Is a dual fuel energy tariff cheaper?
Switching to a tariff offering combined gas and electricity can often be a cheaper option than choosing separate providers. Some energy suppliers will offer discounts for taking both gas and electricity from them.
This can be done in different ways, including:
- Cashback for switching to them
- A percentage off your bill
- Cheaper energy rates
- A reduced standing charge (the cost of having a gas and electricity supply)
However, dual fuel tariffs will not always be the cheapest option available and it is important to compare all the offers available to you.
By switching with Love Energy Savings, you can easily compare a huge range of suppliers offering a range of tariffs to quickly find the best home energy deal for you.
Once you have picked from the dual fuel tariffs available in your area, there are more benefits. Switching with Love Energy Savings means we can let you know when your deal is ending to keep you on the best available tariff.
What are the benefits of combined gas and electricity?
Outside of the cost, there are a number of reasons why people choose combined gas and electricity tariffs when switching.
By choosing a dual fuel energy tariff, you can halve the hassle of paperwork and passwords by switching from two separate energy providers to one.
As you’ll be dealing with one energy company, you’ll only have one bill, one online account and one place to send your meter readings.
You’ll also only have one point of contact so if any there are any problems with your energy supply, you’ll only have one company to deal with.
To make things even easier, if you use a smart meter to monitor your usage, you’ll only need one meter for both gas and electricity when you choose a dual fuel tariff.
Is it easy to switch to a dual fuel energy tariff?
Switching to a combined gas and electricity tariff is just as easy as switching to any other tariff.
To start your switch, all you need to know is your address, your supplier, the tariff you are on and your usage. Even if you don’t know your exact usage, the Love Energy Savings comparison tool can estimate this for you.

How do I know if I am on a dual fuel tariff?
If you have recently moved into a new property, you may not know which tariff you have.
The easiest way to find out is to check a recent energy bill. If you don’t have access you can contact your energy supplier to enquire. You can also ask your landlord or previous tenant.
If you have separate bills from different suppliers you are likely on a dual fuel tariff.

Can anyone sign up for a dual fuel contract?
Any homeowner who uses both mains gas and mains electricity can switch to a dual fuel contract.
If you only use electricity or use electricity along with oil, solid fuel or bottled gas, you won’t be able to sign up to a dual fuel deal.
Will I get the same gas and electricity with dual fuel as I would with a single fuel contract?
Yes, you will get the same gas and electricity delivered to your home. The only difference will be in the way you are billed for your gas and electricity.
Can I get a green dual fuel tariff?
Yes, you can switch to a dual fuel green energy tariff.
When choosing a green energy tariff, your supplier will usually match the electricity you use with green energy which is fed into the National Grid. Renewable gas is usually achieved through a mixture of matching the gas you use with green and carbon offsetting.
Can I switch to a business dual fuel deal?
Just like with home energy, you can choose to switch both your gas and electricity to the same business energy supplier.
At Love Energy Savings, we can help you compare the best business energy tariffs and discover whether it’s cheaper to get your business electricity and gas from one supplier.
