Students are known for their low-budget lifestyles and in order to do this, being money-savvy is essential. One of the areas in which many students don't seem to consider saving money on is their energy bills. It is highly likely that your landlord has put you on any old tariff, which generally ends up being the most expensive. For just 5 - 10 minutes of your time, switching energy tariff can save you up to £400, and yes, it is really that simple. Everything you need to know is right here on this page.

How much do your energy bills cost?

The answer to this question relies on a number of variables, all leading to the likely amount you're going to spend on your bills. You're pretty much in control of how much you want to spend, given you're the ones using the gas and electricity. The main factors are: how big your house is; how many people live in it; and how savvy you are about turning things off etc. The average three bedroom student house is likely to use between 1,000 - 1,400 kWh of gas and 300 - 500 kWh of electricity per month. We understand this may not make much sense to you, so here it is in pounds and pence.

If you're on a standard deal with First Utility, for example, which is the type your landlord most likely has you on, will cost you around:

Monthly usage:
Gas - 1,312 kWh
Electricity - 465 kWh
