    So first off I am sure there was a thread on this but the search function proved absolutely useless

    So I know there are so so many variables but would like to see if I can benchmark my November gas / elec usage against others with similar ish variable (if that is at all possible!) to see if its on the low / normal / high side before I go throwing money at improving things for marginal gains

    3 bed terrace, 2 kids, 2 cats
    Standard 1978 ex council build – brick downstairs (cavity), cladding upstairs, crap double glazed windows (probably all blown)

    15kW greenstar condension boiler set to flow of 70 (return about 65 deg C so not condensing right now but any Lower House feels cold)

    Heating on 21 deg. TRV set to 3 in each bedroom (downstairs apart from living room set to 2)

    Bill for 34 days (end Oct to end Nov)
    Elec £86
    Gas £132
    Works out at £6.50 ish per day

    Heating on from 5.30am to 7.30am then on again at 3pm to about 9.30pm (water heats same time… Old gravity fed system)

    So does that seem alot / to be expected or low?

    Hard to compare previous years usage as change of supplier means all historic data lost

    Cheers!

    What’s your kWh consumption? We’re in a detached house, but run the thermostat cooler (18 degrees), and I’m in the same ballpark as you.
