Failed Payment doesn't mean Failed Payment

In December 2020 shortly after opening my Bulb account, I received an email from Bulb saying my Direct Debit payment had failed. I checked with my bank who confirmed it was set up correctly. I called Bulb who said that the payment hadn’t failed. The real message was that they wanted a top-up payment (for reasons I still don’t understand) and today 2nd March 2021 I received the same message saying my December 2020 payment had failed. I called Bulb again and was told that the Direct Debit was fine but I need to increase my monthly payments to meet my current energy demand. So in three months Bulb have not corrected a communications problem which they admitted was causing many complaints.
