People planning to switch gas supplier to find a cheap energy deal may also find they can save money by undertaking some basic property renovations.
Director of the National Home Improvement Council Andrew Leech said one of the cheapest and most effective ways of cutting the cost of running a house is to fit good draught-proofing measures.
He noted this can help trap heat, as without this measure a typical semi-detached home could have the equivalent of nine bricks missing through gaps around windows and doors.
Mr Leech added it may be vital for individuals to keep their home in top condition if they want to make the most of the government's Green Deal scheme.
"I think the Green Deal will lay down certain regulations that the average householder has to fit in with. The principal thing is saving energy," he said.
Previously, Mr Leech stated the coalition's decision to cut rates for Feed-in Tariffs could undermine the environmentally friendly goals of the Green Deal initiative.
