Can you afford to throw away €257 every year? No? Then start assessing your home energy bills and get a better deal by switching supplier.

A survey by price comparison and switching service bonkers.ie has revealed we’re spending a whopping €290 million more than we need to on household energy bills.

However, just one in seven households has changed suppliers for a better deal in the last 12 months.

To avoid hefty bills this winter, source the best deals now before the cold weather kicks in. Most energy discounts only last for one year, so be wary of expiring deals.

And remember, you don’t always have to change supplier to save money. Sometimes switching tariffs can make all the difference. For more tips see bonkers.ie.
