    Gas bill

    Hi Guys,

    Just being nosey and wondered how much people are paying annually for their gas.

    We have got a end terrace three bed house and there are just the two of us living here but weíve just had are latest bill through from Npower at £720 a year (£60 a month). This seems a little high to us. Especially since Chris is a tight arse and wonít let me have the gas heating on between March and October and when we do its only on for a couple of hours morning and night.
    For the rest of the year we have the hot water coming on once daily for 1.5 hours in the morning and we have a gas hob thatís used most nights but not all.

    In comparison our electric bill is £480 per annum. And we have got a power shower thatís used twice daily, electric oven thatís used most days, PC thatís on almost every day, 500W security lights around the house that are on PIRís, pressure washer is used quite a bit to wash the cars

    We donít exactly save electricity so to have a gas bill thatís 50% higher seems a little oddÖ.beginning to think we have a leak

    Our boiler is quite old so we think that this is where most of the gas goes but before we rip it out and replace it just want to see what everyone else is paying for their utilities.

    Cheers

    Clare

    3 bedroom end terrace, gas and electric combined is £90 or so per month last time it was re-evaluated. They always end up owing us a few hundred quid each year but they won't knock it down as far as we'd like.

    Cos we only use it for heating radiators, and hot water. No Gas fire or gas cooker.

    Over the cold months, we have the heating on for an hour in the morning before work/school, then its on to warm the house for when we get home, and then is on/off sporadically through the evening. The only time we have it on overnight is when it gets really really cold.
