Smart Meter overcharging

I have been checking my smart meter reading first thing in the morning and it is showing a reading of £1.12 as gas usage, last night I switched the gas of but the meter is still showing a reading of £1.12 for overnight gas use. How can this happen.

It probably represents the standing charge element of your tariff.

no my standing charge is 20.44p per day, today is the fourth day in a row the gas meter has shown £1.12 overnight whilst the gas has been switched off

This is a customer forum.

That aside your boiler is likely to have a small tank in it that it preheats, this is used to send hot water to the taps when you turn them on until the main boiler heats up. This will turn on & off throughout the night to keep the small tank at a certain temperature.
