I am currently struggling with the increase in energy costs, my electricity bills are already nearly unaffordable in winter as my flat is fully electric. I am spending around £180 per month in winter, and around £40 per month in summer - the difference between the two is entirely due to my heating. I live in a small one bedroom flat and during the winter I heat only my living room during the day, to around 19C. I cannot keep paying these costs.
I have realised that I would quite possibly be better off on a single rate tariff rather than Economy 7 which I’m currently on, as the overwhelming majority of my electricity usage comes from my heating which is only switched on during the day and evening. My night time electricity usage is very low and I don’t use the heating overnight.
Can someone please advise the best way to confirm if I’d be better off on a single rate tariff, and if it is possible to change?
