How to save big on your energy bills

Tina Leonard

 

 
Fancy saving €200 a year on your home energy bills, but don't know which provider to choose?
 
Price comparison site www.bonkers.ie has just launched a dual fuel and gas comparison tool which can help you find out.
 
Price comparison can be confusing, as there are several combined gas and electricity deals, called dual fuel tariffs to choose from. These deals can offer substantial savings but beware annual contracts, break penalties and standing charges that may not be standard.
 
Also bear in mind that the ESB will be rebranding as Electric Ireland in the coming months and is expected to launch new dual fuel tariffs, so you'll have even more homework to do.
 
on bonkers.ie you input data on your average bill, tariff type and provider and the tool provides you with details on other offers available and indicates savings you could make.
 
Managing director David Kerr promises that the service enables customers to "find the cheapest gas and electricity deals and save 12% or more per year on their home energy bills in minutes".
