Hi, i wonder if anyone can help to give me some average figures of what they pay on their gas and electricity per month?

My partner and I are planning on moving in together in April and we need to work out what we can afford in rent. All my bills where i am currently are included in my rent so i don't know what kind of figure to work on for gas and electric per month.

We are hoping to get a small 2 bedroom house,hopefully semi detached but prob terraced.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks x

We live in a 3 bed terraced house & currently pay approx £50 electric & £65 gas.Theres only 2 of us but these figures are from the last month or so when the weather has been really cold,so will be a lot cheaper when the weather warms up.These are both with british gas.Hope this helps a little

Thank you all so much! It gives me a better idea of what to budget for. I'm so excited to live in a house with a bath after living in a tiny damp studio flat for so long!!

I live in an old 4 bedroomed Victorian cold) semi-detached house, we pay £128 combined for gas/electric, I am thrifty though and do use economy 7 a lot.

When we moved I can remember being really excited at having gas central heating as we only had electric heating!

Good luck with the move Eskimolou x

We have found EDF to be the cheapest - North East

We're with British Gas and we're on a capped tariff 2011 - I prefer to have it capped as at least I know it won't go up until then.

We use Atlantic for both of ours and I'm well pleased with them. We have a four bed house and it costs us £87 for electric and £83 for gas.

I suggest that you visit something like USwitch to find out the cheapest one for you.

But if NPower are the cheapest, go for the next one up!

Hi
Hubby and I live in a small 2 bed semi and we pay £42 Electric and £39 gas per month. We are with EDF and wouldn't change. We have had no problems with them at all.
Good luck with your move and enjoy your bath ;)

I do think a visit to a comparison site is a good idea so that you can make sure you are getting the best deal.
