Energy comparison customers have plenty of options when it comes to making their home more energy efficient, Consumer Focus has posited.
Zoe McLeod, energy expert at the watchdog, noted: "It's important to cut carbon emissions but it's also vital that people's homes are warm enough as cold or damp conditions can put some people's health at risk, especially older people and children."
She pointed out that many householders who are struggling to pay their cheap energy bills are turning down their thermostats as much as possible in order to save money.
"To help save much-needed extra pounds we would urge consumers to make sure they take advantage of energy efficiency grants and shop around for the best energy deals," Ms McLeod said.
She also commented that energy saving lightbulbs "will save people money by cutting bills" but warned that the expected price rise for such devices "will be a bitter pill to swallow".
