SWITCHING energy provider can be tricky and time-consuming.

And comparing tariffs, choosing between plans and hunting for the best deal are tasks in their own right.

To keep on top of price rises, you may look to regularly switch plan or provider.

However, many don't do it at all.

Earlier this year, Ofgem revealed that more than a third of UK households - nine MILLION - didn’t change gas or electricity providers between 2012 and 2017.

It also found 33 per cent of people can't see the point of switching because all suppliers seem the same.

Meanwhile MoneySuperMarket suggested that households are overspending by up to £300 a year by not switching.

Automatic energy-switching service Switchcraft wants to curb such issues, prioritising a quick route to lowering bills.

The company says that by signing up once users will never having to worry about energy again.

And you could save up to £518 a year by doing so.

That's because once signed up, the service will continually find its users the best plan.

If there's a better deal for you, Switchcraft will automatically switch you; with the promise of easy cancellation if you're unhappy.

That should mean both time and money saved, and seems a smart solution to the current obstacles many see when looking to switch.

It should also mean users don't have to worry about providers being the same, as Switchcraft focuses purely on cost.

The service also has a healthy range of suppliers and plans to automatically sort through.
While the likes of EDF, British Gas and Scottish Power (the Big 6) are all available, so are many smaller providers.

Switchcraft also searches the plans of providers making use of renewable energy.

Perhaps most importantly though, Switchcraft's sign-up process is quick and free.

So anyone looking to switch and lower their bills won't have to spend much time (or any money) in order to save.
