If you don't note down how much you used, your supplier won't know when you stopped using energy in your previous residence, and when you started in your new place. If you are in a rented property, your landlord might take charge of this, but depending on who is in charge of your energy bills - as should be outlined on your tenancy agreement - you might be expected to send proof of your readings to your landlord.
