There's a direct correlation between the change in seasons and the cost of our energy bills. During the winter in particular, as we work towards warming up our homes, our gas and electricity prices also heat up!

Following a year of much financial uncertainty for households across the country, the last thing Australians want is to experience more economic duress. Visiting comparison websites is an easy and effective way to alleviate some of the financial pressure associated with the change in season.

Since its inception some six years ago, Compare & Connect has helped more than 500,000 Australians connect to a better deal by presenting consumers with the best offers going around.

Founder and chief executive officer Neil Saligrama says the upcoming winter season is an ideal time to shop around for better energy deals.

"Comparison sites give people an amazing opportunity to understand what's out in the market place, plus Compare & Connect specifically helps our clients cut through the confusion. We give choice and flexibility and we take care of the paperwork," he said.

Here are four reasons why a site such as Compare & Connect can act as a much-needed balm during times of financial stress.

1. Winter means higher bills

It's a no-brainer. The wintertime is the harbinger of higher energy bills. To ensure we are saving as much money as possible, it's important to do our research and shop around for the best deal. Compare & Connect provides us with the easiest way of doing this.

2. Enjoy low prices from trusted companies

Compare & Connect partners with the top energy and internet providers around Australia. This allows them to offer a large range of deals so we can have peace of mind knowing we're discovering plans from some of the country's most trusted providers.

3. Room to negotiate

Many of us may not realise there is room to negotiate when it comes to our utility bills and services. Compare & Connect takes the hassle out of negotiating by presenting us with the best deals, and then connecting us post haste. Which brings us to our final point.

4. Time is money
