5 Reasons Electricity Bills Rise

Make sure you're fully aware of the five reasons, an electricity bill may rise.

When the electricity bill costs more, the finger is often pointed at the electricity providers costs! When in fact the total energy used in the home [kWh] has risen!

Ask yourself when you get the next bill, whether you have used more or less electricity. You need to know this, so compare your energy use with the last bill and the same period a year ago.

The five reasons your electricity bill may rise, can be due to changes in :

  • The number of people visiting or moving into your home, as this often increases energy use.
  • Appliance changes, whether new or old. Have the appliance's energy ratings increased?
  • Your usage patterns, as you may be using some appliances more often.
  • The condition of appliances due to maintenance and age. Could you have a faulty appliance?
  • The cost of your energy per kWh and changes to the electricity suppliers service charges.

Knowing the five reasons for increased electricity bill costs, will help you pin-point the real reason for your higher electricity bill. In some cases helping you decrease your electricity bill thereafter.
