British Gas Departments
It’s easy to think of British Gas as just being an energy supplier, but in fact there’s much more to the company than that. It’s the UK’s leading energy and home services provider – which is why the British Gas phone number gets so many calls every day.
As one of the largest fuel suppliers British Gas offers a range of tariffs including fixed price deals to give you maximum control over your energy costs. It’s also signed up to the government’s Warm Home Discount scheme to help pensioners and others who are struggling with their fuel bills. It’s leading the way in installing smart meters to help people monitor and control their energy usage too.
Heating and Maintenance
As well as supplying gas and electricity it maintains boilers and heating systems and does installations of new energy efficient boilers. Recently it has moved into home automation systems with products including Hive. This allows you to control your heating from your smartphone when you’re out and about so that you don’t waste money heating an empty property.
When it comes to maintaining your home, British Gas offers boiler maintenance on a contract basis or as one-off repairs. It can supply a new boiler if you need one and install upgrades to existing systems like improved controls, magnetic filters and new radiators. The company is signed up to the government Green Deal scheme which can help you finance changes that make your home more efficient.
The company can maintain other gas appliances like your fire and cooker too. In addition British Gas offers plumbing and electrical cover so it can take care of most aspects of your home maintenance. Again this cover is available on a contract or one-off basis.
Helping You Go Green
We’re all being encouraged to be greener in our energy usage these days, and British Gas can help with insulating your home. It can even install charging points for electric vehicles and solar panels to allow you to generate your own electricity and reduce your energy bills.
If you’re a landlord, British Gas can arrange gas safety certificates for your properties. It can also provide maintenance packages to keep the heating in your rental properties in working order. You can arrange cover for plumbing and electrics too so you have minimum hassle if your tenants experience problems.
As if all that wasn’t enough, you can arrange insurance for your home and contents through British Gas too.
