Saving on Your Energy Bill the Easy Way: a Guide to Switching Supplier

Posted by Guest author on 27-Oct-2022 08:00:00

The monetary benefits of comparing the energy market and switching suppliers are well-documented in the media, and have been for years. With just a few clicks of the mouse, or a 10-minute phone call, the consumer have the power to change the company that supplies our gas and electricity, and could save potentially hundreds of pounds of year by moving to a more competitive tariff.

The average savings a UK household can make in a year just from switching their supplier is £211.95. Aside from the lower bills and the new supplier name on your energy bill, nothing else whatsoever changes; the actual gas and electricity supply all stays the same, and there is no disruption to your supply. In a matter of weeks, you could be paying significantly less for the energy you use to charge your smartphone, power your washing machine and heat your home – it’s really that simple.

Plus, there has never been a better time to switch your energy supplier. The energy companies – namely, the Big Six – increase their prices quite frequently, which can be a financial strain if you aren’t on a fixed-price energy tariff. Plus, with winter setting in soon and the mercury already starting to drop, it’s likely that our indoor heating is going to start seeing a lot more action – so any savings we can make on these unavoidable bills are guaranteed to be welcome.
