Several factors can have an impact on the total amount of your electricity bill, for instance, the outside temperature, the features of your home, the number of occupants, your household appliances as well as your lifestyle habits. These factors can change significantly from one house to the next and they have a major impact on how much electricity you use.
What’s more, it’s impossible to identify with any certainty the portion of your annual bill that is related to heating. Nevertheless, if you have created your Customer Space, the My Consumption Profile section contains a chart showing an estimate of heating as a proportion of your monthly electricity consumption.
Given that heating generally accounts for over 50% of the total amount of your annual bill, your home’s insulation and windows are two of the many factors that can have an impact on your energy costs.
In the Understanding your bill section of our Web site, we provide a variety of tools to help you better understand your energy consumption. And the Energy Wise section of the site offers tips for saving electricity, particularly when it comes to preparing for winter.
