Does anybody have any experience with how to change electricity supplier. I've been trying to switch from EDP to Galp (my gas is supplied by galp and I'm hoping for a better deal). I have an apartment in Alvor which is used for 6 months of the year only. The main reason I want to change is that I am charged for the six months when there is zero electricity usage (between €25 and €30 per month). I've tried to contact Galp, but I just keep getting automated replies. T

Hi all, I am searching for a reliable and local English speaking Plumber in the area of Armacao de Pera.  I need two toilet cisterns replacing and the valves renewing.  So far have struggled to identify a local with required skills.  Recommendations most welcome - thank you.

Has anyone used Helder Martins in Loule for plumbing work?  We have had poor workmanship done by them and an adamant refusal to rectify the fault and we would like to take further action. We  would be interested in hearing from others who have used them.

Recently, at home, we have observed a sharp bite from unknown, invisible pest. It also migrated to the bedroom where the sleep is often disturbed by the same offending pest´s sharp bite. If anyone experienced similar nuisance, sharing the experience and ways to exterminate the pest will be much appreciated. Thanks, Simon,

Hi you all, i know EDP used to be the main supplier back then - which company do you recommend me going with now that there are more suppliers and how quickly can gas & electricity be up & running? Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

Hi you all, I need someone to thoroughly clean an apartment in Albufeira that has stood empty for a long time. I believe this would be a job for a professional cleaning company rather than a cleaning lady as special chemicals will need to be used to clean the bathroom properly etc etc.Can you recommend someone that is good value, is trustworthy and does an excellent job?Thank you in advance
