Has anyone noticed that their usage has gone up since their Smart Meter has been installed, even the summer usage is higher. Can anyone tell me how I can check this year's bill with last year. I expect it is because the old meter bills are not online anymore, but can anyone confirm this.

Hi,

I've only had my meter installed for a month, but plan on comparing usage this year with last year.

I noticed that I was using some gas when I was not at home, see here:

Do you have copies of your bills before you switched to a smart meter?
How often were you taking readings before? If it was at least once a month I could probably help you make a comparison if you have the readings.
