How do I know which energy deal is right for me?

When it comes to getting a great new energy deal, it's key to remember a few things:

  • Prices and deals availability vary by region, so the best or cheapest deal for you may not necessarily be the right deal for a friend.
  • Price isn't everything! You can also switch energy suppliers to get a greener energy plan, get better customer service or get perks and extras such a free smart thermostat.
  • Whether you go for a fixed rate deal or not depends on your current situation. Read more on that below.
  • Not so sure about small suppliers? You're not alone; but there are some great ones out there. Read up on switching to small suppliers.

What is the benefit of a fixed price deal?

A popular choice for many households is to opt for a fixed price energy deal.

Fixed price energy deals are often cheaper than your standard variable plans, and offer protection against energy price rises.

A fixed rate deal will ensure you pay the same rates for your energy for the duration of the deal (though how much you ultimately pay will be dictated by the amount of energy you use). The most common fixed term duration is 12 months, though recently there has been an increase in deals available that fix energy rates for a year or more.

Some of these fixed gas and electric plans come with exit fees so, in the event of you wanting to leave a fixed rate deal, you may incur a charge. These exit fees will be highlighted alongside relevant fixed deals.

How do I find a cheap gas and electricity supplier?

When you compare gas and electric suppliers, the cheapest provider for you will depend on several different factors, such as where you live and how much electricity and gas you use.

When you compare gas and electric prices with uSwitch, we give you a personalised quote, based on your address and energy usage. This enables you to choose the right plan for your needs.

Usage has an impact because (for example) plans that have a higher standing charge, with a subsequent lower cost per unit for electricity and gas, might work out cheaply for someone who uses a lot of electricity, but very expensive for someone who uses very little.

If you're a low energy user, therefore, the standard best deals or the cheapest energy supplier on average may not be right for you. Our comparison tool will take all of the above into account and help you select the best value energy suppliers for you, to ensure you have access to cheap gas and electricity information.

So which energy suppliers offer cheap gas and cheap electricity in your area? The first step to finding the cheapest electricity and gas prices is to run a comparison of the energy market.

Your energy will be delivered through the same pipes and cables as your current supply and your new and present gas and electric suppliers will arrange the transfer.

How do I find the best gas and electricity prices?

The first step is to run a gas and electricity price comparison with a site that adheres to Ofgem's Confidence Code. This ensures your comparison will be reliable, simple to use and easy to understand.
