i just want to get a general idea if we are paying way over the average or not,so im looking to find out how much families of a similar size pay per quater.
we are a family of 2 adults and 5 children(age 1-10),living in a 3 storey,4 bedroom house.
i have been told that our consuption has increased in the last 3 months,but if anything it should have gone down as i got rid of the electric cooker+replaced it with a gas one,plus i have got a new washing machine(other one was old and not energy-efficient).
our direct debit is currently set at £71 elec and £60 gas per month for a detatched period house (no cavity wall insulation)
3 double bedrooms
2 large rooms/playroom
I have had our fuel bills capped this week
I have paid an extra £28 to cover both fuels for a twelve month period.
hi i have a two bedroom house
and we pay £64 gas per month and £65 electricity,
mine is £80 per month
no double glazing
large 3 bed house
I feel slightly better! We currently pay £77 a month in total for the two - three bed detached but fairly new house.
Hi I have a 3 bed semi.2 adults 2 children.
Double glazed and central heating
Gas £37 monthly
Electricity £60 monthly
thanks all.this dropped off my list and i forgot about it untill i saw a similar thread elsewhere
i was paying about £50 a month for electric 2 years ago,in a 3 bedroom house with 4 dc.since we moved to a 4 bed it has gone up and up-the last bill was £311 for a quater.i dont understand it,yes i have 1 more child but i am only doing about 1 or 2 more loads of washing a week.apart from that nothing has changed,oh,apart from having replaced the electric cooker with a gas one.and replacing all the lightbulbs with energy saving ones
i would have expected the gas to go up in a bigger house due to heating,but its pretty much the same.
i rang the energy company and they said our consumption has risen in the last 3 months and we must have forgotten about something extra we are using.
i think something funny is going on.
We pay £52 electric and £48 ga by Direct Debit a month.
We are usually in credit we have 3 big bedrooms lounge/ diner and our cooker is electric.
DH is a stickler for turning everything off though - nothing is on standby. He read this week that if you turn your microwave off at the wall when not using it you save £50 per year - so that is off now!
1 2 bed boxy mid terrace. 2 children, one adult
£7 a week.
£136 per month for 3bed 3 livingrooms, Victorian semi 2 adults 2 kids, double glazed, central heated and insulated and coal fire in livining room in winter. However I am in the frozen north and confess to using the tumble dryer a lot over the winter.
PTA-i am in the north as well and use the tumble drier all the time,but ive used the tumble drier all the time since i had ds2,almost 5 years ago.
About 35 quid lekki/month.
That includes all cooking but heating is on oil (About 65/month). 2 adults, 4 LOs, big house with g\ood insulation.
We were paying £60 per month for gas and lecki.
Alas we have seriously misjudged how much we should have being paying for our large 3 storey + cellar victorian house. We moved in a year ago .
We have been hit with a bill for £900 odd quid.
£60 all in for gas and electric, and they refunded us £125 cos we were too much in credit! Not sure why mine is lower than most of yours. Live in a 1970s 3-bed detached (no cavity wall insulation, although should get it), have gas hob and electric oven, use my tumble drier (try not to, but you know how it is when the washing builds up), don't have a microwave or freezer, one mid-size tv, computers are laptops so run off batteries for 50% of the time. Blow dry my hair every day.
We do switch everything off at night and keep the heating thermostat quite low, but otherwise feel we're pretty normal. My supplier is Scottish Hydro Electric, and i was paying about the same when we were with our last supplier (Scottish Power I think).
for some reason my 3 bed mid terrace costs £120 per month gas and £70 elec .. seems excessive but they have checked meter readings
£5/month gas (heating & hot water) in summer, £20/month in winter MAX. Leccy £42/month all year round. 4 yr old mid-terrace 3 bed, no tumble dryer, 4 tellies, computer, blimmin games consoles on 3 of the tellies, chargers for ds's & mobiles, electric cooker, 15-20 wash loads a week (A rated washing machine). No dishwasher or tumble dryer, supplier Utility Warehouse, all in deal with my phone & broadband, which costs me £20/month, all calls under 1 hr to landlines are free, 0845 & 0870 numbers half BT prices & no BT line rental to pay. With between 4 & 7 people in the house! so, with my sky bill for £21/month, all in £94/month (average) for digital tv, gas, leccy, phone & broadband. Plus £4/week water (we save water & use wisely,half flush loos help).
£65 direct debit per month for just electric. We're in a 5 bed old Victorian house. Oil c/h.
86 quid a month for the gas and electric, we live in a 3 bed semi but dh is quite militant about not wasting energy, so everything is switched off at the mains at night and our heating is not set very high, so only really comes on when it is quite cold.
£85 pcm electric
£55 pcm gas
5 year old 4 bedroom link detached.
Just checked my old bills when we moved in 5 years ago bills were about half.
£10 a week elec
£3 a week gas
2 adults, 3 kids, 3 bed semi.
£75 a month for both
3 bed detached
with double glazing and cavity wall insulation.
