Some answers for you

We keep these updated, so if there’s a question we have not answered, let us know.

Emergency or Smell Gas?

Smell Gas:
Call the National Gas Emergency Helpline on 0800 111 999.

If you can smell gas or think you have a leak:

  • DO open all of your doors and windows
  • DO check all of your gas appliances including your boiler are switched off
  • DO turn off your gas at the meter (if its somewhere safe) and then wait outside of your house
  • DO NOT smoke, light a match or fire or use any other naked flame.
  • DO NOT use any electrical devices, switch any lights or any electric sockets
  • DO NOT go back into your house until you’ve got the all clear

Power cut?

Power Cut:
Call your local electricity distributor on 105 for help and advice.

Your local distributor will be able to provide details of any outages or issues in your area and will work to fix them.

What happens when I switch to Igloo Energy?

We take care of all of it for you.

How long does it take?

It typically takes around 3 weeks, during this time we’ll be talking with your old supplier and arranging everything. Your supply will not be interrupted through the switch.

Do I have to contact my existing supplier?

No, we’ll do this on your behalf and arrange a switch date with them. We’ll agree a meter reading with them and then they’ll send you a final bill. We recommend you cancel your direct debit once you’ve paid your final bill, although you can cancel it earlier but you need to remember you might still owe your old supply for energy you’ve already used.

When is my first Direct Debit collected?

We will collect your first Direct Debit on or around your supply start date, this is typically 21 days after you sign up. We will then collect it monthly thereafter.

We will email you before we collect your first Direct Debit with details of the amount and the date.

Bills and payments

When do I receive my first bill?

We will issue your first statement around a month after your supply start date and monthly thereafter.

How often do you review my Direct Debit?

We will review your Direct Debit at least every six months to ensure you don’t get any bill shocks. We will contact you if we think it needs to be increased or decreased.

Can I change my Direct Debit date?

Your Direct Debit is linked to your supply start date. We’re unable to change the date of your DD until after the first three months payments. If you then want to change it, simply call one of our team on 0333 405 5555 and we’ll organise it for you.

Why have I been billed with an estimated reading?

Until you are on a smart meter, we will need you to provide your readings on a monthly basis – we send you a reminder when this is due.  If you have entered a reading and this has not been used, then there may be a mistake in the reading, so rather than give you an astronomical bill, we have estimated your consumption. If you haven’t given us a meter read we will also use an estimate.  If you have any concerns in providing a reading, let us know by email or telephone and we will help.

What if I have an existing balance with my current supplier?

Once they’ve received a final meter reading from us, they’ll send you a final bill. If they owe you money, this should be returned to you within a couple of weeks.

Its worth considering cancelling your direct debit straight away if you have built up a big credit balance so that they don’t take any further funds.

I'm moving home, how do I tell you?

Contact us by email at: team@igloo.energy or give us a call on 03333 405 5555. We’ll need a final meter reading from you and if you give us your new property details we’ll get you set up there too.

What if I already have a smart meter?

You can still switch to us, but right now we’d treat it as a normal meter.

We’re busy building systems which will allow us to talk to most of the installed smart meters out there but we’re not quite there yet.

If you don’t want to switch yet then make sure you register your interest and we’ll keep you updated.
