Homeowners could consider shopping around and looking to compare energy rates as fixed-rate deals are starting to come to an end, reports Homes and Property.
Consumers should avoid switching energy suppliers immediately as this could incur a fee, but homeowners can research the market to see what's available and then consider switching shortly before their existing agreement comes to an end.
Using a price comparison site such as Energyhelpline.com is a good way to compare prices and find information on the best deals, while this site also offers cashback for customers who choose to switch their suppliers through Moneysavingexpert.com.
Last year many people will have signed up for an energy rate that was either capped or set at a fixed rate, as a spike in the price of oil over the summer led to a surge in consumer costs, but since the end of last year this has reversed.
However, many suppliers have been criticised for failing to introduce more substantial discounts in the opening months of this year.
