Will my gas or electricity supply be interrupted while switching?

No, there will be no interruption. When switching, only your energy supplier will change, so no need to worry about your supply being cut-off or additional work needing to be done. Once you've switched over, your new energy bill will come from your new supplier.

How are service ratings calculated?

Switching suppliers isn't only about the cheapest tariff. Many customers want to know about other important things like customer service. The service ratings in our results tables give a guide to the level of service you can expect from a supplier using an easy-to-understand star system:  

1 star = very poor 

2 stars = poor 

3 stars = average 

4 stars =good 

5 stars = excellent 

Ratings are calculated using Citizens Advice stats. They include the number and severity of customer complaints received, customer service availability and the quality of their online services. The service ratings were last updated in July 2017.

What’s a fixed tariff?

Fixed tariffs have fixed price rates per kilowatt hour, and an end date. Some are short term fixed – usually for a year – and some are fixed for longer. Fixed tariffs protect homes from energy price rises.

What are the different meter types?

Meters come in different shapes and sizes. There’s the prepayment meter where you pay for your energy in advance and ‘top up’ your meter. Standard meters –  the most common meter type – allow you to pay for your gas and electricity by cash, card or direct debit. Economy 7 electricity meters charge different rates for day and night usage, the night time rate will be cheaper.  

A word on smart meters. The government wants the majority of homes across the UK to have a smart meter installed. If you don’t have one already, these meters deal directly with energy suppliers, meaning there’s no need to send meter reads and your bills should be more accurate as you’ll only pay for what you use.

How do I know prices won't go down after I switch?

Energy prices have risen steadily over the last few years, with only the odd dip. They're affected by so many different factors that it's almost impossible to predict what’s going to happen in the short-term. Trends suggest that prices will continue to rise in the long-term, so it’s important to regularly compare suppliers' tariffs and switch to save money.

What does ‘standard variable’ mean?

A standard variable tariff is an energy supplier’s core tariff. They don’t have an end date. Ofgem’s data shows that standard variable tariffs are often more expensive than fixed tariffs so it’s definitely worth getting a quote for a new deal if you’re on one of these tariffs.

Who are Ofgem?

Ofgem is the energy regulator. It stands for ‘Office of Gas and Electricity Markets’. Their remit is to protect the interests of energy consumers by promoting value for money and the security of supply. They supervise markets and ensure competition. Ofgem also ensure the delivery of government schemes.

Should I cancel my direct debit after switching?

Yes, it's a good idea to cancel your Direct Debit with your old supplier. They’ll send you a final bill once your account is closed. It's best to wait until the final payment has left your account and then cancel your Direct Debit.

If you've been overpaying, and your account is in credit, the supplier should send you the remaining balance.
