I have moved into a brand new quarter and been there for 4 months. Over the past 12 years my gas and electricity bills have been reasonable. We pay by direct debit and normally get some sort of rebate when we move every two years. I have been in the new quarter for 4 months and my gas and elec bill has just come through. It is nearly Â£1000. In the last 12 years I have never even got near this amount over the period of 1 year never mind 4 months. I am married with no kids. I leave the heating on 24/7 however the thermostat is set to 17 degrees. I have set my heating this way for the last 12 years. The cooker is electric. having spoken to powergen who have me on dual fual they cannot understand what is wrong. Having spoken to DHE they have said if the meter readings are correct there is nothing they can do. Having just checked the meter again I have noticed that it has used 200 gas units in 1 week. I am pretty sure there must be something wrong. Does anyone have any idea what I should do now.
