4 Great Reasons To Switch Energy Suppliers Today

What if we told you, we have a great way to save yourself a lot of money each month? It's a whole lot easier than you thought and could potentially benefit the environment too. You'd want to know how, right?

Well luckily for you, we're about to share with you our secret...

That secret is switching your energy supplier! When you switch suppliers, you could reduce the cost of your energy bills - a big monthly expense for most of us.

Carry on reading to find out our top 4 reasons why you should consider switching today. Feel free to share any more that you may have to the comments below.

1. You could save a lot more than think

We know you hear all the time that switching energy suppliers could save you money. You might be thinking well a couple of pounds here and there isn't really worth the time. But it could be a lot more than that.

Switching to a new energy tariff is a quick and easy step to slash at least £273* off your bills with comparison website MoneySuperMarket. £273 is a lot of money!

Around 15m UK households are on standard variable or default tariffs**, and if you’re one of them, it’s likely you’re paying too much for your gas and electricity bills.

The perfect way to check if you could get a cheaper energy tariff is to use energy comparison website MoneySuperMarket. Simply tell them some key details about where you live, and your energy habits allows us to find the cheapest deals for you.

Whether you want to find a deal from a supplier that you recognise or are looking for green energy from an environmentally friendly supplier – you can filter your results to suit you.

You might also be looking for good customer service, so you can include star ratings to show how happy customers have been with each supplier.

2. Switching is actually really easy

Let's be honest, switching energy suppliers sounds like such a hassle. How do you switch and what do you do with your existing supplier? Well, energy switching is no longer complicated. It's actually super easy.

Getting a quote only takes a few minutes - just pop in your postage and a little information about your energy usage. 

MoneySuperMarket will then scour the market to find you the best deals and show you how much you could save by switching.

Once you've decided which supplier you'd like to switch to, simply select it and relax. Most energy companies in the UK are signed up to the Energy Switch Guarantee, which guarantees that the supplier you’re switching to will handle the process, and that it will be done within 21 days.

There’s also a 14 day ‘cooling off’ period, during which you can cancel the switch free of charge.

Plus, you don't need to tell your current supplier either. Your new supplier will handle the switching process and will contact you to let you know what date you'll be transferred over. You'll also need to provide a meter reading which they'll give to your old supplier so they cansend you a final bill.

However, it's always worth checking if you are still in contract in case you need to pay any exit fees.

Another fabulous feature of MoneySuperMarket is their Energy Monitor. This means that once you've switched once, you won't need to enter your details and go through the process again. They'll keep an eye on prices and let you know when it's time to switch again - which of course, they'll handle for you.

3. You could switch to a greener energy supplier

Green (renewable) energy is electricity, which is generated by natural, renewable sources such as the wind, the sun or the power of the tides – as opposed to using fossil fuels like coal or oil.

Is green energy more expensive? Not necessarily.

Because more people want green energy and because the technology is always improving, green energy is cheaper than ever – so it doesn’t cost the earth.

MoneySuperMarket allows you to filter your search so you can find renewable energy suppliers. Green energy suppliers include the likes of Green Star Energy, Ecotricity, Green Energy, Bulb and Octopus.
