People looking to switch gas providers to ensure they can receive cheap energy deals may also like to consider making improvements to their home in order to cut their expenses.
Tony Pickup, founder of the Double Glazing & Conservatory Ombudsman Scheme (DGCOS), stated that, if a property's windows and doors do not effectively trap heat, a residential dwelling could be wasting £1 in every £5 they spend on energy as warmth escapes through these exits.
He explained that upgrading this area of a building "can actually help stop energy loss and save you money."
Recently a survey by DGCOS revealed 61 per cent of homes may undertake this renovation to save on their energy expenditure, though around half of people aged between 18 and 34 are more concerned with how their abode looks than how efficient it is.
Mr Pickup also noted fitting loft and cavity wall insulation could be a cost-effective way to cut gas bills, though he observed the results could vary from house to house, depending on what work has been done in the past.
