Gas, Electric, economy 7. Eon or southern (or someone else) ... confused..

Right so a man from Southern Electric knocked on the door last night .. Been looking to compare utility suppliers for ages so thought I would listen to what he had to say ..
He informed me that we have an economy 7 meter which is means our bills are more expensive.. and swopping to them meant that they would fit a new meter free if charge(non E7) and the rate would drop from 29p per unit to 14p per unit... so great :)
Is this really the case.. how can a meter decide how much you pay .. we are with Eon standard energy plan .. I have signed with Southern is it the right decision .. ?
Any input much appreciated :)

I would cancel until you have had time to do some homework. We get people knocking around all the time. If you are on a monthly bill then I would ring Eon and speak with them. I have just come out of a two year capped deal and saw that other companies were offering cheap deals. I phoned Customer service and the guy straight away said that I was on an expensive package and changed it over the phone.

I am not proclaiming to be an expert and if you are on a card meter (if thats what they call them) then sorry what I have said won't help
man at the door says it all think about it
im paying 12.75 per unit
and im with ebico

Did you check out how much Eon charge for the same service?

I never buy anything from door knockers they are all on commision, most lie through their teeth to get a sale.
Do it your self dont listen to anyone who is trying to sell you somthing they want there cut.
Step 1 work out how much Gas+Elec you used in the last year.
Step 2 Convert in to kwhs use this tool for gas Elec norm is in kwhs

Step 3 go to uswitch its independant so you get a ture comparison thet also take Economy 7 into account.
Step 4 see best deal they check if or will offer and cashback towards the deal.
Step 5 Switch and save money.

Haha I get these all the time, he says

SE: "did you know that your unit cost has dropped?"
me: no
SE: "Would you like to get your unit cost dropped?"
me: yes
SE: "To do this I need to come in and speak to you for 10 minutes"
me: no
SE: "okay so I'll just put on here your okay for me to do this for you"
me: okay

nothing has happened, I'm still paying the same damn unit cost! as I'm with E-on!

Oh and to answer your question economy 7 is cheaper at night, so if you work 9-5 then put all your washing and drying on during the night, think it's after 9pm.
