I’ve heard I can save money with dual fuel, what’s the go with that?

Yes, it’s true, you can save money, but only if you have both gas and electricity in your home.

If you’ve only got one or the other, then this article is not for you; otherwise read on and see how much money you can save!

At the moment, you’re probably receiving two bills – one for your gas and one for your electricity. Or you could have what’s called dual fuel, where both energy types are provided by the same retailer. Regardless of how they are delivered, both bills will outline the charges for supply and usage. Supply is the fee for the connection to the grid for electricity or the mains for gas, whilst usage charges relates to how much energy you have used and can be variable based on the tariff you are on.

There are plenty of benefits to being on dual fuel.

  • You only get one bill. That’s one less bill to worry about. It will all arrive as a statement of your usage and the total amount to pay.
  • You might get a discount. By bundling your electricity and gas together, some retailers offer money off your bill. That’s in addition to the usual “pay on time” and direct debit discounts as well.
  • One point of contact. This is one of the biggest positives of having dual fuel. If you need to contact your energy supplier, whether gas or electricity, it will always be the same company.
  • Less hassle. Need some help with repairs, payments or complaints? Having one company to deal with is a convenient and time saving opportunity.

However, dual fuel may not be right for everyone.

  • Look at your current bill for both gas and electricity and check how much you are already paying.
  • Consider the size of your home and how many people occupy it, as this will have an impact on how much your overall charges are.
  • Compare other energy retailer’s rates. Can you get it cheaper? Or will it be more economical staying with your current provider.
  • Even if you can get a cheaper rate, will you still get a high level of customer service?

Wow, this sounds like a lot of work to figure this out. I’m not sure it’s worth the hassle of switching gas and electricity providers!
