My electric bills seem to be almost 3 times my brothers and he has teenagers with games machines and tv's (But is in a new build) so just wanted to see what everyone elses costs are! I have a token meter (Still in landlords name)..I pay in approx £25 a week and cos I was away for 4 days put 4 loads of washing in at 40 degrees which resulted in about 3-4 hours of tumble drying (Old Zanussi) cos had my daughters 3rd birthday today so didnt want the kids to be knocking over drying racks in Dining room/play room...Electricity usage between 6:30pm Monday and 7pm Tuesday was £7.23....
Also does anyone know if I am entitled to any grants - stay in a private rental and am on income support with 2 three year olds, house is a 3 bed semi (ex council) with patio doors in dining room downstairs (most others in street have knocked living roomand kitchen through into 1 room) but house cools down quickly so not sure how well insulated it is, although it does have GCH and GD. Would guess house was built in 70's...thinking maybe insulation may help? How much dearer are token meters? how can I check how much each item is using? My oven is electric, hob is gas, and GCH is a standard meter
Thanks in advance for adviceknowledge sharing!
