Heating, lighting and cooking bills are usually the biggest cost after rent and food bills. You can save a lot of money by keeping a check on the deal that you have, comparing offers and switching regularly – just as you would do if you were buying something in the shops.
Even if you prefer to use a prepayment meter it is still worth shopping around and if you have debt on your prepayment meter you can still change suppliers (if the debt is less than £500).
Switching suppliers is much easier than it used to be and there is help available – many people save over £200 by changing suppliers and if you are on a tariff called ‘standard variable’ for electricity and/or gas you are probably paying too much.
Even if you decide you don’t want to check out comparison sites always call your existing supplier at least once a year and make sure you are on the cheapest deal with them.
