How does that work then? by raistlin

I get my energy supplies from British Gas. Generally not a problem.

Today, they did an end of year balance and as a result I have had a refund of slightly over £200, which, of course, is nice :lol: Ergo, paying roughly £20 per month more than I had to.

However, they then tell me that they have increased my monthly direct debit by £15 per month "Otherwise I wouldn't have covered the cost of my energy at next year's end of year balance.

How does that work then?

Cogito ergo sum... maybe?

Their prices are rising to make it up.

I don't like signatures, they take up too much screen space.

I have just had a quote from them for a new boiler, £4,750. The guy didn't look at anything but did say whatever they had to do the price was fixed, so, I HAD THE SECURITY OF NO NASTY SURPRISES. I got a local heating engineer to quote he checked the tanks in the loft, pipework runs and quoted for same boiler £2,350!
I'm so confused as to which to go for???
