The new annual check, energy renewal
Our busy daily lives mean it’s often hard to keep track of what I like to call “home admin”! By this I mean things like home insurance, interest rates on savings accounts and alike. To combat this perceived lack of engagement we get bombarded with calls to action from a variety of sources. Often this leads to some activity, be it moving your ISA savings to gain another 0.1% of interest – because that’s about the best you’ll get at the moment.
over 4.8 million energy switches took place last year with the average annual saving gained from switching was said to be around £200.
However, one area, which often gets over-looked, is energy. Switching energy supplier reached new heights in 2016, with around 4.8 million switches taking place. However, many millions of customers still haven’t ever switched and those that have often switch once then remain on a variable tariff when their initial contact term price has lapsed.
Annual Energy Savings
When you take into consideration the level of annual savings that can be achieved by switching energy supplier this need to undertake an annual check becomes even more important. The average annual saving in 2016 gained from switching was said to be around £200. This far exceeds savings you’ll likely see from moving insurance providers, yet every time our car insurance renewal arrives we’re seemingly programmed to check prices in the market.
