The findings come from Red C, who found that 30% of gas customers and 31% of electricity customers feel they don’t have the best deal for their energy.

Daragh Cassidy from bonkers.ie, a price comparison and consumer website said getting the best deal is key for consumers - especially heading into the winter months.

“With energy prices on the increase again, and as we head into the winter months when energy bills typically sky-rocket, it’s more important than ever that customers are on the best deal for their gas and electricity and are getting the very best value for their money," he said.

"At the moment you could save around €300 a year on your gas and electricity costs just by switching supplier."
