The UK's largest energy company, featured at Zyra's affiliate website
In the words of British Gas: "As the largest energy company in the UK, with over 15 million customers and an extensive product range, British Gas continues to be the first choice for customers home needs". The British Gas brand has a wealth of history and recognition behind it. Welcome Back to British Gas! This page about British Gas originally described British Gas as the main gas company in the UK and the review went on to explain about the availability of Natural Gas at a reasonable price in the UK and other services offered by Centrica. The page spoke well of British Gas and was good for business. The review quoted the words of British Gas themselves regarding the choosing of a central heating system from British Gas, and discussed installing gas and electric heating, showers, radiators, etc. There was a period when this page was reduced, at the request of British Gas, but now we are back advertising the place again!
Some more from British Gas: "Committed to providing an exemplary service, British Gas launched its online home, house.co.uk, in 2001 making access to our products and services even easier. Designed to be the leading website for home needs in the UK, house.co.uk aims to provide an online home management service designed to help customers run their homes more smoothly".
"Against the background of a highly competitive market, we continue to be the first choice for millions of customers, highlighting the inherent strength in the British Gas and House brands. We offer consumers an exceptional customer service experience that differentiates us from other brands, making our products and services very successful with consumers".
It is true that the UK energy market is indeed a highly competitive market for electricity and Gas, and it would be foolish to ignore the fact that there exist energy deal comparison sites such as uSwitch and EnergyLinx, but as British Gas are the leading energy supply company they must be confident they can win against the competition by offering a better deal to the customer. This kind of thing is a hotly debated subject, and you should look at all sides of the story and make your own mind up. British Gas in the form of house.co.uk have a lot to say about this, (note the rollercoaster allegory in which British Gas shows you the gas price falling), but they have their critics too, for example see the material provided by uSwitch about the alleged British Gas Price Rise. Freedom of choice is important, and it's up to you as the customer to make the right choice. Choose wisely! Also, it's not just the price to consider, but the quality of service.

Update 2008/05: British Gas are now giving away free electric lightbulbs! Economy bulbs, that is, not gaslamps. However, there is some limelight to be had.
In 2010/11, British Gas had some rather odd TV ads. These featured people who were animated characters but with live-action faces, resulting in the ads being described by some people as "disturbing". However, whether they were disturbing or not, they were memorable. Also, the ads were set in a universe where people lived on little planets which were "their world" and the house would be the main feature. This is very good philosophically, and it may be that the famous British Gas company has hit upon something which has a deep meaning expressed as a metaphor.
As a matter of interest, British Gas mains gas supplied to British homes used to be "Town Gas" which was made from coal, and these days it is Natural Gas which is actually methane. Methane gas in its pure form has no smell, so for safety reasons the gas company adds a distinctive smell to the gas. The company, British Gas, as well as being a supplier of gas, is also a supplier of electricity, which may seem odd, but it's a competitive market, and they are in the energy business. Methane gas will never run out. The "natural gas" under the ground will be exhausted some day, but methane will never end. The clue is in the term "natural gas". Eating baked beans may give an insight about the supply of methane. The gas is produced from organic stuff being digested, rotting, or otherwise being chemically decomposed. The smell might change, but it will still be flammable gas. Some people have been running their cars on natural gas for years.
