How To Choose An Energy Supplier

How To Choose An Energy Supplier

Your energy bills will vary according to a variety of factors. A higher unit rate will mean higher energy bills, depending on how much energy you use.

It also depends on where you live in the UK.

Notably, energy rates are always changing. As gas is a fossil fuel, it’s worth bearing in mind that supplies will run low eventually and this will affect the energy price.

With this in mind, a number of UK energy suppliers are starting to provide renewable electricity from sources such as wind farms. Energy rates could change significantly in the future.

  • Cheapest

If you want the cheapest option, this is usually a ‘fixed’ or ‘capped’ offer. You will sign a contract for a fixed amount of time.

It means the cost of your energy won’t go up or down for that set period, so your bills only change if you use more or less energy.

You may have to pay a fee if you want to switch suppliers before the time is up.

  • Moving soon

If you’re planning on moving, you can get a ‘standard’ or ‘variable’ tariff. This is ideal if you don’t want to be tied to a contract for period of time.

Also, you can switch to a different tariff or supplier at any point without being charged a fee for leaving. However, it usually means this deal is more expensive than a fixed option.

  • Economy 7 and Economy 10

There is a ‘multi rate’ or ‘economy’ tariff. Basically, this means you pay less for energy you use overnight and more during the day.

Realistically, you only benefit from an economy tariff if you deliberately use a lot of energy at night. Maybe you work nights, or charge up electric storage heaters during the night.

However, for most people, an economy tariff for electricity won’t save you money.

Saving Money And Saving The Planet

Ultimately, electricity when generated by renewable energy sources is a cleaner fuel solution than gas. By using a gas central heating system, you are burning a fossil fuel to heat your home.

Fossil fuels generate carbon dioxide, a harmful emission, when burning. The carbon dioxide then sits in the atmosphere, holding on to heat which causes the earth’s temperature to rise.

Notably, in the UK, the government has banned the installation of gas appliances in all new build properties from 2025. The UK is also legally bound to have net zero carbon emission by 2050.

Therefore, it’s only a matter of time before more restrictions are put in place to reduce our use of fossil fuels.

Hence you can get ahead by future proofing your home with electric heating now. Not only can you save money with energy efficient electric radiators, you can also play a part in reducing emissions and saving the planet.
