We moved into a new house around 16 months ago, similar size to my previous property.. Gas central heating, 3 bedroom semi detached.. etc
My previous house i was spending
Gas: £34 a month on average
Electricity: £40-50 a month on average
My wife spent majority of the time working from home then to.
My new house i'm spending:
Gas: £100-110 a month a month on average
Electricity: £100-110 a month on average
All based on meter readings, not estimates.
Now we've had a son since then - but generally put the heating on the same amount as our previous house.. Just wrapping up warn, to be cheaper. We use our tumble dryer around once a week - mostly using radiators in house when we have it on between 4pm - 7/8pm.
British gas said that the consumption of previous people in the house, was allot lower.. Considerabley so.
They also couldnt example why our consumption was so high, even they said it was verging on the ridiculas. We'd have to have everything, almost all the time. Plus couldnt explain our both our gas and electricity consumption have tripled from one house to the other.
Anyone been in a similar situation? What was the cause of it? etc..
Just seems mad.
I could understand it being a faulty meter if one of the bills were high - but for both electricity and gas to be so high.. It's unlikely that they'd both be faulty.
