I moved into a new house in November. I submitted a meter reading when we moved provider to Bulb mid November then again in January and then again last week. My electricity bill for December was £59… my bill for January was £409. Just found out as I don’t monitor it closely and only noticed as Bulb suggested I increase my direct debit. So shocked.
My Electricity consumption in my old house was £50 a month. The only change in this house is I’m using 2 storage heaters to heat two rooms and the immersion tank is old.
Really need some help or advice in identifying what could be causing such an eyewatering bill. I know storage heaters are expensive but it’s only two and surely it can’t amount for that can it?!
I know the dates of the meter readings might affect things but the bill for December was £57 and we’ve made no changes since then we moved in (got the storage heaters on day 2)
I’m having a smart meter installed in 2 weeks and they will check the meter is working properly but I’m panicking in the meantime at the spiralling cost.
Any advice appreciated.
