Getting the best deal on your household bills could save you thousands of pounds a year, however many people continue to pay the same suppliers for the same service because of the time involved to compare prices and switch to a better deal.
To help, we’ve teamed up with Energy Helpline, which makes it easy to compare prices and services offered by the UK’s energy providers.
Bills: If you’ve never switched supplier then you could save a substantial amount by moving to a different firm.
For those on the hunt for a better deal there is heaps of choice – whether it is a long-term fix, variable rate or tariff from a smaller or green supplier you are looking for.
Over recent years the energy market has been flooded with new smaller suppliers promising better service and cheaper prices, meaning there is now more competition than ever for your custom.
When it comes to your energy supplier loyalty never pays, and if you are one of the millions of people who have NEVER switched (i.e. stuck with your original supplier), then you could also save a big chunk of cash.
