According to research, only one in ten households is on the cheapest tariff

With the typical household’s energy bill having more than doubled since 2004, consumers have been looking for ways to save both energy and money. “Whilst changing supplier was initially popular, consumers have become skeptical to moving across suppliers as time has proven that once the initial offer has expired, many consumers find themselves paying the same – if not more than before,” says SuperSwitcher

Managing Director, Fred Rojahn. “Tariffs change all the time, so the key is to regularly check for better offers. This may mean staying with your existing supplier, but moving to a cheaper tariff. The problem is that many consumers believe that this just takes too much effort. As a result, our data shows that only one in ten UK households is getting the best deal.

But with a huge £378 per year in savings currently on offer for many families, we knew there had to be a better way. Now SuperSwitcher has come to the rescue of the UK public with a painless, one click remedy, which enables users to easily check and change tariffs on a regular basis.” is a free online account management tool that helps consumers save hundreds of pounds each year by making it easier than ever before to compare and switch electricity and gas suppliers. Just putting in basic information once, means you can save money all year round.

“Energy suppliers regularly offer new, cheap tariffs to attract new customers, but they soon invent a new offer and raise prices on the old one, which means existing customers are now paying over the odds,” says Rojahn. “By using SuperSwitcher’s account management tool, users can check their tariff online, regularly and easily.”

General tips to save money on your energy bills are:
• Get both electricity and gas from the same supplier, with a ‘dual fuel’ tariff; suppliers typically offer discounts on these products.
• Move to an online, paperless tariff, as these are normally the most keenly priced.
• Pay by direct debit; this is typically the cheapest way to pay your bills.

The only way to keep getting the best price is to regularly compare and switch tariffs, however. “SuperSwitcher’s free account management tool offers the easiest way of doing this, with its reminder function and unique QuickCompare feature, that helps customers compare tariffs with a single ‘click’,” Rojahn adds.

To ensure its information is accurate and up-to-the-minute, SuperSwitcher partners with, the UK's leading energy tariff comparison service, which is accredited by Consumer Focus / Energywatch.
