    Also, if he was contributing to the bills, you'll probably see what you end up paying (not the actual bill, but your "share" of it) go up.

    On a more serious note. I doubt you'll save anything, you'll lose more as you'll be paying 100% percent of the bills now even if they are reduced.

    Not that much.
    watched 4 hours of TV a day = 1.2KWH or so a day
    light on in his room for 12 hours a day = 0.24kwh a day
    had a 2kw oven on for 30 mins a day = 1kwh
    gamed on his pc for 2 hours = 0.5kwh

    time by 30 gives you about 88kwh, so about a tenner maybe.

    *figures were based on random guesses and thus the quoted kwh will probably infact be totally wrong

    I really shouldn’t have have fallen for that, but I really didn’t think it would be out the realms of possibility to calculate how much a person costs to live in a house in terms of electricity/gas use.

    I mean its not going to be halfed, because basic heating the house which is shared isnt going to change, but cooking/washing etc will be.

    *needs to find website with calculator to prove point*

    Just spoke to my mother (she works for an energy company) and she said the gas should stay roughly the same but you're looking at about 1/3 for the electricity.
