People looking to get cheap electricity deals by performing an energy comparison may also like to make their home more efficient in order to keep their bills down.
It has been stated by new energy and climate change secretary Edward Davey that measures to cut waste will be at the heart of his strategy.
In his first speech since taking up the job, the minister announced the creation of a new team within the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) to lead the way on developing new efficiency policies that will be relevant to people's everyday lives.
He said the Energy Efficiency Deployment Office is to be a centre of expertise and will help householders understand what improving their homes can do for their expenses.
Mr Davey added: "I'm hugely enthusiastic about energy efficiency. It's the cheapest way of cutting carbon - and cutting bills for consumers. It has to be right at the heart of what we do."
This could be important, as the DECC revealed last week the UK emitted 495.8 million tonnes of carbon dioxide in 2010 - a rise of 3.8 per cent from the previous year.
