Consumers have been urged to switch energy tariffs to fixed deals in order to pre-empt a possible price hike.
According to Mark Todd, co-founder of energyhelpline.com, there are signs that energy price are beginning to rise again, so consumers should take a gamble by fixing their gas and electricity prices to avoid paying over the odds down the line.
Mr Todd pointed out that the energy market seems to be bottoming out and there is a chance that next winter may see prices start to rise again.
"Now could be a great time to opt for a fixed internet tariff if customers want stability in their energy bills," he said. "Fixed rates are at their lowest level for two years."
Mr Todd noted that rising energy bills are the last thing householders want after the bitterly cold winter, so they need to weigh up all the available options open to them.
Ovo Energy recently announced an increase the cost of its New Energy Fixed online tariff by £72 a year.
