Will switching to a Dual Fuel Energy Plan save me money?

Monday to Friday - 8.30 am to 5.30 pm

In this article we present you with the dynamic duo…. gas and electricity. If your home uses both gas and electricity, Dual Fuel Tariffs could save you money. But that doesn’t necessarily mean that you’ll automatically get a better deal by comparing your energy plan and switching to a Dual Fuel Tariff. When you’re looking for a new tariff, whether it’s from your energy provider or a new one, you want to ensure that you get the best value for money in line with your use and needs.
Last update: September 2021

Here we’ll take a closer look at Dual Fuel Tariffs, compare different tariffs from a range of suppliers, and answer some of the most frequently asked questions about these kinds of tariffs.

So you can make an informed decision for your household.

What is a Dual Fuel Tariff?

A Dual Fuel Tariff is when your gas and electricity are both supplied by the same energy provider. Many people use different suppliers for different utilities, and (quite understandably) suppliers are keen to provide both fuels to their customers. In order to attract as many dual fuel customers as possible providers often offer more attractive benefits and favorable rates.

In terms of service and user experience, you won’t notice any discernible difference whether you’re on a Dual Fuel Tariff or if you are getting your gas and electricity from two seperate suppliers. As a matter of fact, all suppliers distribute the same energy through the same network of wires and pipes through a system called the national grid. The only thing you’ll notice is the difference in price.

This is why it’s so important to find the right supplier and the right tariff for your needs, because the best option may not be an obvious one! At Switch Plan, comparing tariff plans and finding the best suppliers for your needs is our speciality. Our experts are ready to scan the UK energy market for you to make your life easier and save you money. All you have to do is give us a call at the number listed on the top of the page and our 100% free service will take care of everything for you!

Benefits of Dual Fuel Tariffs

Switching to a Dual Fuel Tariff is can be advantageous in a number of ways. The energy market is highly competitive, and suppliers would prefer to provide 100% of their customers’ energy rather than only 50%. As such, a Dual Fuel Tariff plan may be beneficial in the following ways:

  • You’re likely to save money through bonus dual fuel discounts
  • Suppliers will try to attract you with special promotional rates, saving you money
  • You only receive one bill, so it’s more convenient to manage your energy costs
  • They’re highly versatile. Most fixed, variable and online tariffs have a dual fuel variant that could save you money

Who is the best Dual Fuel energy supplier?

Virtually all energy suppliers have at least one Dual Fuel Tariff. But finding the best Dual Energy Supplier depends on a number of factors. It depends on where you are in the country, how much gas and electricity you use, what time of the day you are using energy and even the method you use to heat your home.

Keep in mind that the cheapest supplier isn’t always necessarily the best supplier for you. The quality of customer service you receive from your supplier is also an important factor.
