Posted 20th Nov
Hi all I was wondering if I am paying the correctly gas bills with British Gas
I have two bed massionte basement and ground floor and in month of nov/ dec/ jan/ feb my bills are like £90-100 per month for gas.
So I wonder if I pay too much or is that normal sort of price?
Thanks

Not a lot only heating and hot water
so sod all in the summer and wear an extra layer now
What price are you paying per kwh and what's your standing charge per day?
I have 3 bed semi pay £60 in summer £90 in winter 5 months. But that is for both gas and electric with OVO
90 for both gas and electric, for a 3 bed semi, but I like it cooler than most.

You can’t compare, look for the best price per kWh and do a proper comparison, you might be able to reduce what you use but that’s a different question.
3 bedroom flat, first floor. Fixed pay for gas £100/month, usually getting back 600-700 overpayment.
Sounds like I pay a lot more
Not sure what I pay per k I will check
I pay £160 for both, about £100 is gas. My heating pipes on the ground floor go through solid floors so takes hours to heat up the house properly. Also use a stove every evening for half the year.
£40 a month for gas & Electric
3 bed semi.
One thing to consider (and I don't think its mentioned already)

If you have built up a debt previously then your payments could be higher to also pay this back over a few months.

So is the £100 just for usage, and if that is just during the winter months or do you owe from not paying enough previously
£40 per month for gas - 4 bed detached
Also depending on the construction of the property, mine is solid wall detached, no insulation in the walls at all.

Depends on a lot of factors.

New boiler vs old boiler
Combi vs traditional
Cooking (gas or electric)
Insulation vs no insulation
Single glazing vs double glazing
Hours spent at home

No installation
Live in a 3 bed top floor maisonette. Obviously can't compare this year but last year Oct - Jan, I paid £137 for that winter quarter. That was from ESB energy. I've been switching yearly so I make use of introductory tarrifs. Currently with Green Network Energy at £71 pm. Its a pretty inefficient house to add to that.
Home gas & electricity bill amounts are like car insurance and mobile phone signal strength. There isn't a one size fits all. You need to do a comparison and see what suits best for your circumstances.

That's cheap as chips!
I pay around £35 in summer and £50 in winter for both gas and electric
I sniff 2 cans a day.

Its a new build house. They get a bad rep, but really well insulated and i've only had a couple of issues with ours (been here 5 years now) and the builder sorted it.
I pay 3.379p per KwH.

Eon. 3.23p kwh, 7p per day standing charge

I use 3 sheets of toilet paper at a time and go quite regularly!
Someone else’s turn......
2.82p kWh, 21.1p per day standing charge - British Gas
2.94p kWh, 16.8p per day standing charge - Avro Energy
are you on a prepay meter? it does sound a lot for a two bedroom property.
£90-100 per month for gas? That's extorortionate. Do you know how many Kwh of gas you use? What's the cost per Kwh?
standing charge?

We've got a 3 bedroom house for 2 people and use 2400Kwh a year in gas (204m3). So that costs us 3.95p per kwh, meaning £95 a year, + standing charge of 25p a day £92. So in a year we spend £180 on gas.

£180 for the entire year?

That's what it has cost is this year by the looks of it. Yep. 2400Kwh of gas, at the previous price per kWh including 365 days of standing charge at 25p.

We're with British gas as well. Moving as we can get electricity and gas cheaper elsewhere

I'd recommend perhaps look if you've got a leak. I'd stop using all gas for a day or two and see if it still creeps up. How often do you have the heating on? What temperature is the thermostat set to?

I’m gonna try and find my bills online now

Then that sounds very expensive. Unless you have heating on 24/7 and have a very old boiler. I would expect something like £50 to £60 a month at the high level.
