COVID-19 Update - Despite the current coronavirus restrictions you can still switch your energy supplier.

How to compare dual fuel tariffs

Compare dual fuel tariffs and change to a better energy deal today. Here’s how to find the cheapest deals in Ireland and make switching tariff quick and easy.

Why choose a dual fuel tariff?

A dual fuel tariff means that you get both your electricity and gas from the same energy supplier.

These plans can be cheaper and more convenient because it’s one supplier and one bill. Also, if something goes wrong you only need to contact one energy supplier.

These are currently the cheapest dual fuel offers on the market, based on the national average consumption of gas and electricity. According to the Commission for Regulation of Utilities (CRU), the average Irish household uses 11,000 kW/h of gas and 4,200 kW/h of electricity per year.

The summary can indicate the cheapest dual fuel deal, but to get a more accurate comparison of prices, you need to use our gas and electricity comparison tool based on your own energy usage.

Is it cheaper to get a dual fuel plan?

At the moment, if you have both gas and electricity, you could save up to €476 by switching.

However, dual fuel tariffs are not always the cheapest plans. Sometimes the discounts on single tariff gas and electricity offers are significant, so it may work out cheaper than a dual fuel tariff.

It’s worth comparing both dual fuel and standalone gas and electricity deals to see which works best for you.
