I am new to the world of meter reading. I’ve read and submitted readings before but never really paid attention.
Our electricity has been averaging £40 odd pound a month but in july our electricity in particular was £280 i am not quite sure what happened as i didn’t think we had used much gas or electric at all (though i am aware prices are rising etc but WOW!)
So it has shocked me into trying to not have that kind of bill again and i’m currently turning everything unnecessary off as much as possible - no wifi, nothing on standby - not leaving phones charging overnight etc - only thing left plugged in and on i think is the fridge. I haven’t been using the lights and we haven’t had the heating on (combi boiler)
So my question really is to do with usage and understanding my readings
Yesterday the electricity meter was at 55663 and today it is 55673 - does that mean we have used 10kWh since yesterday?
As stated, i had hardly any electric devices on and this time last year our average daily usage was 5kWh when i didn’t know or care and left things plugged in all day
