Energy is at the heart of everything in the home and office. Without it, none of our ovens, heaters, televisions, computers, and internet would work. So, with it being such an important part of our daily lives, you’re probably pretty keen to find out which energy provider is right for you.
What are the different types of energy I can get?
Energy is a pretty vague term, so what does it cover in terms of practical services you can pay for? For the most part, energy includes both gas and electrically powered appliances.
Electrically based household utilities are not only replacing their gas counterparts in a lot of instances, but also creating their own new niches such as electric vehicle chargers. However, many people still have gas based appliances and renters will generally have to use what is there, so gas shouldn’t be completely discounted in your energy mix.
As the push towards decarbonisation continues, there has been an increase in the electrification of the household. Induction cooktops, heat pumps, and electric cars are all creating an increased demand for electricity.
Gas is still widely used for most appliances and is something to consider if your household utilises stoves and heaters.
