Compare the best gas supplier prices
It’s easy to fall into the trap of keeping your contact with the same gas supplier year on year, but this complacency could be costing you hundreds of pounds.
To help make sure you get the very best gas supplier and tariffs, UKPower's energy price comparison tool will search of the best gas deals on offer.
Then, all you need to do is decide which of them is best suited for your needs and we'll handle the rest of the switch for you.
When looking to cut your household bills, comparing energy suppliers and tariffs is important as it enables you to make a much more informed decision.
The good news is, comparing deals can be done online in the time it takes to boil the kettle - UKPower's price comparison tool just needs a few details to get started, and the entire process straightforward and completely transparent.
By comparing gas suppliers, you can ensure you get the best deal for your specific requirements, as well as the best price being offered.
Who supplies your gas?
If you have just moved into your new home or are renting a property, there is a big chance that you are unaware of who actually supplies your gas. If this sounds familiar, do not despair, you are not alone. Your gas is most likely supplied from one of the big six energy companies currently operating in the UK.
The easiest way to find out which company is supplying you with gas is to look at a recent bill.
All the information you require, including the name of the supplier, the type of tariff you are on and information about how much gas you consume and what you pay for it should be contained on the bill.
If you do not have access to an old bill, you can ask your landlord/real estate agent for your Meter Point Reference Number (MPRN). This is a 6-10-digit number that is used to identify your property and your gas supply.
How to find the best gas prices
With so many energy suppliers now competing in the market, it is important to be able to compare the different deals they are offering. By doing so, you can find what the best gas prices are for your business and which tariff will suit your business needs the most. However, the process can often be frustrating and time-consuming.
Thankfully, the team of experts at UKPower will use your details to quickly identify the best gas prices available – enabling you to easily select the best tariff. By using information about your business, such as its size, location and average gas consumption, UKPower will identify the best deals, not only from the biggest, most common UK energy suppliers, but also from smaller, more localised gas suppliers to ensure you get to see the very best deals from all areas of the market.
Will the best gas supplier offer the cheapest rates?
While it is understandable to want to get the cheapest gas rates, by doing so you cannot guarantee to also get the best service. When weighing up your options for a new energy contract, you must consider factors other than just price, particularly if you are looking for a business gas supply contract. These include the energy supplier’s reputation regarding reliability of service.
Having a consistent, regular supply of gas is important, and you may find that some suppliers have a better reputation than others. Good customer service is vital for some customers, and therefore, you may wish to choose an energy supplier that has more positive reviews in this area. Furthermore, while the price per kWh may be low, it may come with a higher daily standing rate, meaning you may pay more in the long run.
What are the best gas deals for Independent Gas Transporter (IGT) customers?
Independent Gas Transporters [IGT] are smaller suppliers of gas that provide energy to properties with their own private gas pipes. Such properties include private developments in which the developer owns the gas pipes, not the energy supplier. In these cases, you will be required to pay the developer to use their network of pipes to have your gas supplied. As such, you can often find yourself paying more for your gas.
If this is you, the team at UKPower will help you get the best independent gas transporter deal by enabling you to compare what the IGT suppliers are offering. If you are currently with an IGT and wish to switch to another one, UKPower can help you.
The entire process is straightforward, and apart from one slight difference, is the same as if you were connected directly to the national grid. Once you have provided your information, UKPower will provide you with different quotes to compare.
However, once you have selected the deal for you, you will then have to contact the new supplier yourself to find out how much extra they will charge on top of the quote we have provided.
Are there any green gas options available?
Although there are now loads of energy suppliers offering 100% renewable electricity, the options are pretty limited when it comes to green gas.
If you're looking for a green gas supplier, then there are two main supplier options open to you - Green Energy and Ecotricity.
Green Energy is the UK's only supplier of 100% green gas, while Ecotricity offers carbon neutral gas and funds the production of gasmills across the UK, where green gas can be created.
