    I was just wondering how you guys pay for gas? Meter or quarterly?

    Also how much? Some may not want to answer?

    We have a small 2 bed bungalow ...

    Bill from 27th Nov - 23 March £490.52 WTF Is this sounding right?

    Will let you know, but depending on who your with depends on there prices ...

    check on your suppliers gas rate as there has been a hike in Gas prices latley ... but still yours is a bit steep ... the house not even that big ffs!!!

    I pay £35 a month for a 3 bed semi.

    The best thing to do is set up a monthly direct debit, as you always use crap loads of gas for heating in the winter than naff all for all of summer, so it balances itself out, if you pay the same amount throughout the year, you dont get hit by big bills in winter as it all balances itself out.

    our gas went up a couple of months ago from 25 to 50 so we started changing over, and the people at edf are Fs, they sent us a letter through saying the rates are going higher didn't tell us how much for maybe less then a month give a take a couple of days has gone up 50 quid. that was our final payment and it said on the letter for it to get to them 14 days pior to this letter we paid 50 and they can wait for the rest cos i think thats out rageours for less then a month over 100 quid

    Go STICK IT UP YOUR OWN ARSE EDF

    What temp do you have your heating on and how long do you have it on for each day? Just turning down by 1 degree can make a huge amount of difference toy your bill. Iknew someone who had her heating on 24 hours a day and wondered why she had a gas bill for over £400!

    Wibble,

    We got a bill which equated to £45/month for a 3 bed flat!!!

    When we were in Bristol we paid £30/qtr for a 2 bed, and the quantity of radiators was the same (well one less). All we really use gas for is heating and the hob, not the oven, so where does it all go?

    I hate utilities, they are so expensive it's ridiculous.

    They should be able to tell you the basis that they've worked out that price on i.e. how many m3 of gas they are estimating that you are using. Then go on something like uswitch.com and see who does it cheaper in your area and then switch. It's usually cheaper for monthly direct debit and if you set up an internet account instead of paper bills it's cheaper still.
