Hi all, I originally put this in the finance section but I thought I'd give it a go on here! I've heard people talking about heating costs and just wondered what others might be paying because mine seemed really high compared to everyone else. I have a pre-payment metre that scotish power wont change because it is a rented house. I know these are more expensive! I am using about 35.00 pounds/week ( pound sign not working ) in gas ( combi boiler). It's 3 bedrooms two living rooms 1930's traditional semi (arched front door bay window etc) Heating is on 24 hours a day because there is always somebody in. I run it at 70/21 degrees. 4 showers/day (not all me ) 2 or 3 washing up sessions and a shave in hot running water OH not me ( ; We don't heat all the rooms all day, just close the door unless it's used and turn radiator down low. I'm quite new to central heating three years 4 different houses! So i'm not sure what is normal! We don't swan around in t-shirts,it's a thick socks/wooly jumper house ( : P.S. I've now turned down the thermostat to 19 and tried leaving it off for a few hours per day. It has made very little difference to the ammount of gas we are using .
