Katie Jenkins, Site Producer at SimplyFinance.co.uk said, "This is a great opportunity for our users to make additional savings on their household finances. People should be proactive about comparing the many utilities providers in their area to find a better deal, and our comparison service makes this process much quicker and easier."
People are often put off by the thought of switching their gas and electricity suppliers, worrying that it is a lengthy procedure involving numerous telephone calls and complicated analysis of bills. In actual fact, switching suppliers is usually a quick and straightforward process, with no work needing to be carried out at the home and no discernible change to gas or electricity supply.
Even after changing providers, consumers can get additional savings on their utilities by managing their gas and electricity accounts online, receiving quarterly bills via email rather than through the post, and by paying for services monthly via a fixed direct debit. As these methods save the suppliers money, the savings can be passed on to customers.
Florian Ritzmann, Product Director at Xelector comments, "Gone are the days when it was a chore to compare utilities providers. Now it is a five minute process that can save a household hundreds of pounds a year. We are pleased to be helping SimplyFinance visitors switch to a better deal on their gas and electricity."
The SimplyFinance utilities comparison service is quick and easy to use. Consumers simply have to enter their postcode and an estimation of their annual gas and electricity bills to receive details of the savings that they could make. They have the option to compare both gas and electricity, or just one of these. If they find a more attractive deal, there are then just a few online steps to follow in order to switch to a cheaper supplier.
