Having just paid a rather enthusiastic gas bill (over £200!!!) and with the knowledge that British Gas are about to increase the cost of gas by about 20% on 1st March I've, unsurprisingly, been thinking about looking for a new supplier.

What gas companies doy ou guys use? Would you reccommend them, etc?

I chatted to British Gas this morning and they informed me of their direct debit scheme which brings prices down to much more acceptable levels even after the price hike - infact the higher band ends up ebing cheaper than I'm actually paying at the moment but is still around 1p more than Powergen is offering - although Powergen may very well end up putting their own prices up at somepoint in the future).

Suggestions? Reccomendation?

Scottish Power (I think - aitkendrum handles the bills online), and we're on a locked-in price scheme until April 2007, which we're very happy with, given the increases.

We made a decision to go with nPower on Juice for our electricity so it made sense to have the gas with the same provider. The price is pretty good as far as I can tell, but more importantly I like the idea that all the electricity we use comes from renewable sources.

You can get info here...

Try this web site: http://www.uswitch.com/
It allows you to compare the prices of various power companies. Scottish Power worked out the cheapest for us.

I'm with London Energy and our last bill came to about £130 - my house is about the same size as your and we have three people as well, so might be worth checking it out.

I've tried british gas/London/Scottish and a few others (mostly because of moving house so much).
Honestly?
Much of a muchness.
Seriously.
SHORT term gains can be held from swapping suppliers, but the global increase in prices means the cost is really going up.

I have also done the same with a lot of telephone operators.
I stay with BT nowadays.

Go figure.

We're duel fuel British gas. I also have a service contract with them for all our kitchen applences and plumbing - even the drains!

We cut our fuel bills recently by having a new combi boiler and central heating system installed instead of the old back burner.

Face it gas prices (and elecy prices given so much is produced by gas powered generators) are just going to keep going up. The only way to get lower bills is by using less.
