Re: Strange...

Bruce it was a 100 watt bulb of the old type,My bill for the quarter wasŁ233 , a lot of things are left on standby .i just dont know where my electric is going .

I think i would be better off on a standard single meter at the moment we are on duel economy 7 ,But not a lot of units are used through the night .

Is your cooker electric Eliza and do you use the oven much?
Electric heaters are also fairly heavy electricity users and things like tumble driers.
I like a light in the hall and have one on a timer to come on when it's dark, it's not a high watt one though.
I found that economy 7 wasn't much use also, as you use so little through the night and Id rather do my washing during the day too.

Re: Strange...

We have replaced all the bulbs in our house with LED saving a lot of wattage. one 3wt LED is a good replacement for a normal 40wt

The dishwasher and washing machine are only run when full and while at the cheaper tariff.
I do all my baking in one day too that aso helps with running costs

Really????? They've screwed around with our pensions and we get bugger all interest on savings. I certainly won't vote for them again.

Re: Strange...

Erm - it was an ironic observation...I think, although despite their efforts, we still seem to be reasonably well off compared to many other countries.
