It’s important to run an energy comparison and compare energy prices regularly because the cheapest dual fuel deals are normally 12-month fixed-rate contracts. If you don’t switch when your contract ends, you’ll be rolled on to a Standard Variable Tariff which will charge a more expensive rate. To make the most of cheap fixed-rate deals you need to switch every year.
With energy bills on the rise, it’s important to try to cut costs where possible. Whether you’re looking for a dual fuel tariff or separate gas and electricity tariffs, we’ll help you find the best deals available in your area.
We have partnered with The Energy Shop, who are accredited by the Ofgem Confidence Code which governs how energy comparison sites work. This means you’re getting a service you know you can trust, and the results are independent and impartial.
It only takes a few minutes to compare energy prices with Switch My Energy, and you could save yourself money on your gas and electricity bills today.
Here’s what you need to do to start comparing energy tariffs:
Our energy comparison service is designed to take the hassle out of lowering your bills. If you’re looking to compare gas and electricity prices from leading UK suppliers, you’ve come to the right place. Currently, two out of three people are being overcharged for their energy. Unless you switch energy regularly, you’re probably paying more than you need to. In fact, it’s estimated that at least 52% of people are paying more than they need to for gas and electricity. Most suppliers update their rates and deals frequently, so switching is a great way to reduce your bills.
Our energy comparison service has regularly updated information about deals on gas and electricity from suppliers right across the energy market. We decided to build a website that would let you get that information quickly and easily. We knew this could save money for potentially thousands of households across the country, so we gave the site a simple to complete form that allows you to find the best deals available in minutes.
Of course, while dual fuel is a popular way to keep your energy bundled together, you can compare gas and electricity prices individually. By comparing separately, you’ll find new tariffs available, potentially offering extra savings.
No-one wants to overspend on their bills. Our price comparison service makes it easy to find great deals on cheap gas and electric.
No. Regardless of what supplier you’re with, your supply will be the same as before. All that changes is the company that bills you and the price you pay for your energy. There won’t be any interruption to your supply during the energy switching, and nobody will need to visit your home unless you have opted to have a smart meter installed.
If you’re switching energy and using a reputable comparison service, there’s no need to contact your existing supplier – everything is handled for you.
If you were to switch through us, simply compare energy prices and choose the tariff you’d like to switch to, we’ll contact your current supplier and let them know you are leaving and moving to a new deal.
You might need up-to-date meter readings, but your new supplier should contact you to ask for these during your switchover.
After your initial switch, there is a 14-day cooling off period window in which you can easily cancel your switch.
In addition to this, because we have so many potential energy plans the ideal arrangement for your circumstances might be a deal that fixes your costs for a certain period, or it might be with a company that cuts down on the admin to cut its prices – or even a firm that has connections with greener energy sources.
There are hundreds of energy deals available – we’re certain one of them will be perfect for your needs. Let us find it for you.
We carry out a whole of market energy comparison, showing you all UK gas and electricity suppliers.
There are 61 active domestic energy suppliers in the UK (according to Ofgem, the UK Government’s Office of Gas and Electricity Markets), so which one should you choose?
Like most energy price comparison sites on the market, we’re paid a commission by the energy suppliers that we switch our users to, allowing us to offer our service to you for free. We always present our deals in price order and never favour one of our suppliers over another.
