What is dual fuel?

If you use both gas and electricity in your home, you can choose to combine these into one energy bill by opting for a dual fuel tariff - dual fuel simply means that you receive your gas and electricity from the same energy supplier, rather than, as is commonly the case, from two separate suppliers. If you receive an electricity bill from one energy supplier and a gas bill from a different one, then you are not on a dual fuel tariff.

Dual fuel tariffs are very popular, and it’s easy to see why. By getting all your energy from the same supplier you make things easier, and possibly cheaper, for yourself.

You can use table filters to only show dual fuel plans when you run an energy comparison with Uswitch. Enter your postcode above to get started.

What are the benefits of a dual fuel tariff?

There are a number of benefits and discounts you should know about when you run a dual fuel comparison.

  • The best dual fuel deals can mean cheaper energy prices. Some energy suppliers will offer you a dual fuel discount if you sign up to a dual fuel tariff with them. You’ll usually get this as a monthly or annual discount straight off your energy bills

  • It’s more convenient for you. You will only receive bills from one company, and some suppliers even offer a combined bill for simplicity

  • There’s only one point of contact. If you have any complaints, queries or need help from your energy supplier, you only have one company to deal with.

Is it easy to switch to a dual fuel energy tariff?

Yes. The first thing to do is run a dual fuel comparison of energy suppliers in your area, to see how much you could be saving by switching to a dual fuel tariff.

You don’t have to switch to one of your current suppliers if you don’t want to, you can switch either one or both of your fuels away if need be to find the best dual fuel deals.

Running a dual fuel comparison is no different to a normal energy comparison. Get started by entering your postcode at the top of this page and we’ll show you the best dual fuel deals that you can switch to through Uswitch.

Once you’ve run a dual fuel comparison and found the right dual fuel deal for you, simply apply to switch to the new supplier and the rest of the process will be taken care of for you.

There’s no complicated paperwork and the process is very simple - you won’t even notice the switch has been made until cheaper bills start arriving.

How can I find the best dual fuel deal?

The best dual fuel deal is different for everyone - it depends on the factors that matter the most to you. Price is generally the top priority for most customers, but elements like customer service and green credentials are increasingly coming to the fore. The best thing to do is run a comparison to see what's available and assessing which deals best meet your needs.

How do I switch to a more environmentally friendly dual fuel deal?

Uswitch's Green Accreditation scheme makes it easy to see just how green a dual fuel energy deal is. Each one is given a Bronze, Silver or Gold rating depending on various criteria and should help you make a choice that's right for you and right for the planet.

Who is the cheapest dual fuel supplier?

Energy rates can vary by region and your usage will affect your bill so, like the idea of the best deal, the cheapest dual fuel supplier for someone else isn’t necessarily the cheapest for you.

The best way to find the cheapest dual fuel deal for you is to run a comparison. We’ll use your postcode to find the dual fuel deals available in your area so we can show you the dual fuel tariffs that can offer the best value for your needs.

What's an average annual dual fuel bill?

The average annual dual fuel bill between 1 January and 31 March 2024 is £1,928. This is dictated by the energy price cap, but it's important to remember that there is no "average" energy bill because everyone's usage is different. If you use more than £1,928 worth of energy in a year, you'll pay more. If you use less, you'll pay less.

How else can I ensure cheaper energy bills?

While switching to a dual fuel tariff can be a good move for those using separate suppliers it’s by no means the only way to save money on your energy bills.

One of the best ways to get cheaper gas and electricity is to regularly compare deals and switch suppliers. If you haven’t switched in a while it’s likely you’ll be on a standard variable tariff, which is typically the most expensive type of plan and can be subject to price rises. If you’re on a fixed plan but it’s due to come to an end soon, make sure you start shopping around for a better energy deal before your prices rise.

Aside from switching energy online with a price comparison site like Uswitch, you could cut your bills further by opting for an online energy tariff with your new supplier. Online account management is cheaper for energy companies to run as they don’t have to send out regular statements or maintain as many call centres.
