Finding the best energy price should be a priority for any business when optimising cash flow.

Persistent cold weather causes UK households to use almost a fifth more gas over the first four months of 2013.

Centrica, who own British Gas, released the information this week along with the announcement that 28,000 more residential customers had switched to them this year so far.

Jonathon Stead, Marketing Executive at Love Energy Savings said: “The amount of people switching supplier seems to show a trend this year. The UK is becoming more interested in keeping their energy costs down due to the weather.”

“It’s great because not only will it mean more people are on the cheapest gas rates and receiving the best electricity prices, but hopefully it will lead to more people becoming more energy efficient.”

Households and businesses across the UK have increased their gas consumption by 18% in 2013, meaning their gas bills will be more expensive than anticipated.

Mr Stead also added: “It may seem like it’s not worth spending time on but finding the best energy price should be a priority for any business when optimising cash flow.”

“Using a comparison company such as Love Energy Savings can lead you to cheaper prices in five minutes, quicker if you use our online comparison engine.”

Centrica also said they would invest the additional profits from the cold weather into putting off future price rises; however, because of the increased amounts of call-outs, their costs have gone up so how long they will put off price rises is debatable.
