If you’re wondering how we make money when you change energy supplier, instead of charging our customers, we receive a commission from the new supplier each time someone agrees to switch suppliers with us. Your supplier won’t add our commission onto the gas and electric prices you pay, so you won’t pay any less by going directly to the supplier.

Compare energy suppliers online for the simplest and quickest to find the best energy prices to help lower your household budget.
Our energy comparison tool allows you to compare gas tariffs and compare electricity tariffs individually, or you can compare dual fuel deals to see if you can save even more money by getting your electricity and gas from the same supplier.
If you pay for your energy as you use it, you can run a gas and electric prepayment comparison to see if you can get a cheaper deal. This is well worth doing as prepayment meter rates are often the most expensive around.
It’s also worth considering an online energy tariff, which allows you to manage your account via an app or from your home computer. Online account management allows you to log in to your account at any time to see how much energy you’re using, input any meter readings and pay your bills.
You can compare between fixed rate and variable rate tariffs, to work out which deal will save you the most money – although a variable rate tariff could see your gas and electricity bills lowered if energy prices go down, we usually recommend tying into a fixed rate deal to lock prices in and avoid higher bills when suppliers put their prices up.
If you're a business owner, specialist price comparison sites for business gas and electric are the best way to compare rates and switch.
Business energy deals work differently to domestic ones, so you'll need to speak to commercial energy experts to make sure you get the best rates with a supplier that can meet the needs of your buiness.

Although bringing down the cost of your energy bills will be your number one priority, cheaper energy prices aren’t the only thing to consider.
When you compare gas and electricity suppliers and the different tariffs each offers, you should also look into things like customer service levels, opening hours, and how they handle billing enquiries. Online customer reviews are a good place to start to find out more about individual energy companies.
Although dual fuel energy tariffs are often more convenient, as you only get one bill for both your gas and electricity, it's often worth comparing gas and comparing electricity separately, to see if you can get them cheaper as single-fuel deals.
Don’t always assume one of the Big Six energy suppliers will necessarily offer the best deal or the best customer service – there are a wide range of smaller energy suppliers out there, some of which you might never even have heard of, but they might be the best fit for you. So try to keep an open mind when running a gas and electric suppliers comparison.
Every UK energy supplier is regulated by Ofgem, which means even the smallest energy suppliers must operate under the same rules as the largest. Even if your supplier goes bust, your supply won’t be cut off and Ofgem will assign a new supplier to take over your tariff.
If you’re not happy with your current energy provider for any reason, from high prices to poor customer service, it’s worth running an electricity and gas suppliers comparison and making the switch.
If you’re moving into a new property, it’s important to switch to a cheaper deal as you’ll automatically be placed on an expensive variable rate deal when you move in. Gas and electricity comparison sites for first time buyers and home movers are the quickest and simplest way to find a new deal, and it’s worth trying to switch about a week before you move in.
And if you want to compare energy prices without brokers, switching online with an impartial price comparison site like UKPower is the best way to go. We also offer a boiler price comparison service to see if you could save more money by replacing your old boiler with a newer, more energy effcient model.
Energy prices are constantly changing, and for all kinds of reasons, including supply and demand, availability, wholesale costs, transport costs, and infrastructure maintenance.
Even conflict or a natural disaster in an oil-rich country can impact production and accessibility, which can, in turn, influence the price you pay to boil a kettle, or fire up the central heating.
Wholesale cost changes are the main reason why gas and electricity prices fluctuate, and if you’re on a variable tariff, the price you pay for the energy you use will vary according to these wholesale costs, meaning your bills could go up or down.
But while variable rates can drop, they’re far more likely to rise, and that’s why it often makes sense to sign up to a fixed rate tariff, and lock in your rate for a set period of time, usually 12 months.
A fixed rate tariff not only offers a good way to beat the price hikes, but is also good for budgeting, as you know the rate you’ll be paying for the duration of the deal.
Energy comparison sites like UKPower are completely free to use, and you won't be charged a penny for switching with us - enter your postcode to see how much you could save.
There are a number of reasons your energy bill is higher than usual, but running a gas and electric comparison and switching supplier is a quick and easy way to bring costs back down.
