How to compare energy prices online

Comparing energy prices is simple with Make It Cheaper, and you can switch to a better deal on gas and electricity in the time it takes to make a cuppa.


Here’s how to compare energy deals and switch gas and electricity supplier in three simple steps:


1. Enter your postcode and some details about your current supplier into our price comparison tool. 2. Compare energy deals from a wide range of providers, including the Big Six and the smaller suppliers. 3. Choose the deal that’s best for you, and let us take care of the rest.

It really is that simple – we’ll let both your old and new suppliers know that you’re moving, and within three weeks you’ll be switched to a cheaper rate on gas and electricity.

Why are your energy bills so high?

There are a number of reasons your energy bill is higher than usual, and switching supplier is just one of a number of ways to bring them back in line.


You could be paying more for your gas and electricity because:


You’re using more energy – It sounds obvious, but the more gas and electricity you use, the higher your bills will be.


Even if you’re on a fixed rate tariff, it’s only the unit cost that is fixed, so the more energy you use, the more you’ll be charged. It’s almost inevitable your energy bills will increase during the winter, when more gas and electricity is need to light and heat your home, but it’s worth considering making a few small changes to how and when you use energy, to help cut your bills. Check out our energy saving advice guide for some ideas.


Your bills are based on estimated readings – If you don’t regularly provide your energy supplier with meter readings, it’s likely your bill will be based upon estimates, meaning there’s a good chance you could be overpaying each month.


Get in touch with your supplier to find out if you’re on estimated billing.


Your fixed rate energy deal has ended – If you signed up to a fixed-rate energy deal, but never switched once this contract expired, your supplier will have automatically put you onto a standard variable tariff, which means you’ll be paying one of its most expensive rates. If this is the case, it’s time to switch supplier and bag yourself a better deal.

Why compare energy suppliers and tariffs?

When comparing energy companies and the different tariffs on offer, you should look into cheaper prices of course, but also 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.


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.


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 supplier for any reason, from high prices to poor customer service, it’s worth making the switch.

*Between 1 Jan 2018 and 30 Jun 2018, at least 10% of people who switched energy supplier for both gas & electricity with uSwitch saved £482 or more.
