Apologies for an extremely boring post....
I moved into a new house a few months ago which is all electric apart from a gas hob - heating is via storage heaters and hot water via an immersion tank.
I received my first bill for 2 months this morning and the electricity bit has come out a £200 - £100 a month!!! WTF???!
I am at work all day and out biking 3 or so evenings a week (and therefore not at home watching tele etc) - how can it be that high?
Just had a chat to the supplier who commented that they would expect this kind of bill from a family in a 4 bedroom house - I live in a 2 bedroom cottage by myself!
I don't have a dishwasher and I run the washing machine about 3 times a week tops. SO WHY IS MY ELECTRICITY BILL SO HIGH???!!
Is this normal for storage heaters? Or have I set them up wrong? They are all switched on at the plug and as I understand the timer automatically works so they switch on overnight? This makes sense as they are boiling hot in the morning and cooler when I get in from work (and cold in the evening )
So what am I doing wrong? I can't really afford to pay £100 a month in flipping electricty bills!!
I have got them to put a query on the account and I will check the original readings from when I moved in. I am gutted though - what am I doing wrong?
Any help appreciated!
