What is a 'dual fuel' tariff?
With one of these tariffs you’ll get both your gas and electricity from the same supplier. This makes life a lot easier. There’s one bill, one direct debit, one number to call if you need to speak to someone. A dual fuel tariff could save you money, but it’s not necessarily the cheapest option.
In some cases, it’s still cheaper to have your gas and electricity provided by separate suppliers.
Are British Gas the cheapest provider?
There is no single cheapest energy supplier out there, only the cheapest provider for you and your usage requirements. In order to find that out, you need to head to a supplier’s website, enter your details, and make the comparison across suppliers. This can be confusing, but you can always come back and consult finder.com’s pages and guides.
