I have been trying to work our for some months now, why i seem to be paying so much for my combined gas and electric with British Gas. About 2 years ago i switched to them via comparison site, as they were the cheapest, when that deal ended i checked again and stuck with them but changed to a different tarriff... Anyway, in the 4 years i have been in this house i have always been paying what i feel to be way too much for gas and electricity.
Our house is a modern ( 1985 ) 3 bed semi, the wife is home most of the day and has the heating on quite alot, our plasma tv is on throughout the day and evening, we use the tumble dryer every other day and the dishwasher once a day for a quick cycle, the electric oven is used for average 25mins per day, and the gas hob around average 5 mins per day, besides these i cannot think of anything else that would justify our incredible usage. We are paying £154 per month, never in credit and never in debit, it all goes on usage.....
I have a friend who is a gas engineer come around and check the system for leaks, he confirmed there was no leak.
Im looking for tips on what i can do to find out exactly whats going on, and if our costs seem extremely high?
Any advice appriciated.
