New boiler installed but still on the Economy 7 tariff?

Back

If we’ve recently installed a new gas central heating system into your property and you’re still on the electric tariff, Economy 7 – now might be a good time to change!

If your home was previously heated using electric storage heaters, you will most likely have been on an Economy 7 electricity tariff.

This will have provided you with seven hours of cheap rate electricity each night to charge up your electric storage heaters and immersion heaters by charging you a higher than average tariff for day time electricity.

Without electric heating appliances to charge up overnight, it is highly likely that you will be paying more than you need to in order to run your appliances during the day.

If you are on an Economy 7 electricity tariff, we would recommend that you investigate switching to a single rate electricity tariff. This could be with your existing electricity supplier or you may wish to find a new one.

Why not check out a generic comparison website to see how the change will benefit you. We recommend using either www.moneysupermarket.com or www.uswitch.com

If you have any questions about this please get in contact with the Better Homes Yorkshire team on 0800 597 1500.
