My house is a large 2 bedroom bungalow. I say large because we have large rooms and a big kitchen dining room and extra big sitting room as well as two double bedrooms.
There is no gas main where I am so I use all electric - economy 7
The bill for this last year has come to £1086 . That includes the central heating last winter. The company is British Gas - so not the cheapest I am sure but given its E7 none of them come in greatly cheaper for my area (Cornwall) so I have stayed with who I know since they have been no trouble.
My eco conscious and money miser husband thinks our bill is high and wants me to look for ways to cut it. I cant find any.
He wants me to stop using my washing machine which goes on once a week - or maybe twice if I have anything big and my usual wash is 40 degrees although I occasionally use the higher wash rates for bed clothes and towels.
He wants me to use the dishwasher less - I put it on every other day at normal ( 55 degrees) wash and he wants to switch the emersion heater off altogether - it goes on for an hour each night to provide water for cleaning and washing every day. He says our bill is high ( the DD is £26 a month ) but I cant see where its going other than on things I need now.
My mum tells me her leccy bill is higher than ours yet she uses a coal fire central heating system ( but my parents are old and need the heat so do supplement it with electric fires and she has a much bigger house).
I just wondered what other people who are all electric in a comparable situation might be paying.
Sorry to be a pain.
