Why compare energy on A Spokesman Said?
Well, first you’ve got to ask yourself: do I want to overpay for gas and electricity?
If you do, then this page isn’t for you.
But if you fancy saving some money – on average our switchers cut their bills by £200 a year comparing energy prices – then stick around and read on.
Running a comparison and seeing if you’re being ripped off only takes five minutes.
Don’t let your hard-earned cash line an energy giant’s pockets.
There’s no obligation to buy, just see what deals are out there.
Anything you manage to save is money for the important stuff: family holidays; meals out; presents for loved ones; football matches (not necessarily in that order).
If we haven’t convinced you yet, try our DIY hacks to cut your energy bills down that don’t involve switching at all.
Choosing an energy supplier – don’t switch in the dark
Recently, it has felt like any man and his dog can set up an energy supplier.
Choice is, of course, a good thing.
But it can be daunting signing up with a provider you’re not familiar with.
That’s why we’ve put together an energy company reviews page, so you’re not switching in the dark.
From household names like British Gas to bargain-basement challengers like Extra Energy, we’ve reviewed customer service, price, tariffs and even renewable credentials at all the UK’s major suppliers.
We’ve done the homework so you don’t have to.
If you’re still unsure, here’s what you should know when switching to a small supplier.
Switching supplier – it should only take 5 minutes…
Switching energy is easy, free and can save you money – but many of us still don’t do it.
It’s understandable. After all, your energy supply is important. What if something goes wrong?
The truth is, it’s very safe.
You’re protected by the industry regulator, Ofgem, and your switch should take no longer than 21 days (provided your supplier is signed up to the Energy Switch Guarantee).
Your power won’t be turned off during the switch, engineers won’t visit your home to rip up your garden and lay pipe work and you won’t have to pay two suppliers during the changeover.
Still unsure? Here are 11 terrible excuses for not switching your energy.
To make sure your switch goes smoothly, we recommend submitting up-to-date meter readings to your old and new supplier.
Arm yourself with:
- Your postcode
- Your current payment method (you can find this on your bill)
- What tariff you’re currently on
- How much you spent last year on energy (ask your supplier if you don’t know)
And that’s it!
You’re ready to rock and enrol onto a new deal.
Could you get government help with your energy bills?
There are a few government schemes that are worth mentioning.
The following schemes exist to help you if you’re elderly or receive financial support from the state:
Far more than just a price comparison site…
We don’t just save you money, we also fight for you when your energy supplier lets you down.
Take young couple Melissa Evans and Phil Jones.
Npower only called off the solicitors that were hounding the couple for a debt they’d already paid when we stepped in.
In fact, fighting for people who have been let down was the reason we launched aspokesmansaid.com in the first place.
