The internet is not only an excellent resource for finding out more about your electricity and gas supplier, but can also reveal exclusive benefits and discounts available only to new customers who sign up online. With many websites now being as secure as phone lines, you could enter your details and be switched to a new, cheaper tariff in minutes, which could be great news for your bank balance when your next fuel bills arrive.
Energy companies are eager to get more customers visiting their websites and signing up, which is why some offer cash back incentives and other discounts when you sign up securely online rather than doing so over the phone. There are other advantages to browsing your supplier’s website too, which could reveal tariffs ideally suited to your personal circumstances that you may not otherwise have been aware of.
If you’re thinking of leaving your current supplier, or just want to compare other deals on the market, using price comparison websites can be a good method of sizing up the options for your area. Most suppliers ensure that the information provided about them on these sites is kept up to date, and using this method will allow you to find the deal that’s right for your needs.
If you currently receive your gas and electricity from two different suppliers, that can be another reason to switch online, enjoying the benefits of a dual fuel tariff to take care of both. That also means less paperwork and less accounts to worry about each quarter.
The worst of the recession may be over, but the lessons the financial crisis taught us about saving money will surely be long-lasting. Energy companies are aware of this, which is why they aim to offer cheap electricity and gas over their competitors.
However, it’s not only financial concerns that are influencing the energy market,with fears over climate change and the environment also factoring heavily in many consumers’ decisions when choosing their supplier. That’s another reason why the internet can be an invaluable resource if you’re looking to switch your tariff or provider, as each company should include details of its ‘green’ credentials on its website.
If you’re conscious about the environment, you may already be enjoying reduced energy bills in your green home, but you can reduce your carbon footprint even further by choosing to receive your bills online, rather than through the post.
