There are a number of impartial services that can help:
Below we have listed some of our most commonly asked questions with regards to switching energy suppliers. With our energy switching FAQs we hope to have answered all your questions.
You could save yourself a considerable amount of money. In addition to the savings, most suppliers now offer a range of additional features with their product offerings which can not only make it more convenient for you to pay your bill (e.g. by monthly Direct Debit or online), but also allow you to earn loyalty points (AirMiles for instance). In addition to each supplier’s tariff, we have a catalogue of all the available payment options and product features. This allows you to pick the product you want easily and quickly.
The amount you save depends on a number of factors:
Our own research shows that the average savings quoted to all our users is around £160 per year. The top 10% of energy consumers with very high current bills receive annual savings quotes of £500 or more. To find out exactly how much you can save, please feel free to use our service.
You can still switch. Most pre-payment meters will require that you have a debt of less than £500. Whilst having a smart meter has no bearing on whether or not you can switch, your new provider may not be able to offer the same smart meter functions. If there is a reductions in the functionality of your smart meter, your new supplier will inform you before you switch.
This would be very unlikely. Your new supplier will use exactly the same wires, pipes and meters that you currently use. Your new supplier will also contact your existing supplier to arrange for the transfer of your supply. The only thing that you will notice is that your bill will come from your new supplier.
Your new supplier will arrange the transfer for you. You do not need to contact your previous supplier. Once you have signed up for a new supply contract, your new supplier will let your previous supplier know on what date the change is taking place. You should ensure that you pay your final bill promptly. If you pay by direct debit or standing order, please make sure you cancel these arrangements once the final bill has been paid.
Your meter reading needs to be taken when you change supplier. Your new supplier will either arrange for your meter reading to be taken, or they may ask you to take the reading yourself. Details of the final reading will be sent from your new supplier to your old one, so that your previous supplier can send you a final bill.
Please keep a note of your meter reading on the date that you transfer supplier. You will need this information if you do not agree with your final bill.
As long as you are not in debt with your existing supplier, they cannot prevent you from switching.
If you are changing supplier you will have to enter into a contract with the new supplier. The contract will specify the price you will pay and the terms and conditions of supply.
After signing up to a new supplier through this service, you are allowed a ‘cooling off’ period of between 7 to 14 days. During this period, you can cancel the contract without penalty, provided the services you are purchasing are in excess of £35. After the ‘cooling off’ period has lapsed, you will have to give the supplier notice of your intention to end the contract. The notice that you need to give will depend upon the type of contract you took. Most contracts require 28 days notice prior to termination.
