We talk about energy switches a lot on MoneyMagpie – and now’s an incredibly important time to slash your household expenses. We’re all working on tighter budgets this year, so switching supplier could save you hundreds of pounds.

We know it’s a total hassle to handle the paperwork, compare tariffs and all that boring stuff. But what if you could switch, hassle-free, without it costing you a penny?

Why bother with energy switches?

We all KNOW switching energy supplier could save us some cash. However, with so many different suppliers and ever-changing deals and tariffs, the legwork it takes feels like a waste of time. In fact, 49% of people paying their household energy bill have never switched at all, or only switched once.

But switching is worth the effort. Energy suppliers often leave us on expensive tariffs once the fixed-term deal you’re on is ended. You could be paying through the nose for energy without realising it. Indeed, there’s never been a better time to switch because prices are at an all time low!

You could save up to £461 a year if you switch with Energy Helpline, who are Ofgem accredited and have a high Trustpilot customer service rating. 

Switching also hands you back your power as a consumer to make choices about your environmental impact. Some energy suppliers use a mix of resources to provide power – while others offer a 100% sustainable and green guarantee. Looking at different suppliers gives you a better idea of where your money is going – and where your power comes from!
