    Default Energy prices through the roof

    Just got my gas and electric bill through, all I can say is OMFG. Has energy really increased that much? I live in a 3 bedroom house and to run it in gas and electric alone is costing me about £1700 a year.

    I pay direct debit each month and still this does not cover it, 2 years ago with the amount I pay a month I would be well in credit, now I am in debt lmao.

    I'm thinking of fitting a logburner in the lounge but not sure how I would achieve it without chimney, anything to save a few quid over next winter!

    If you have a source of free fire wood then its nice free heat, but if you pay for the wood its probably cheaper to use youre gas boiler.
    Also you can fit a wood stove to a house without a chimney, it would require using an insulated twinwall chimney. Also the work would have to be done by a HETAS registered installer or you have to get building control to sign off.

    Have you used compared competitors prices at regular intervals?

    I live in the Scottish Power area, but every year have moved between providers and contracts
    I started off with Scottish Power, but move within 3 months to someone else
    I was with them for two years and then moved to another provider
    In 2009 I moved again, ironically back to Scottish Power
    Last week I moved to a different contract with them after receiving their latest price list

    I am now paying less per month than I was last year, and overall I am paying about the same annually as I was in 2007
    However, during 2010 I used about 25% more electric due to two very cold winters back to back
