Big freeze may illustrate need for switch of energy supplier

Between 1 July 2019 and 31 December 2019, at least 10% of people who switched energy supplier for both gas & electricity with Uswitch saved £479 or more.

With temperatures still at significant lows across the UK, homeowners may be realising the importance of a switch of energy supplier.

Thermometers in parts of Scotland reached -20.1 degrees C overnight (December 21st-22nd) and warnings of more snow remain in place, reports the BBC.

Although some of the country's transport network is said to be returning to normal, people at home are likely to require plenty of energy to fuel their heating systems.

The Midlands and eastern England are thought to be in the firing line, with the Met Office issuing severe weather alerts for these areas.

One way to overcome the problem could be to make a switch of energy supplier, perhaps ensuring that when it does get cold heating bills will be charged at a lower rate.

In late November, some parts of Britain, such as the Scottish Highlands, experienced their coldest night on record for the month.
