Why switch?

Switching your energy supplier could help you:

  • Save money on your bill

  • Be flexible to switch in the future

If you pay your energy bill you can switch your tariff, but always check your bill for exit fees if you are on a fixed rate contract.

Which rate should you choose?

It depends whether you want a cheap or flexible tariff, but you can choose between a fixed rate or a variable rate energy deal:

  • Fixed: This is usually the cheapest tariff because the price is fixed and protected against future price increases for a set period of time. Your bills may change based on how much energy you use, but the unit rate stays the same.

  • Variable: This gives you more flexibility because there is no fixed end date for your contract, but it is usually the more expensive option. Variable rates are often the default tariff of most energy companies, so shop around to get the best rate.

Should you combine your gas and electricity?

It is worth considering because most energy suppliers offer you a discount for combining both services with them as a dual fuel tariff.

It may still be cheaper to get your gas and electricity separately, so make sure you shop around to find the best deal.
