I moved into a 1 bed flat on 3/2 (25 days ago) in that time it has cost me £130 in electric tokens. I have monitored the electric usage and it turns out the problem is my heating; it costs me £2 per hour to have it on. now my radiators look just like usual gas central heating. I am really struggling to insert a picture of my heating system but it is a very small orange boiler about 30cm tall with a long white electric looking panel that says “heatrea sadia on it” I first bought this to my landlord’s attention abour 2 weeks into the tenancy to which she sent over a plumber to see if he could find any problems (which he didn’t) the next step was to send in an electrician who said he had never seen the type of heating system I have in my flat and tells me it is a 9kw system and uses around the same amount of electricity as an electric shower.?
my first question is; can anyone confirm for me that the type of heating system I have isn’t cost efficient?
my second question is; is there any way I can get out of my 6 month tenancy in the first month as it is simply impossible for me to be able to afford the cost of the electric. I have spoken to my landlord who has offered me another property but the other property is too far from my place of work. To be honest I just want to leave ASAP as every day I spend there costs me an average of £5 in electricity!
thank you for any help
