Update 05/03 - E.ON is scrapping various discounts in April so now is a good time to switch!

From April 19 the £20 a year discount offered to dual fuel customers will be withdrawn.

E.ON is also getting rid of a perk which sees those who opt for paperless billing save £5 a year alongside increase in its standard charge for customers who pay bills by cash or cheque to £10 per fuel per year. (source Telegraph)

Switching energy deals is not as complicated as people think. In some cases, you can a few hundred quid a year by switching suppliers, and the process can take as little as half an hour.

Click this link cut your energy bills or hit the GET DEAL Button above

But which supplier and tariff should you switch to? This is the tricky part. The best buys change constantly as new deals come on to the market. The best tariffs can also vary depending on where you live and how much energy you use.




The prices displayed below are based on average usage but you’ll need to get a personal quote to find out how much each tariff will cost your household.

Deals below

Fixed dual fuel, payment by monthly direct debit

Fixed tariffs offer guaranteed standing charges and unit rates, usually until a set end date. Fixed deals tend to be for one or two years and some will have an exit fee if you leave before your contract end date. Dual fuel means getting both your gas and electricity from the same provider.

One Select: Secure 1 Year Fixed January 18. Fixed for one year. Average annual cost £820.
Utility Point: Just Up 18 Wk04 Direct. Fixed until 10/7/2019. Cancellation fee £36 per fuel. Average annual cost £838.

Variable dual fuel, payment by monthly direct debit

As the name suggests, variable prices can go up and down with the market.

Outfox The Market: Zapp! December Tariff (medium consumption). Average annual cost £807.
Utility Point: FlexiOnlineTracker 18Wk04 Direct. Cancellation fee £36 per fuel. Average annual cost £809.



🔥Gas only tariffs

Some people may be better off taking gas from one supplier and electricity from another.
You can compare gas only tariffs at Energyhelpline.com

Prepayment meters and paper bills

Prepayment tariffs are for people with prepayment meters and enable customers to pay in advance for energy by 'topping-up' their meter using prepay tokens, cards or a key. Although this can help people budget, prepayment is generally an expensive way to pay for energy.

Other people simply prefer to receive paper bills each quarter.

Dual fuel prepayment meter/paper bills, fixed

Iresa. IRESA Flex5 Prepayment. Fixed for 12 months. Average annual cost £969.
Nabuh Energy. Holly Tariff (12 month fixed). Fixed for 12 months. Average annual cost £976.

Dual fuel prepayment meter/paper bills, variable

E Energy. Reward April 2017. Average annual cost £977.

I was told I could not change to EDF from SSE (Swalec) because I had a dual tariff meter, EDF told me that.

Edit: EDF were the cheapest when I was shopping around.

'YOUR RECOMMENDED DEALS
Sorry, there are no results'

At best they can save me a tenner with a supplier they can't switch me to. No surprises there then. Haven't been any cheaper deals for me for several years.
Sorry but wont be using and voted cold.
All those energy comparison sites assume that when your fixed deal ends you will end up on standard variable for the rest of the period and therefore they fool you saying that you will save hundreds if you switch (unless you are on standard var in the first place which is unlikely). We know they raise prices every year so why would you think they offer you a better tarrif? I'm on npower and they have theirs calculator which also claims I'll save 60 if I switch to a new fixed deal, but my calculator tells me I'll be 25 worse off. Other providers would have saved me a tenner if switched so pointless.

It's all a con.

MSE cheap energy club lets you compare using today’s figures instead of rest of the year on standard tariff as you have mentioned. I prefer this comparison site because of that reason.

I concur 100%.
Over the last few years I've found that switching energy suppliers at this time of year is a bad move. Tariffs tend to be significantly cheaper between May and August; which is when their is a glut of cheap gas available to suppliers. As stated above I also use MSE Cheap Energy Club for comparisons.
What's next car insurance mega thread?
You are sposed to compare the price per unit and then move only if it is worth it, not look at their annual assumptions because that's where you go wrong.

I used the Martin Lewis Energy Club in 2016 and got a cracking deal for my parents and I for a years fixed. When it was due to end I did the comparison again and the quote they gave for my parents was actually more expensive even with cash back than what was available when I went on their current suppliers website for a quote. What I’m saying is no one should assume they are getting the best deal and you should search each provider individually. Yes it’s more time consuming but if you can save it’s worth it.
Save yourself all the hassle and bother and just switch all your home services to Utility Warehouse, to save the most money. One bill and loads of fantastic customer benefits, e.g. cashback on your shopping and free led light bulbs.
