I looked at this a few months back the tariff it comes with is terrible, you end up paying about £200 for the nest. I ended up going with First Utility but on a better tariff and just bought a nest from the screefix deal.

I got a quote last time this offer was on and they wanted to charge me over £120 a month. I only pay £69 with E.O.N!
I'm an existing customer. I'm paying £81 a month. i can switch to get £70 a month AND get a free nest thermo. You are a legend


EDIT. Not sure now. It doesnt say for new customers only ????

I made this mistake a few years ago for a Cosy thermostat. Sure it does work and I took it with me when I moved home (self reinstalled it, very easy) but it’s a closed API and I have now devolved into home automation so am looking to swap it out for something more interfaceable. Also stuck in a high price plan with dual £30 exit fees till June for the privilege whoop whoop!
As mentioned the tariff this comes with is terrible as it’s attached to a 24 month contract with high monthly payments. It’s far from “free”
Amazing that people are comparing their energy just by monthly cost. Use a proper comparison site like mse to compare your deals, monthly payments mean nothing as you could be under paying with one and over paying with another.

Wouldn’t go back to First Utility if they paid me. Shocking.

£200 for the nest and instal isn't bad along with being able to spread the cost over your bills.
I would personally go your route though.

As a counter to that, I have been with them for 3 years and never had a problem. Not shocking?!

Especially with installation included. If I could buy one for 200 with installation with cash, I would

If you use the same amount of units on each, then lower monthly cost is a perfectly fine way to compare it.

I always check the unit price behind it, but it's kind of irrelevant

MSE is exactly what I'm quoting from. I signed up to EON through MSE. The monthly cost is worked out on a 12 month average.

The OP only posts first utility deals. This is spam

Sorry my mistake
Not sure what all the hate is about on here. I have just taken this deal. My current tariff with first utility was 5p more on elec per unit and .5p per unit more on gas.

Rates were

Electric - 14.97p pKWh - 33p standing charge
Gas - 3.02p pKWh 31p standing charge

The tariff in question was not available for me online, so i just called them. Took me through the quotes and based on my meter readings, it works out a couple of quid cheaper than my current tariff. That's because the standing charge is higher on the tariff required, but the unit rate is lower. All in all, its worked out cheaper than my current deal, and it comes with smart meters and a nest thermostat with installation. Yes, you might get a slightly cheaper deal from another supplier, but this seemed a decent deal to me, given that the best price for a nest with installation is about £270
Not sure if still available, but I got a deal through TCB at Xmas for this but with £100 cashback as well. Tariff was marginally higher than some other providers.

The ones that come from energy companies have very strange firmware.

I got mine with NPower 2 years ago. 3 months ago, it kept popping up with messages about nPower, and about how they wanted to "monitor my use" and other strange things. I contacted nest about it and they confirmed they do indeed put a custom firmware on ones that come from power companies... and yes.. they share your information with that provider even if you leave them. It's in their T&Cs but of course nobody is going to read pages and pages of legalese when they buy.


So if you want all your energy useage / device usage / statistics sent to an energy company even after you leave them then by all means go ahead. But if this surprises you and you don't like the idea... don't get one subsidised by an energy company.
Cheers OP. I've gone for it. Haven't changed my deal for a few years & wasn't on the most competitive deal anyway.. so the (expected) annual cost for this is actually a little cheaper than what I'm currently paying.

Potential £100 cashback for new customers via Quidco too.

I did the same but now i'm thinking of cancelling the order. I plugged the numbers into compare the market and the deal is quite pricey
Ok, so using comparison engine, this is £173 more per year more than the next cheapets first utility deal (on my usage). £220 more expensive per year than scotish power. Its locked in for 2 years so.....

I'll be cancelling and buying from screwfix

Try citizens advice. They have a tool, just plug in the anual usage figures First Util just gave you on your quote
Is it possible to sign up, wait to receive the thermostat, then switch to Bulb Energy who do a cheap tariff and also offer a promotion where Bulb will pay any exit fees?

Maybe. The exit fee was 100 quid (50 per fuel)
Who owns the nest thermostat when it's installed, the customer or first utility?
Get the install done, cancel the plan - £100 plus a little moving hassle

Yes, I've been mulling over the idea for a while. Only reason I haven't is I've got dual zone heating and need 2 thermostats. The plan itself is far more expensive than the one I'm on elsewhere.
They won’t accept me because of my meter. I’m currently with British Gas and I have the new smartness meters.
