If you haven’t been tempted already, it probably won’t be long until you’re putting the heating on. At this time of year it’s good to think about your energy supplier before the winter really sets in and your bills increase. Many people stick with the same energy supplier, perhaps because they are unsure how to change, or they think it will be a complicated process. Unfortunately, the energy companies rely on this and we are often overcharged for gas and electricity. Here are a few simple points for switching supplier: If you would like to easily compare prices, try ‘USwitch’ www.uswitch.com/gas-electricity. On the website you can enter your postcode and details of your current provider (have your bill to hand). Click ‘show me cheaper deals’ and it will provide a list of the suppliers that will save you the most money, and give you further details with an option to switch. If you don’t have access to the internet you can phone USwitch on freephone 0800 688 8244. ‘Your Energy Sussex’ www.yourenergysussex.org.uk is offered by councils in Sussex who want you to pay less for your energy. It is locally produced energy. You can get a fixed deal for a year and they will call you each year to offer their best rate! Click ‘switch now’, which takes you to a page to fill in details of your current bills, and it will tell you the difference in cost if you were to switch. If you decide to switch you can choose the tariff that best suits. If you would prefer to speak to someone over the phone, you can ring 0800 952 0001.
It’s really important to give your boiler & heating system regular overhauls, and especially good to do it before the wintery weather descends. If you would like to have your system serviced do call Home & Company and we can arrange for our plumber to visit you.
