Uswitch factors several elements into your comparison, including your usage, location and meter type to help you compare energy quotes that are available to you. We’ll show you the cheap energy deals we can help you switch to — but price isn't always the only thing to consider.

How to find the right energy supplier for you

Once you have run an online energy price comparison, you may find that you’re presented with a supplier as your cheapest option that you may not have heard of, or know very little about. This is particularly likely if the best electricity deal is offered by a small supplier.

Luckily, Uswitch offers customer service ratings to help you compare energy deals based on more than just price.

We've assigned energy suppliers a star rating out of five. This rating is based on Uswitch's annual, independent survey of 17,000 UK energy customers.

These customers were asked to rate their supplier on:

  • Overall customer satisfaction
  • Value for money
  • Customer service
  • The switchover process
  • How likely they were to recommend their supplier to someone else

Uswitch then equally weighted these scores to provide a supplier rating for each supplier with more than 50 responses.

Can I compare electricity prices only?

Many homes in the UK rely only on electricity to provide heat and power. With Uswitch it’s easy to compare electricity prices if you don’t need a dual fuel deal.

When you run your energy comparison, we’ll ask whether you use gas in your home or if you only want to compare electricity deals. If you choose electricity only, we’ll compare electric prices so you can choose the deal that’s right for you.

Would a switch affect my energy supply?

No. When you switch energy supplier, there is no need to worry about potential energy outages. We'll notify your new supplier, who will in turn notify your current supplier to arrange a switchover date — you won't notice a thing until your new, cheaper bill arrives.
