Who are the gas suppliers in the UK?
Nearly all suppliers will supply gas when switching to a dual fuel tariff. However if you are a customer who is only looking to switch their gas suppliers then it is best to run a “gas only” comparison as a lot of the smaller suppliers will not supply only gas due to little demand.
There are also a few suppliers that specialise in only supplying gas to customers.
Who is my cheapest gas supplier?
Who your cheapest gas supplier may be will depend on where you live, how much gas you consume, and the payment method you select. Typically, selecting monthly direct debit as your payment method will be your cheapest option, with gas prepayment meter being the most expensive.
How can I find out my cheapest Gas supplier?
The quickest and easiest way to find this out is by running a comparison through an Ofgem accredited comparison site like energyhelpline.com. Using an Ofgem accredited site ensures that you see the whole picture, as Ofgem sites are required to show the whole of market including suppliers who they have not got commercial agreements with.
Can I have a separate Gas supplier to my electricity supplier?
Yes, you can have different gas suppliers to your electricity supplier. However, the majority of households go for a dual fuel tariff, meaning your gas and electricity is supplied by the same energy provider.
Dual fuel tariffs are generally more popular as most suppliers will offer a discount to dual fuel customers making it the cheaper option.
Will my gas supply be affected by a switch?
No. Your gas supply will be uninterrupted if you do decide to switch. When you switch gas supplier the gas is supplied to your home in exactly the same way as it was before. Switching gas suppliers in UK simply means that you are billed by a different supplier for the same gas, from the same pipes, and likely to be billed less for it.
Does a cheap gas supplier mean worse customer service?
No, switching your gas to a cheap doesn’t mean you will receive any difference in the service provided. In fact, some of the smaller and cheaper gas suppliers offer better customer service than the large suppliers.
