An energy crisis is the last thing anyone needs right now. The reality is that there aren't many deals available for households at the moment, so switching isn't much of an option.

That's why we're advising you to do something we've never said before: stay put.

For most households, the best thing to do right now is stay with your current supplier. (Although if you're a business owner, you can probably still switch your business energy deal.)

Uswitch's contact centre is open and able to provide more personalised advice. We're open seven days a week and you can call us on:

What should you know now?

While you might not be able to switch, it's important to know how else you might be able to save money on your energy, as well getting context about the current energy situation. We've picked out the four guides we think are most beneficial in helping you do that.
