As winter begins to draw its icy claws around the country, one of the best ways to save money is by examining your fuel bills closely. Whether you have gas, electricity, or a mix of both, there is always room to save money on your bills.
But first, you actually have to do something constructive about it, rather than putting it off until next week, next month or even next year. You might think it’s a complicated procedure to switch energy suppliers, but it’s a lot easier than it used to be and you could make some significant savings.
Of course, it helps if winter is not really that cold for a long period, because it means you can switch your heating down or turn it on for less time than you usually would. If you’re considering switching, then the first thing to do is to go to a money saving website and look at what they can do for you. One organisation will do a comparison to look for the cheapest deal available. All you have to do to start with is to supply details of the current tariff you are on and the organisation will check round all suppliers to see if you are overpaying.
If you are, then it will help you to switch. If not, then they will monitor your tariff monthly to keep checking that you are still on the cheapest tariff for your needs. You’ll get an alert when it’s time to switch to a cheaper tariff, should you want to. All you need to do is give the new company a final meter reading and they will take care of billing and customer service, and of course, the price.
For most people it’s a simple process, so it’s worth thinking about it as the weather turns chillier.
