Consumers have been advised to take a look at their energy bills as tariffs are currently in the process of changing.
Commenting on the recent launch by British Gas of its WebSaver 12 tariff, Moneysupermarket.com's energy manager Scott Byrom said: "The removal of WebSaver 11, and subsequent launch of WebSaver 12, sees British Gas maintain number one position for online tariffs, but the latest deal sees an additional £60, or seven per cent, added to bills."
This might prompt individuals to shop around in order to find a better deal and moneysupermarket.com has advised that a fixed tariff might be an option worth considering for people hoping to keep track of their finances.
Scott Byrom added: "For those looking to fix and lock in prices now to ride out any future increases over the winter period, the best current deal comes from EDF Energy Fixed Saver 2."
He suggested that following the freezing conditions seen in 2010, people should take steps to prepare for winter sooner rather than later, noting that around 40 per cent of Britons' energy consumption occurs during the season.
