Do the maths
To calculate household energy bills, companies either estimate your gas and electricity consumption or use your meter readings (if you supply them) to get to a more accurate amount. Therefore it’s a good idea to share your meter readings with your supplier on a regular basis, as this should ensure you’re not under or over charged.
However, we’ve found that there’s widespread mistrust around these meter readings. Unfortunately, almost half of you (45%) believe that your reading is inaccurate and over one in ten (11%) have claimed you’ve got no idea if the readings you send to your supplier are right. More concerning is that 53% of you have confessed to not fully understanding your energy meter readings. So what does this mean?
