Just wondering what others used over the very cold period from Dec-Feb out of interest. Mine is a 3bed semi-detached house and my bill was just under £400 with British Gas. What's yours? Interesting to compare.
Central Heating goes on at 6.30am and off at 11.00pm Thermostat set at 21c. We are at home all day as we are retired and I find it actually doesn't cost any more to leave it on continuously than to have on/off cycles. We have cavity wall insulation etc. and also use gas for cooking. This years bill was only £20 more than the same period last year despite it being a much colder winter.
Mine is closer to QuizMan's at £379. On some days during that period it was on 24hrs.I guess on average it's about right but would like to hear more from others. I have 3 bedrooms, 2 receptions, a large kitchen, utility room, 1 bathroom, 2 toilets.
We were rather surprised, as we were expecting a rather heavy dual fuel bill from Eon for the home.
Left the gas central heating on all the time with the thermostats set appropriately, and found the 'heat top-ups' didn't occur all that often, which was a surprise. Whole ray of the usual electrical goods on as and when.
Total bill, a little under £400.00, which we are happy with, especially as the government fuel allowance paid for most of it. Usually about £200.00 on average for the three other periods.
We are with Eon Internet, the cost over the last three months, got a bill today, was £442. 3 bed detached, a bit large, solid walls and no Double Glazing. Roof well insulated. We are retired and my wife feels the cold and needs the warmth. Roll on summer.
