Trying to calculate the average energy bill is somewhat tricky as there are many different elements that contribute to how much you pay for your gas and electricity, such as the region of the country you live in, how much energy you use and how you choose to pay for your energy.

However, in the table below we have provided some indicative usage amounts and subsequent costs based on the cheapest energy tariffs currently available on the market. If your energy bill looks more expensive than the numbers shown below, then you may be paying too much for your gas and electricity. If this is the case why not compare energy tariffs to see which cheaper deals are available for you?

Small House / Flat (1) £55 £165 £660
Medium House (2) £80 £240 £958
Large House (3) £110 £331 £1,324

If your energy bills seems high compared to these numbers then you could well be paying too much and you may not be on the cheapest tariff available to you. Enter your postcode below to quickly and easily compare all UK tariffs and find out how much money you could save.
