’Tis the sea­son to shop around

The Sunday Post (Dundee) - - Advice -

House­holds are be­ing re­minded to shop around for a bet­ter gas and elec­tric­ity deal as tem­per­a­tures fall.

GoCom­pare En­ergy says stan­dard vari­able rates are the most com­mon form of de­fault en­ergy tar­iff that peo­ple who do not switch will end up on – and they can be hun­dreds of pounds more ex­pen­sive than the best deals on the mar­ket.

Ben Wil­son, from GoCom­pare En­ergy, says: “En­ergy sup­pli­ers an­nounced their price in­creases in the spring and sum­mer, when the weather was warm­ing up and the big win­ter bills had been dealt with, so there’s a good chance that mil­lions of peo­ple would have done noth­ing about them.”
