I know I’m always telling you about ways to save on your gas and electricity but today I wanted to share with you this:
It’s my latest energy bill, showing that I’m £858.07 in credit! How fantastic is that?
We’ve tried really hard to reduce our energy usage around the house using all of the tips that I regularly share with you on here but as well as the energy we’ve saved by reducing our consumption, we’ve also saved by switching to a different provider.
I think a lot of people don’t realise how easy it is to switch providers. Everything stays exactly the same other than the company who send your bills and the price you pay. In fact, the last time I changed providers it took me about ten minutes online once I’d chosen my tariff and new supplier. It took me longer to choose which company I wanted to go with than it did to do the actual changeover.
You really would be surprised at the differences in price between companies and there are so many different tariffs out there to choose from that you’re probably best using an online comparison site to compare electricity prices and gas prices. That way you can just key in your details once and you are presented with the cheapest options for you and your home.
Don’t forget that it’ll usually be cheaper to take both gas and electricity with the same supplier, to pay by Direct Debit and to manage your account online.
I’ve been told that if you haven’t shopped around for a new deal since the main companies increased their prices last year, then the chances are that you’re paying too much so if that sounds like you then you should have a look around and see how much you can save….
