Homeowners living in rural areas may be able to switch energy tariffs to save some money.
They could also turn to home improvements to reduce their bills.
Hayley Jones, web marketing director for UK Energy Saving, said: "Insulating a property is key to improving energy efficiency and could offer significant savings on bills.
"Many rural properties may, however, have solid walls which are more costly to insulate than those with a cavity. There are currently no national grant schemes for solid wall insulation, which can be internal or external, but it is worth checking with local authorities for localised schemes," she added.
Installing double glazing, secondary glazing and draught excluders are all good ways to make a property more energy efficient, while turning down the heating by just one degree could have a notable impact on bills.
Consumers requiring cheap energy should also look at an energy comparison site to see whether they would be better off on a different tariff.
