Sticking with the same energy supplier year in, year out or buying your gas and electricity from different providers could mean you’re paying over the odds. But switching supplier and moving to a dual fuel deal could put a stop to all that – here’s how.

Cheap dual fuel comparisons

What is a dual fuel energy deal?

A dual fuel deal is when you buy both your gas and electricity from the same supplier, most providers will offer contracts as variable or fixed rate tariffs. If you opt for an online contract and manage everything over the internet, then you might save even more money.

Will you benefit from a dual fuel deal?

Some energy suppliers offer discounts if you choose to buy both gas and electricity from them so you could save money on your bills. But that doesn’t mean you always pay less, so before you agree to anything, double check how much it would be to buy your energy separately.

One of the big benefits of dual fuel contracts is that they’re convenient because you only have one supplier to deal with if anything goes wrong. Some providers will also combine your gas and electricity bill – saving a few trees and cutting down on your paperwork.

The best way to find cheap gas and cheap electricity is to compare what’s on offer – which you can do right here. Just fill in your details using the information from your most recent bills and we’ll do the rest. If you don’t have a bill to hand then you can still compare but you might find that the results aren’t as accurate.

If you do decide to switch to a dual fuel deal – then you don’t have to stick with either of your current suppliers. And if you’ve never switched energy provider, you might be surprised at how much you could save.

It’s best to switch when your existing contract comes to an end – although technically you can switch supplier at any point. But bear in mind that changing providers before your deal has officially ended can mean forking out for hefty exit fees so always make sure your new deal is worth the move.

Switching supplier has never been easier. We take the hassle out of searching by running a dual fuel comparison for you – all you need to do is pick the deal you like the look of. If you choose to switch then your new supplier will contact your old one and sort out all the details for you, so you can just sit back and relax.

How long does an energy switch take?

Switching supplier shouldn’t take any more than 21 days, although the average is just 17 – this also includes a 14-day ‘cooling off’ period.

Your cooling off period will be set out in your new contract and if you do change your mind then you should let your supplier know as soon as possible. Cancelling within this time means you can leave without paying an exit fee.

If you’re worried that switching might disrupt your energy supply – then you can put your mind at rest – there’s no need for any new equipment and you won’t need any new pipes.

If you’re still in doubt, changing supplier could save you around £482* – proving that switching really does mean saving – so start comparing.
