Hi, i'm new here so please abide with me.

 

I live in a mid- terraced house with gas C/H and three bedrooms.

 

I have heating on when its cold, don't use my fire now co's of high bills.

 

I pay my gas bill monthly via submitting my meter reading online.

 

My last bill was £160 for the month.

 

I rang B/G to complain after asking other people next door how much they pay a month for gas.

 

I was asked to make a note of my meter reading every day for the next week, which i am doing.

 

I made a note of the units i used from last month to this month and it came to just over 300 units for the month.

This seems high to me.

 

Can you please advise me in any way before they ring back on Friday? :|

does the serial number of your meter match the one on the bill?

 

if your monthly units are always the same

then either your meter has always been wrong or there is nowt wrong.

 

it not what you pay, its what you use

 

if you dont know how much gas your neighbour uses

the fact that they might payless than you is meaning less

Gas is more tricky. Don't have the figures in front of me but from memory it's the following:

your units used (since your last bill) multiplied by 2.83 (roughly) X 1.022640 (roughly) x (the calorific factor roughly about 39 ish) ALL divided by 3.6.

2.83 is to convert to metric (if it isn't already).

1.022640 is for the temp and pressure variations.

calorific factor is kinda how good the energy is and is usually from say 38 - 43.

3.6 is to convert from seconds into kwh (once all the other factors are worked out).

Sorry this is a bit tricky. Once you've had a few goes at it. it/s not too bad. I had big problems with Npower so I looked into it and found it's not that hard really.

The only figures that change above really are the number of units used and the calorific value. (and maybes if you're using a metric meter).

Best bet is too google Gas conversion factors and there's probably a calculator site that will work it out.

The companies quite often get it wrong. Even basic stuff. So don't be afraid to challenge them if you think it's wrong.
