Low-cost upgrades 'can create cheap gas bills'

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.

People do not need to make a huge effort or spend a significant sum of money on their home in order to enjoy cheap gas bills almost instantly.

"I love the bathroom. I love my kitchen," the homeowner tells the newspaper, illustrating such improvements can be not only financially but also stylistic.
