A Smart Way to pay Utility Bills

  • The average household spends £3,329 a year on utility bills including gas, electricity, phone, TV and council tax.
  • One in four admit they don't read their bill statements properly.
  • The gap between perceived and actual spend on bills has grown in the past year

British homeowners were asked to estimate the amount spent on their utility bills. On average, homeowners underestimated £770 a year, a new survey suggests.

The average household spends as much as £3,329 on essential bills every year, but when asked to estimate how much they spend, the average household said their spend was just £2,559 - £770 less than the actual average spend.

A lack of engagement could be one reason behind the large gap between estimated and actual bills, the research from Santander suggested. 


It’s difficult to escape such fundamental costs in living expenses and based on the study, homeowners need to become aware of the misinterpretation on how much expenditure they expect to cover each year.  Covering our core expenditures should be straightforward feasible, however, if you're just about covering bills every month it may not be possible to enjoy the finer things in life.
Maybe an extra family holiday every year or have enough money saved up for a new car or house renovations you've always wanted?

This was the main reason I actually joined Profit Squirrel. I wanted to make sure we could enjoy our retirement years without having to worry about sudden bills and expenses. Glad people are catching on x
