How do I find the best energy deals for me?
When it comes to getting a good energy deal, what really matters is who the best electricity or gas supplier for you is.
One factor to definitely consider, is who is the cheapest for your area.
To find out, you’ll need to run a personalised cheap gas and electric comparison using your postcode, current plan details and consumption info. You'll find the latter two items on your latest energy bill.
The first time you've done this using an energy comparison site, you may well be surprised about who the best energy supplier for you is. Gas and electric suppliers frequently change their available deals, so it's worth regularly comparing what's on offer.
What is the benefit of a fixed price deal?
A popular choice for households is to opt for a fixed price energy deal.
Fixed price energy deals are often cheaper than standard variable plans, which act as a supplier's default tariff.
A fixed rate deal will ensure you pay the same rates for the duration of the deal. The most common fixed term duration is 12 months, however recently there has been an increase in deals available that fix energy rates for 18 months and even 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.
