Are they actual readings or estimates? Actual readingsDo you have remote meters ie meters inside the house with lil numbers outside Are your meters old?Meters are new, we have three digital ones. I am assuming general power, hot water and night storage
Do you have one particular meter reading higher than others? Yes, the one that meters the general power, but that would be expected Do you have a seperate flat attached or out building. The pool pump house is also attached
Do you have solar hot water; if so is it on economy or 24hr?
Electric hot water cylinder, it appears that this using about the right amount of power
gas hob or electric;
heatpump? big or small?
Does your wife do a lot of baking?
has baked a few things, but not really a lot
Pool heated by any means?
we have solar heating, a pump pumps the water into a black piping system on the roof. That's been running for 9 hours a day.
Any immigrant families stashed away in the garage?
Nah, we're living in the house :-)
The previous owners have been using less, and it's only two of us. I've talked to neighbours and they've been using a lot less and also have a pool.
It must be related to the pool. At this rate I can see a few goldfish and water lilies on the horizon.
