Switching energy companies may also be an option for nearly 1,900 homeowners in Canterbury, Kent, who have embraced efficiency through the Warm Front scheme.
Up to £2,700 is available for each home under the Warm Front scheme to help elderly, disabled and low-income residents make their property more energy-efficient, while as much as £4,000 is available for the same groups who have oil heating.
The Warm Front scheme has invested over £1.6 million retrofitting homes in the Canterbury area and Julian Brazier, MP for Canterbury, praised the effectiveness of the plan in helping residents to achieve lower prices and reduce their emissions.
All the UK's energy companies increased their prices throughout the course of last year and many households struggle with fuel poverty, where they have to allocate more than ten per cent of their annual income towards energy bills.
Prices have come down again in recent weeks, but suppliers have still been criticised for not lowering their prices sooner.
