However, British Gas have a tariff worth under £1,000 for the same use if found through a comparison website.
Martin explained: “Now if you’re with British gas that [£1,179] is what you’d pay but, British Gas has a tariff that’s under £1,000 for the same use if you go through price comparison sites to get it.”
Currently, British Gas is offering a tariff as low as £900 a year and it’s not the only provider.
So are Scottish Power, E.ON and EDF.
“So same energy company, same gas, same electricity, same safety, same billings, same customer service – one costs £1,179 if you’re on its price cap standard tariff, which most customers are, and its cheapest deal is under £1,000 for exactly the same stuff,” Martin told viewers.
Speaking to Kirsty and her family who have recently moved into a new home, Martin advised the mum-of-three on whether is would be best to stick or ditch the current inherited energy supplier.
