There is not one single cheap energy supplier for everyone; it's about the cheapest energy comparison for you.
In fact, cheap utilities may not even be your top priority. Some households prefer being supplied with renewable energy, while others value great customer service.
In any case, finding a cheap supplier doesn't have to be complicated, in fact it only takes 17 minutes on average. To get started simply tell us:
- Your postcode
- Your energy usage.
Will a cheap gas supplier mean worse customer service?

What makes one supplier cheaper than the other?
The two main factors making one energy supplier cheaper than the others are:
- Energy suppliers where you live - different gas and electricity plans and energy suppliers are available in different areas, which is why we need your post code before you can compare energy suppliers. For example, the rates charged on your plan could be different, so running an energy comparison is the only way to get an accurate idea of the cheapest energy supplier.
- How much energy you use - the amount of energy you use will also determine which plans are suitable for you. Some plans have a fixed standing charge and a lower cost per unit of gas and electricity, which will work out well for heavy energy users, and poorly for those with lower energy consumption.
What else can I compare energy suppliers on?
As mentioned, "cheapest" doesn't mean "best" when it comes to switching your energy.
Some households will want to switch to an energy supplier that provides a certain percentage of its energy from a renewable source. Others will want to find a supplier that offers perks such as points or vouchers. Still others are curious how suppliers rate with current customers when it comes to satisfaction ratings.
Whatever your priorities are when it comes to finding a cheap or better energy supplier, our results table offers links to info you'll find helpful.
