The switching process
The main steps in switching to a new energy deal are:
- Start a comparison – make sure you have a bill to hand showing your actual, not estimated energy usage so you get an accurate calculation
- Choose your new provider and tariff, after carefully comparing the deals available to get the right one for you
- Take a meter reading on the day your switch comes into effect
- Pay any outstanding bills with your previous energy provider
You won’t notice any changes to your energy provision, and you certainly won’t find yourself without gas or electricity for any period just because you’ve chosen to switch.
However, if you have second thoughts about your decision to switch, then you have a 14 day cooling off period to change your mind.
So, what are you waiting for? Start comparing deals today and see how much you could save.
