UK Gas and Electricity Comparison

Benefits of switching gas and electricity suppliers

The UK domestic energy market is incredibly competitive, and there are a large number of suppliers vying for your business. Each supplier offers many different tariffs, each aimed at a different type of customer. This rich, diverse nature of the market is also a frustrating source of confusion for customers who are unsatisfied by how much they are paying for their gas and electricity supplies. The problem lies with the sheer number of suppliers and tariffs, and if that wasn't enough, the huge number of new tariffs released - it's around twenty new energy tariffs EVERY month!

So what can be done about this problem? How can you pay less for your gas and electricity? The answer is two-fold.

1. Change Your Supplier

First, change your current supplier. Why you might ask? Well, if it's been anything more than around six months since you last changed, then there is certainly a better energy tariff that has been released in the meantime. So why continue to pay and lower your gas and electricity bills today by comparing your energy tariffs with the latest ones on the market.

2. Switch Your Gas and Electricity Supplier Regularly

This second angle of attack is very important - for the same reasons outlined in point 1. above. As soon as you've been on any gas or electricity tariff for more than six months, the likelihood is that a better tariff has been released since you last switched. The only way to stay ahead of the game is to keep switching your gas and electricity tariffs on a regular basis. Ideally you should be switching every six to nine months.

So doesn't this all seem like a lot of hassle? Well not at all! The thing is, you can save a significant amount of money and reduce your energy bills by hundreds of pounds per year. For most people this is a decent amount of money! So the thing to do is find a way to switch energy tariffs  easily and quickly.
