Wondering why you’re using more or less gas and electricity than your neighbours, relatives or friends? Everybody’s situation is different because of many factors, including your type of home, the make-up of your household, your energy contract and, of course, the amount of energy your appliances use.
Monitor your personal situation in KBC Brussels Mobile with ‘Energy insights’, an additional service provided in association with Eliq, and reduce the size of your energy bill.
Analogue or digital meter?
Anyone can use ‘Energy insights’ in KBC Brussels Mobile. If you have a digital meter with Fluvius, Eliq will retrieve the information from them. You can then monitor the exact usage figures of your digital meter and quickly see when your consumption is unusually high or low.
If you have an analogue meter or a digital meter with another grid operator, Eliq will generate an estimate of your consumption based on your type of property and your consumption over the past year.
Why use ‘Energy insights’?
1. Know what you use and when
Closely monitor what you use and identify exactly when your consumption was higher or lower than normal (you need a linked digital meter for this purpose).
2. Compare your consumption with other households
We use the data you entered for your home to compare your consumption with similar households (for example, a family of four living in a 150 m² house). You can then find out whether your consumption is above or below average.
3. Monitor your energy guzzlers
Cooking, washing, lighting ... what exactly uses most energy? Based on estimates, you can identify the main energy culprits in your home. You can get a more accurate picture by using a linked digital meter.
4. Set savings targets
If you’re determined to reduce your energy consumption, a digital meter provides accurate information. Set how much you want to save, check to see how you’re doing in KBC Brussels Mobile and keep your energy bills under control.
