The energy market is always changing, with suppliers introducing cheap energy deals regularly. To ensure you’re paying the best price for your energy, we recommend you compare energy prices every 3-6 months. If you find something cheaper, change energy suppliers, but if not, it’s always worth knowing what else is out there.
Average time to complete the switch application is 4 minutes, not a bad amount of time to save some money.
Simply input few details in to the comparison tool and wait for your results, its as simple as that.
On average our customers save up to £349* annually, you can save as well.
There are several reasons why you should consider switching your energy supplier:
If you’re switching energy and using a reputable comparison service like Energy Helpline, there’s no need to contact your existing supplier – everything is handled for you.
If you were to switch through us, once you’ve chosen the cheap energy tariff you’d like to switch to, we’ll contact your current supplier and let them know you are leaving and moving to a new deal.
You might need up-to-date meter readings, but your new supplier should contact you to ask for these during your switchover.
Once you’ve made a decision on which energy supplier you’d like to switch to, we do the rest by contacting your existing supplier. Once everything has been okayed we will send you an email to confirm the switch.
From there, we will process and forward your details to your new supplier. They will then contact you to inform you of your new tariff start date. You must ensure that you take a meter reading on this date, so that you are billed for the correct amount.
After that you just have to wait for the switch to go through. The Energy Switch Guarantee states that you should wait no more than 21 days for your tariff to be switched.
No, your current energy supply will, in no way, be interrupted.
Your actual energy supply is not changing, so there won’t be any interruption. Everything happens behind the scenes, so if you’ve picked a cheaper deal through us then the only difference you should notice will be your energy bills going down.
You should be able to find who your current energy supplier is by taking a look at your most recent utility bill. Your supplier’s logo and name should be clearly visible on there.
Another way of finding out your current energy supplier is by taking a look at your last energy payment on your bank statement, and it should say the supplier name there too.
You can find out who your electricity supplier is by contacting your regional Distribution Network Operator (DNO), the company that owns and maintains the electricity grid in your area. Contact them and ask them for their Meter Point Administration Service (MPAS) and tell them your postcode and address, and they’ll be able to tell you the current electricity supplier for your property.
Absolutely not, our energy switching service is free for all customers. This covers everything from visiting our website or calling our UK-based call centre, and switching to your new supplier. From start to finish, switching energy suppliers with us is free!
We are here to provide you with the best deals available in your area. No other energy comparison service compares more.
