Gas and Electricity

Gas and electricity bills are one of our biggest household expenses, but few of us really understand exactly what we're paying for and how we can get more for our money. For that reason, we've compiled a short guide to gas and electricity that features our top tips to help you save money.

Units of gas and electricity are measured in kilowatt hours (kW/h). Your gas meter will either display your consumption in cubic metres (m3) or cubic feet (ft3) and your energy company will then convert your usage to kilowatt hours. Your electricity meter usually measures your consumption in terms of kilowatt hours.

Energy suppliers often use a two tier pricing structure, which means that you'll pay more for the first units of energy you use (tier 1) and then less for the rest (tier 2). Two tier pricing structures almost always exist where there is no standing charge.
