My December bill is 145, including 30 for HWT rental. I'm in Ottawa, middle unit town house, three people living in the house. January bill would probably be higher, given it's a rather cold winter this year. My dryer is electric, so is my stove. Most of the gas usage goes to heating and HWT.

Just got my bill for mid Dec to mid Jan, 30 days total...$190 total for 528 m3. My house is a 1600 sf bungalow, only have it for hot water tank and heating. I set my nest to 19 when not home and 22 when I am, usually only weeknights and weekends

Is this abnormal? It was freezing over the holidays and up until this week.

That sounds about right to me. I just received my Jan-Feb bill, and it was $119.35 for 337 m3 of gas usage this period. I have a 1500 sf bungalow too, and I believe I'm only using it for hot water tank and heating as well. However, I typically set my Nest to 20C during home periods, and 16C during away periods.

Have you guys ever used 7 cu meters in less than 24 hours in June? We did.
Moved in the duplex on June 27 afternoon and called in Enbridge to set up an account. The other day (June 28) I took the picture of the gas meter (just because I used to report readings and not pay for "estimate").
Got my first bill form Enbridge yesterday and was surprises because the reading made on June 27 is 7 cu m less compared to one it *actually* was on June 28.
So it is ens of June, we just moves in ans were busy with unpacking boxes ans water is heared wit electricity. However, 7 cu meters were consumed in a day. In June.
It is not about the money (about 1 dollae for rhe amount "consumed"). It is about how the company treats customers. A dollar here and a dollar there and nobody cares...
Frustrated and waiting for the first Hydro Ottawa bill...

7m3 is pretty high especially for June with an electric water heater in your house.

Who took the read on June 27th? Are you 100% sure it was a June 27 read or might have been a few days earlier?

To find out if your place actually consumes 7m3 daily, just take the read today minus your actual read from June 28 then divide by 21 days.

Don't know who read the meter and when exactly. However, on the bill it says that the reading was done on June 27.
I compared the readings I made last night with the picture taken on June 28. There are no changes in numbers whatsoever. So I am getting zero m3 divided by 21 day :)
