Well, not only is dual fuel a hell of a lot more simple, since you can streamline all of your gas and electricity supplier with just one plan, it also works out cheaper most of the time. This is because many suppliers offer discounts for their dual fuel customers, as they want to encourage customers to receive both their gas and electricity supply from them. Despite these pretty clear advantages of dual fuel, in Retford, 6.72% homes only have electric central heating systems, compared to 90.73% who have just a gas system, while 0.77% just choose oil.
