It looks good on paper. One stumbling block for me though is the fact that you have to chase previous suppliers for refunds if you were in credit, or them taking money when you were in debit. Sounds like hassle possibly 3 or 4 times a year.
I phoned my supplier last Tuesday and my over payment was in my bank account by Monday :)

And I bet it was a bloke you spoke to ;)

How much is your electricity bill at the moment then? I'm just wondering what % annual saving we're talking about.

We only have electric for everything, its a new house with ASHPs, UFH, large house over 3 floors.

Yes we are disappointed as were promised cheaper bills with the green tech, I may look into solar panels to produce electric to run the heat pumps though.

I thought new rules bought in by OFGEM meant that they had to refund overpayments, perhaps it is only certain suppliers.

Quite surprised how much people spend, we're only around £80 a month for gas and electric in a 4 bed detached and i'm not stingy with the electric - several TVs, amp, sub, games consoles etc..... I may be a little bit stingy with the gas mind :)

Solar should be on the top of your list. I'm generating about 3MW a year, though can't use it all. My projected Estimated Electric is down 1500kW over the last year.

I had an over payment of nearly £458 and after I gave my readings they took the money for my latest bill and refunded me what was left over, nearly £300. Better in my pocket than theirs X)

National statistics say that the avarage Electric usage for the year £592 and Gas £752. So if you take the Gas figure and multiply it by four (electric is about four times the price) then you would get a combined figure of about £3600. So in the the same ball park as the op.

Your fuel usage is very low. My electric doesn't change much all year round. My gas in the summer is about £20 a month but changes to about £20 a week at worst (Jan)

So my total is only about £840 for the year so only about two thirds of the national average. But if I convert the gas use to electric that jumps to £2460!
If I was on electric only in my house I would be investing in as much self havisted energy as possible. :)

When we built the house the only heating options were oil or electric, Bosch Worcester told us Air source heat pumps would be more cost effective to run and as its a cleaner energy complied with FITs etc.

Now after a few years I'm not convinced its much cheaper, we spent extra on the heat pumps and underfloor, I like it but think its not cheap to run. Next time I build will be looking into a smaller house with solar and heat pumps combined.

Trouble is most people will switch once but not keep an eye on it, Flipper checks every quarter I believe to make sure you are on the cheapest tariff, if you can be assed to go through the providers every 3 months to swap then good for you.

Remember if you don't want the hassle of changing supplier (its usually pretty easy) make sure you check your current one doesn't have a better one on offer. The current cheapest with my supplier ends on 31 of the month so I expect a new one to be out on the 1st. If it's cheaper I'll change. It's only an email.

It looks good on paper. One stumbling block for me though is the fact that you have to chase previous suppliers for refunds if you were in credit, or them taking money when you were in debit. Sounds like hassle possibly 3 or 4 times a year.
I phoned my supplier last Tuesday and my over payment was in my bank account by Monday :)
And I bet it was a bloke you spoke to ;)
It was and I sweet talked him into my refund :D

That bill is massive! even for all electric..

Im in a 5 Bed Detached, my last electric bill for 10 March 2016 to 08 June 2016 was £270.00, with Gas a lot less than that, gas is purely for the boiler. honestly your bill seems very high. unless you have the heating on 24/7 on electric, but I work from home, so the house is powered up 24/7 here too.

Swalec. and my estimated annual is 8,194.00kWh

The system is on 24/7 365 days a year, you don't turn it on/off as it relies on thermostats inside and outside the house to work out what it should be doing. Obviously the heating isn't on this time of year, but the water storage tanks are topped up for showers etc so the ashp's are going every now and again.

Air source heat pumps should be 2.5 or 3 cop which means every kw of electric produces 3 times as much in heating power.

ours is £81 but got large ground floor extension. Everything is turned off at plug when not in use. Electric is like £60 per month rising slightly in winter.
