I noticed a decrease of about £25 per month just by changing how my computer puts itself to sleep, it now does it after 15 minutes instead of 2 hours, I started changing the settings for that decades ago as I hated waiting for my computer to wake up again. It's not an issue with modern computers now anyway and putting the computer to sleep puts all the connected electronics to sleep as well, the saving surprised me.just goes to show how you can become wasteful, extravagant without actually realising it.
No, the new Ofcom rules charge the new supplier, when you move to a new supplier.
This is a significant change of rules for suppliers.
I have criticised British Gas several times in here over recent months. Today I resolved to speak to a person no matter how long I waited in a queue. Three calls later I got a guy who could not have been more helpful. The end result is my account has been reset, the units used have been reduced by gas 776, electric 274 and I will be rebilled for the period November 1st 2021 to August 9th. This should result in a substantial refund or credit. We then start again with today's readings. An engineer will be coming on September 6th to fix the smart meters and my phone number has been updated - that one has taken six, yes 6, years!
Just goes to show what can happen when you speak to a person who understands and wants to solve the problem. Result!
Just been under the TV unit and unplugged the HDD PVR and Video/DVD - both been on standby, but we never use them. Hifi was un-plugged ages ago. Also getting in the habit of using the laptop on battery, now I've fitted a new battery - had to be plugged in before, so only plug in when needed. We always run the washer on 'quick low temperature' washes anyway, unless it's something that's got filthy. Occasionally my white shirts will get a hot wash.
Been looking at electricity consumption and we're around 18-20kw a day, so there is still room for improvement - it was more than double that !
That is huge fossy.....i told you to stop growing that weed in the greenhouse lol. I used 9.6kw/hs over the whole weekend.
