What to consider when comparing gas deals?
Price and savings will always rank highly when it comes to considering a new gas deal. But there are a few other things to consider….
Firstly, how you pay impacts on how much you pay! Payment options include Direct Debit, Pay as You Go, cash/card or cheque. And it’s worth remembering the best deals are usually available to Direct Debit customers.
How you are billed is also important. As with Direct Debit the best deals are usually available with tariffs that have online or e-billing rather than postal bills.
And a few other things to think about…
- What type of plan suits your needs best? a discount tariff, fixed price or Pay as You Go.
- Is there a contract term with any offer, usually 1 or 2 years? Is there an early exit fee?
- Do you want a gas tariff where the supplier offsets the CO2 footprint of your gas consumption?
- Does the supplier offer any additional services e.g. Online account or smart technology?
- Are there any other perks, cashbacks or promotions with the offer?

Every home is different but if you have never switched or it’s been a while you will save money on your gas bills.
In Ireland there are more energy suppliers to choose from than even before. And with more suppliers there is more competition and choice. To attract new customers many suppliers offer discounted deals to encourage you to make the switch. Many discounts last for 12 months so it’s important to make switching a habit in order to keep saving money.
The actual saving you will make on your gas bill will depend on how much energy you actually use in your home. To get the most accurate comparison we advise you to use the amount of energy you use (kWh) which will be printed on your bill.
However, at the moment, customers on a typical standard rate, consuming the national average amount of gas (11,000kWh) during the year could save €173 in their first year by switching:
