Tenants who are worried about their energy bills should speak to tariff providers immediately, it has been advised.

Many bill payers will worry about their fuel bills following the big freeze this month, moneysupermarket.com revealed yesterday (January 18th).

Some 40 per cent of annual energy consumption is used in the winter months, it was claimed.

"This recent cold snap couldn't have come at a worse time for many bill payers, especially for the five million people currently living in fuel poverty,"said utilities manager at the company Scott Byrom.

But customers could look at other tariffs on offer and speak to their provider, because there may be some assistance available, Mr Byrom said.

According to the price comparison firm, there may have been a doubling of energy consumption since the first snowfall in December 2009.

Some £123 could have been added onto annual fuel bills thanks to the last three weeks along, where the country saw freezing conditions.

The Met Office is now predicting that heavy snow could return to many parts of the UK tomorrow (January 20th).
