We moved to a small two bedroomed bungallow 8 months ago. All has been well until we started to recieve our gas bills. We have an Ideal classic boiler that heats our 6 radiators and hot water cylinder. We have found that we cannot afford to have heating on for too long due to large gas bills. ( £400 for a quarter ) ( 22,000 kWh used ) ( Volume 1965 m* ) I have my suspicions that the meter is racing faster than it should, we disposed of all bills from our previous address (unfortunately) so i have nothing to use as a comparison. I expect i will have to have the meter checked, but am unsure if that carries a charge. I have read that the average annual consumption rate per household is in the region of 21,000 kWh I would welcome any replies with regards to consumption rates, either quarterly or annually that would enable me to make some comparisons.
Thanks to you all. Mick.
