well - when we lived in kent we had gas an delctric and our combined bill to heat our bungalow was £100 per month. we moved to Norfolk and we only have electric. we only use convector fan heaters with turbo fans on and these also have thermostats and we pay about £55 per month. the heaters only turn on when the room temperature drops and you can really keep the room just as you want it. i always thought gas was cheaper than electric but i suppose its how you use it. i used to cook vegetables on our electric hob - half hour for potatoes etc but now 7.30 minutes in the microwave and they are done and they make brill mash, chips and roasties. so i suppose iw ould say electric can be cheaper

I think that the gas fire would be more expensive, but can offer no proof either way.

I think central heating is cheaper as once it gets to the temperature it stops whereas a gas fire is just constantly pumping gas through.

They do say it is cheaper to have the central heating on low, is far better than the fire, as we are all electric I am not sure. You could e-mail your local supplier and ask their advice.

Hi have a look on your statement for both gas and electricity it should tell you how much per unit you are paying, everyone is on different tarrifs so thats the best place to look
