My power usage seems unusually high?

If you’re getting through more power than usual, first have a think about whether anything in your household has changed. Cold weather can sometimes sneak up on us and we find ourselves using the heater more or having more hot showers. Have you moved to a bigger property that takes more to heat? Or perhaps the rellies have been to stay for a few nights? In which case, it’s more than likely you will have used more power than you normally would.

For tips on keeping usage as low as you can visit the Energywise website.

If you’re using more power than usual and you’re sure that nothing has changed, it could mean that one of your appliances is faulty. For example, leaking hot water cylinders can churn through electricity. If you suspect something’s not quite right, ask your local electrician to come and assess your home.
