An important note: busy times vs hold times vs best time to call
When we refer to busy or less busy times, we are talking about the volume of calls. The busiest times are when the most people are calling this Gulf Power phone number (least busy times have fewer people calling). This high call volume does not necessarily mean that you will have a long hold time when you call. Companies like Gulf Power staff their call centers differently based on the time of day and day of the week, so you may experience a shorter wait on hold at the busiest of times. When we refer to the best time to call, we are referring to the optimal combination of lower call volume and shorter wait times.

We measured the shortest hold times to be on Tuesday. The longest wait in the queue on average occurs on Thursday.
The best time to call

More Ways to Contact Gulf Power Customer Service

There are of course other ways to contact Gulf Power customer service besides the phone. Below we list the best ones, by medium.
X (formerly Twitter) - Customer Service
Use the link to connect with customer service through Twitter
Gulf Power, like many companies, provides customer service on the X platform (formerly Twitter). While it rarely entails live dialogue with a customer service rep, this channel can yield rapid response times and can be a useful option if you have an X/Twitter account.
Gulf Power's website - Customer Service
Use this link to find customer service help through their website
As a last, sometimes only, resort- Gulf Power customer service can be accessed through their website. This can entail digging through help articles before finding a form and "being allowed" to submit a problem to their team, and rarely leads to a real-time conversation, which is why GetHuman does not recommend this unless it's the only way.
