If you need to get in touch, please see our contact details. We are fully committed to making sure all our customers are treated fairly, as a minimum we will ensure:
Whilst we will constantly review how we work to ensure we keep delivering exceptional service, we do accept that occasional things will go wrong. If this does happen, please get in touch and we will put things right. However, should you need to make a complaint you can follow our Complaints Procedure to ensure you get the right outcome.
We also want to be sure you understand your rights within the energy market and you can find out more in this document from the Citizen’s Advice Bureau.
For those customers who need a bit of extra support we operate a Priority Services Register, which means we can take care of your needs, whether this is providing bills and communications in a different format such as large print or Braille, or making sure you get advanced notice of any planned supply interruptions in your area.
Anybody who is of pensionable age, registered disabled or chronically sick can be registered.
A password scheme will be used by any of our agents should they call at your property. This password will also be able to be used by you, if you need to speak to us.
Name a friend(s) or relative(s) that you trust to look after your account for you and to be the point of contact for you.
If it’s easier for you to have bills and letters in a different format, please let us know and we will arrange this.
We will also have your details added to your local Network Operator’s and Gas Transporter’s Priority Service Register so they can get in touch with you if there is a supply interruption. They will also make sure you are looked after and kept safe.
From time to time an authorised engineer may be sent to visit your home. There are several reasons why we do this, including;
Here at OneSelect we take the safety of our customers very seriously, so before you let them (or anyone) into your home, we recommend you ask;
The engineers will always have photo identity cards. They’ll will show this to you when they arrive at your property.
The engineers will also be wearing branded clothing and will carry identification at all times. For your own safety, we advise you to check their identity card immediately and if you are doubt, there will be a contact number on the back of the card which you can call to verify the identity of the engineer. If you still have doubts, please give us a call on 0333 21 25 973. Sometimes, we may send a sub-contractor to your home instead, and they may not necessarily have the branded clothing required and their work vehicle may not be branded either. BUT, in all cases they will still carry an identity card.
When you switched to OneSelect, you may have set up a password with us which we will share with authorised engineers and meter reading agents. They will use this password when they visit you at home. This password is only known to OneSelect and the representatives we have authorised to carry out services at your property.
As a customer of OneSelect, even if you provide us with regular meter readings every month we will still send an authorised meter reading agent to your home to take meter readings at least once every two years, this is essential to ensure that safety checks are carried out and your electricity and gas meters are safe and working properly.
If someone does visit you at your home and says they are from OneSelect, please don’t let them in unless you’re absolutely sure. You can call our Customer Care Centre on 0333 21 25 973, to check the person’s identification and to ensure they are a genuine representative of OneSelect.
Sometimes, an agent representing the Revenue Protection Service (RPS) may have to visit your home if they are required to investigate suspected meter tampering or that someone may have tried to steal electricity or gas.
When you signed up to be a OneSelect customer, you agreed to provide us and our representatives access to your property when required. For more information, read our terms and conditions.
The safety of you and your family is very important to OneSelect.

Unsafe gas appliances can produce a highly poisonous gas called carbon monoxide (CO) and this can cause death as well as serious long-term health problems. CO is produced by the incomplete burning of natural gas or liquefied petroleum gas (LPG). This happens when a gas appliance has been incorrectly fitted, badly repaired or poorly maintained and it can also occur if flues, chimneys or vents are blocked.
Oil and solid fuels such as coal, wood, petrol and oil can also produce carbon monoxide.
CO poisoning occurs when you breathe in the gas and it replaces the oxygen in the bloodstream. Without oxygen, your body tissue and cells die. Even small amounts of the gas can cause CO poisoning, and long-term effects can include paralysis and brain damage.
If you suspect that carbon monoxide is present in your home you must seek medical advice immediately.
There are several symptoms to look out for, including;
CO symptoms are like those of flu, food poisoning, viral infections and fatigue. That’s why it’s quite common for people to mistake this very dangerous poisoning for something else. Symptoms only occur when you are at home and seem to disappear when you leave home and other members of your household, including pets are experiencing similar symptoms at the same time.
If you suspect a leak you must take immediate action:
Any of the following could be a sign of CO present in your home;
Faulty appliances in your home can lead to CO poisoning.
Carbon monoxide is most commonly emitted from poorly installed or maintained gas appliances.
