Find the Cheapest Gas Tariff for the Biggest Savings
Posted on Apr 5, 2017
Possibly the best reason for sourcing the cheapest gas tariff for a business is to learn whether they are paying more than they need to for their gas needs.
It’s highly likely that they are doing so and there are huge savings to be made for those firms that make the switch to a new business gas supplier.
However, it’s also highly likely that the company owners are too busy to take a thorough examination of all the business gas supply offerings and they may find simpler to remain with their current supplier.
This may be an expensive course of action to take since the savings that can be made will range from hundreds to thousands of pounds which will impact the firm’s bottom line.
Finding a new gas supplier is surprisingly easy and the government has encouraged competition in the marketplace so that more suppliers means that most businesses will benefit with a choice of lower gas prices.
Finding the lowest commercial gas quote
There will be firms that would prefer not to switch and remain with one of the ‘big six’ suppliers but there are other reasons for switching to another supplier and it’s not just about finding the lowest commercial gas quote.
That’s because suppliers appreciate that they can offer other attractive reasons for making the switch, including improved customer service and some firms also undertake a business gas audit.
Obviously, this means that suppliers of business gas will not only offer better prices so the customer will save lots of money but also help them use less gas to ensure that their savings are increased as a result.
For those businesses that simply do not have the time to appreciate the depth of the market offering, there are some simple solutions.
The first is to find a business gas comparison website which will highlight how much the firm may be overpaying for their gas supply.
However, these websites should be treated with some caution since the price on offer may not be the price the firm can access since the gas supplier will need to tailor their offering to the firm’s own needs.
The most popular websites to compare business gas prices
In addition, the most popular websites to compare business gas prices are probably not searching the entire market to find the best deals on tariffs for the firm to make better savings.
There’s also a possibility of using energy brokers who will conduct a thorough search of potential gas suppliers to deliver the savings a firm is looking for.
Considering that 40% of firms, according to government figures, have not looked at switching business gas suppliers means many of them are probably on a contract that has automatically rolled over.
Inevitably, these prices per unit of gas are likely to be much higher than being offered by other firms for new customers.
Also, there are other factors for a firm to look at cheaper gas supply prices and that’s the prospect of energy prices rising over the coming months and years.
Most suppliers will allow a customer to lock into a cheap gas price to help offset any potential future cost increases.
This ability to set the price of gas for a set period also helps boost the firm’s cash flow because they will know what their energy bills are going to be and so budgeting becomes easier.
Undertaking an energy audit
In addition, by undertaking an energy audit it is possible to highlight those areas where savings can be made and the efficiencies delivered over the longer term.
Again, while most firms could quite easily switch suppliers by visiting a comparison website and opt to use a ‘big six’ firm, they may lose out on the prospect of lower prices and ways to improve long-term efficiency gains by utilising the experience of another supplier.
It should also be appreciated that the process of finding cheaper gas prices for a business should be a trouble-free, transparent and quick process with no hidden gimmicks or costs.
There’s very little reason for businesses looking for cheaper gas prices not to look at other potential suppliers and the switching process has never been easier.
Indeed, it only takes a few minutes to source a better quote for business gas supply and by using the services of experts, a firm can be reassured that they are getting the best price and help with the switchover process.
This switchover process is a seamless transaction and there will be no loss of gas supply to the business while it is undertaken.
