Benefits of switching gas and electricity suppliers

Why should I switch my gas and electricity suppliers?

You may well be wondering why you should switch your gas and electricity suppliers. You might have been with your current suppliers for years, and received a good service. So why would you want to change your energy supplier?

Well, since the energy market was opened up, there are now many many suppliers, all vying for your business. Regional energy companies are now permitted to sign up customers nationwide, and new players have entered the domestic gas and electricity market.

The result of this increased competition in gas and electricity supplies is simple - better deals for the customer. However, you as the customer do not automatically get the best deal. The gas and electricity companies are continuously releasing new tariffs, which offer better pricing, improved service or other benefits. The problem is that these new tariffs are not offered to existing customers unless the customer requests them. Most customers would never know about the best gas and electricity tariffs, which is where Switchomatic comes in.

Switchomatic allows you to quickly and easily compare the current best gas and electricity tariffs against the tariff you are currently on, clearly displaying the amount you could save per year. In many cases, the savings can amount to hundreds of pounds!

Additionally, Switchomatic also shows you additional features of each gas or electricity tariff, such as the percentage of energy that comes from renewable sources, or whether the billing is paper based or online.

The biggest savings can be made by getting both your gas AND electricity from the same supplier - this is known as a "dual fuel" tariff. Paying by monthly Direct Debit can also reduce the cost of your fuel bills.

So if you want to save money on your fuel bills, don't delay! Search for better deals with Switchomatic today, and start saving immediately. The tariff search and switching process only takes a few minutes, and it's really easy. Just think about what you could be spending the extra money on!
