There’s no getting away from the fact that we’re living in challenging economic times. As a result, we know you are looking more carefully than ever at what you spend on your household bills. That's why we want to help you keep your energy bills as low as possible and get the best value from our tariffs.

Use our checklist below to find out if you're on the best British Gas tariff for you and that you're getting all the discounts, benefits and rewards you're entitled to.

Check your tariff

Are you on the right tariff for you?

We know that choosing an energy tariff is complicated. To help, we have simplified our tariffs to just two types, Variable and Fixed, so now it's easy to ensure you're on the one that suits you. Our Variable tariffs change price in line with the cost of energy, meaning your price could go up or down. Our Fixed tariffs will remain at the same rates for a fixed term giving you further peace of mind. To find out if we can offer you a better deal, use our energy price calculator. The calculator searches our available tariffs and picks out the cheapest based on the energy you use.

Insulate your home

Are you eligible for free insulation?

You could save up to £140 on your energy bill with loft insulation and up to £160 with cavity insulation every year.[1] Insulation locks in your heat so you won't need to have your heating on as often, helping to save you money. It's straightforward and takes less than a day to install.

Direct Debit

Are you on the right payment method?

Switch to Direct Debit and you could save on your bills. Not only is paying by Direct Debit more convenient, it also spreads the costs of bills evenly across the year so that you don't have to pay more in the winter when you’re using more energy.

Actual energy savings will vary depending on individual circumstances.

The discount will be continuously applied to your bill throughout your billing period if you use a credit meter or applied to your meter at least once a year if you use a prepayment meter. If you cancel this agreement (for example by switching to another energy supplier), you will receive a Dual Fuel discount for the number of days you have been with us during that one year period
