How to Switch Energy Tariffs

By Jessica Modul Subscribe to RSS | January 18th 2012 | Views:

With the majority of people looking for ways to save money these days, you may be surprised to learn that a simple act like changing your energy provider can often prove the best way to reduce the amount you spend on gas and electricity, therefore cutting your outgoings each month. But with so many deals available, it can often be hard to gauge which deal will save you the most money. The best way to browse the available price plans is to visit a energy tariff comparison site or contact suppliers yourself to ask them what deals they can offer you. It is also possible to speak with salespersons, whether they are doing door-to-door selling in your area or they have a stand set up in a local shopping centre.

Before committing to switching, it is worth contacting your current supplier to see if they can offer you a cheaper deal. They should be keen to keep your custom and will talk you through alternative tariffs that could save you money.

Remember you may be also be able to get a cheaper energy tariff from your current supplier so it is worth contacting them to discuss if you are on the best tariff they offer. If you are adamant you want to switch, then it is worth collating information that will make your search easier, such as working out how much energy you use. You can find this out by looking at the bills you have receive over the past year. For more accurate figures, your bills should be based on actual meter readings rather than estimates.

By law, energy providers are required to publish their prices. To ensure you get the cheapest deal possible, it is worth comparing the prices of deals available in your local area. The simplest way to do this is to use a price comparison website.

The way you pay can also effect your bills, as some providers offer a discount for those who pay via direct debit. Check the payment forms used by the suppliers you are looking at, usually they accept payment by cash, cheque, postal order, direct debit or via a prepay meter. If you would rather speak to a customer service representative than navigate a faceless website, contact suppliers and ask them if they offer discounts for certain payment forms.

Customers are generally offered different tariffs depending on their personal circumstances. Efforts will be made by the energy supplier you choose to provide you with a service you can afford and rely on, you just need to do the groundwork first.
