I had an absolute heart attack this week when I received our electricity bill:
- Electricity usage - 12.55kwh per day
- Water usage - 55 Litres per person per day
- Gas usage - $6 per day (gasp, scream, faint)
Well if I thought I had a heart attack about the electricity bill, it in no way prepared me for the gas bill. Lets just say we have got off our collective bums and started to organize for the hot water service to be replaced!! Solar hot water here we come :-)
We’ve also decided to use our wood heater to offset the cost of gas. I know prices went up but we keep our ducted heating low (no more than 20 degrees during the evening and 18 degrees during the day). This bill is just plain ridiculous compared to the last house ($200 difference between this bill and the same bill for last year). Goes to show what a massive difference that insulation can make.
