Are there any average use guides for gas and elec usage for a family of four who have the following..

Electric oven but Gas Hob
Water and central heating by Gas
Gas fire (winter only)
Electric condensing tumble dryer (winter only)
TV's playstations etc (school hols on a lot)
Gravity shower (not electric)

My gas usage is currently below 1 unit per day
Electric is currently averaging 15 units a day

I have no standby's

Is the above a good average for 'Summer'?

    In the past three months my house has used around 2500 units of electricity, That's about 28 a day.

    Three bedroom house with quite a lot of electrical equipment running. I work from home, So I use quite a bit of electricity!

    Difficult to estimate. The efficiency of the heating and the construction of the house affects the heating demand.

    Somewhere between 17000 kWh and 26000 kWh of gas and let's say 6000 kWh for electricity per year? (Wild guesses)
