Has anyone else finding an increase in their gas & electric last few days , since I’ve had message on app saying my new price cap is on display but not to worry as am still being charged current usage charges but I look at my smart meter and it’s not what it’s been in the past and everything is fine looking at tariffs but am over the odds what it’s been previously . Curious to know if anyone else been thinking this way too .

The British Gas app is a total waste of time - my real time gas and electric usage have never been visible. I did ask if the problem was my smart meters or due to a software issue - I have made a customer complaint regarding this, but not sure if there is anyone in the British Gas office to deal with it as no response to date……. Was a customer of Peoples Energy who gave excellent customer service until they went down the pan and British Gas took us on. Very Dissapointed……

Where is my refund gone from Bristol energy i have been waiting weeks and weeks for my credit of £84 to come across to my account, you are an absolute shower of a company, and i am reporting you to the regulator.
Asked by Derek (11 months ago)
Why have you not sent me a cheque for the credit that was on my pre- payment gas-meter that you changed for a Smart meter in September 2021. Despite the four promises from your operatives of “ A cheque will be in the post, within the next fourteen days.” ?
Asked by Andrew Brown (1 year ago)
Why are you wasting my time? I was supposed to have another appointment from someone from your company as I DO NOT want any a new boiler install to the other side of kitchen.I need to have 2 new shafts I don’t know the measurement of the space between the shafts so can’t get it done yet. If you’ve organised an appointment with someone in your company not an engineer then why are you lying to me? Had no heating or hot water since January.SO NOt read from a ridiculous script employ builders, plasters and joiners and don’t sell boilers until you have done so.It’s the only way for you to respect customers which after seeing your reviews you just want the profits and don’t care at all.

I have homecare cover does replacement band A boiler still have a £200.00 reduction. £35 over 5 years is £2,100.00 Which is more than a boiler would cost. The. Average cost of a combi boiler is £6-800.00 why are yours so expensive? Would the sill be no apr for 3 years on a replacement boiler with homecare? Why don’t you show the boilers on your website with prices all other companies do? Why are unceasing number of customers leavin British Gas? How does the Hive work? Does a replacement cost more to have it moved asap. Are there any other reductions you could eg I live alone. And use a wheelchair?As well a drug resistant epilepsy. Could you send hard copies of details from advisor.Emails on iPhones are to easy to accidently delete.

My new boiler comes with a 5 year warranty, but they do the first service on the day it’s fitted, that can’t be right. It’s like buying a new car and being told they have carried out the first years service on the day you pick it up. British Gas don’t even respond when you make a complaint.

Asked by Furlong (1 year ago)
Is this acceptable
Asked by D (1 year ago)
You will note I sent 2 messages 3 days ago, and no reply to date. If I do not get a response within the next few days I will simply change my supplier. A pity because I’m sure my issue could be easily resolved. Today’s date and time 4/6/21 3p.m. Is anyone there?
Asked by Alasdair (1 year ago)
You have a spelling error in your response box!
Asked by Alasdair (1 year ago)
I have just received a renewal quote for a 2-year contract. I know I about to be short changed so if I don’t get a sensible response I will be seeking a new supplier. My night time rate has gone up from 9.075 to 14.532. The Go Comparison site are offering a night rate of 12.143. My electricity is 80% night rate which makes a significant difference. Explain please.

Is anyone else having problems accessing their online BG bill ? After some time unable to access this , I contacted them last week and was told that they could access it but I cannot but still was not told why and what the problem was ! (SUSPICIOUS ) I was put through to a tech department who still did not explain it , but said they were looking into it. I then requested a paper bill , which has not yet arrived . --- still cannot access the account online ! WHAT IS GOING ON !

If the gas meter is capped off is it safe
Asked by Kelly (3 years ago)
I am in dispute regarding an electricity bill. I only moved to this property at the end of January. I have seen a statement on their site (unfortunately I cannot bring it up again) that suggests that missed meter readings are adjusted when a future reading is received. As this property was only partially occupied prior to my occupancy I have a strong suspicion that I am paying for the previous owners electricity. Has anybody else had this experience?
Asked by Linda Adams (3 years ago)
Why would a low rate electric meter (ie night) record a reading when I just had electric heaters and not storage heaters?
Asked by Linda M Adams (3 years ago)
is it worth having the IQ fitted, they are offering to fit it for free. whats the catch to the customer
Asked by chris harries (4 years ago)
Am I liable by the law (of British Gas) to have to pay them a leaving fee if I leave them and change suppliers because they've messed me around for so took nearly six months and countless phone calls for them to transfer my BG account from my old address to my new address then when they finally fitted my pay as you go smart meters September 2018 they didn't work properly, so 19th February 2019 after another gazillion phone calls an engineer came and replaced the smart meters with the old style pay as you go meters, he said the smart meters didn't work because of a fault with the signal he also was promised me a new payment Gas Card would be with me by Saturday at the latest, when it didn't arrive i rang BG again and was told to go to the shop and ask for a Gas RTI Card which I did, also giving him the code number BG had given me, but that card didn't work. Now some little jobsworth at BG has just told me "They don't send out Gas Cards if you change your meters over and the man in the shop did the RTI Gas Card wrong and that I had to go back and tell him to do it right!! The saying "The straw that broke the camels back" comes to mind, so are they within their rights to make me pay for their incompetence if (when) I leave

Asked by mike (4 years ago)
We have homecare cover with British gas we have updated our boiler to a wocester combi if we contact them will they reduce the monthly payments
Asked by Palmer (4 years ago)
Nope, they will charge you more money every year, regardless of your new boiler. I got a new top of the range combi boiler last year and British gas charged me an EXTRA £95 a year in my annual payments. When I queried this I was told that the charge would've happened anyway and there was nothing they could do. Given that they were charging me almost £400 a year BEFORE the increase , and they were willing to offer new customers a much better price regardless of boiler age or condition, I cancelled the contract with British Gas Homecare. Since then they have been hounding me via phone (4-5 times daily).
