particular supermarket.
Next, you should always pay attention to the different plans because some will allow you to save money in different areas or in the future.
If you look at the cheapest handful of options after comparing prices, you are almost guaranteed to find one where the prices rise after a certain amount of time.
Therefore, going a little more expensive but choosing a fixed plan will allow you to save money in the long run.
Why Choose Us?
Above all else, we are completely impartial which means that we have no link to companies in the market.
Since we have no loyalties to a company, we can focus on the most important factor which is saving you as much money as possible.
As long as you provide accurate information when searching, you will receive accurate quotes in return and you can use our site as a hub for all your research.
Finally, we also support Ofgem and adhere to their confidence code – this means that our results will always be fair and as accurate as possible.
