People living in older properties may need to look for cheap gas and electricity by switching energy suppliers in order to save money on their fuel bills.
This is because, according to policy director at the Residential Landlords Association Richard Jones, these abodes are often harder to insulate than more modern dwellings.
Therefore, people living in homes built before 1980 may find they spend more on gas as their home struggles to retain heat.
Mr Jones noted: "The main problem with them is that they have no cavity walls to insulate and with a lot of them you haven't got the traditional loft space to insulate with the loft insulation."
He also noted that this could mean the only option is to fit interior and exterior insulation, which could lead to planning issues if this involves changing the outside of a home.
Recently, Knauf Insulation joined calls for the government to align its plans to fully insulate every home in the UK by 2015 with its Green Deal proposals.
