How does the service work?

We work with our energy tech partner, Flipper, to find the best available energy tariff for you and switch you to it. We'll even manage the whole process for you.

We find you the best possible deal by checking the market and your energy bills four times a year. So if we find you a better deal with even greater savings, we'll switch you again. We'll always tell you when we're going to perform our checks, and give you the option to opt out if you'd prefer to stay on your current tariff.

And because we only work for you (we don't take commission from suppliers), you can be sure that the best possible deal is the one that suits your needs, not ours.

Once you've bought annual boiler cover, our energy switching service will be available to you free of charge for 12 months - as long as your cover remains in place.

How is it different from a price comparison website?

In a few key ways:

  • We find the best available deal for you – not just present you with lists of quotes to understand and compare.
  • We switch you and manage the whole process for you – we don't just show you which deals are available.
  • We get accurate data from your bills, rather than relying on estimations to work out your energy usage.
  • We don't take commission from energy suppliers, which means we can switch you to the best possible deals.
  • We don't share/sell your data, or bombard you with ads.
  • We make sure that, at the time you're switched, you won't pay more for energy than you should – unlike the traditional method of calculating savings, which isn't always fair for UK energy customers as it can result in heavily inflated "phantom" savings.
