    What are your average monthly electic bills? How many square feet to you heat/cool?

    Just curious really? We have 2,644 sq ft and our electric bills average $200/month or less year around.

    I assume you mean the true electric part and not electric as in all utilities. Natural gas and water are what screw us.

    yeah, we use NG in the winter which is why we can stay under 200 then. NG is the cheapest is has been in a decade, how are you getting screwed with that?

    Well I suppose it is cheaper than electric heat, but in the winter our total utilities run between $400-$500 a month and in the summer the total is usually around $200-$220 a month. We also have natural gas hot water. Everything is municipal supplied so the city has their paws in the cookie jar. Every few years there will be a big stink about the city gouging consumers on the natural gas at which the pols who don't want to lose their jobs will give a rebate or cut prices for a bit and then jack them back up when the dust settles.

    slightly under 100 per month. approx. 900 sq. foot 2 bed one bath apartment.

    don't recall an electric bill over 120, even in the summer with the wife running the a/c at 72 all day. advantages of a bottom floor apt. that does not have exposure to afternoon sun.

    My city used to do the same thing, until myself and others wrote letters to the paper and local new organization about NG being $4.46/mmbtu and our city was charging us $12, everything changed after that.

    I find this very hard to believe unless your house is uninsulated or you leave all the windows open.

    Re: What are your average monthly electic bills? How many square feet to you heat/co

    We have 1,600 square feet with vaulted ceilings and a loft. We have electric heat/air (duct forced air) system with a heat pump.

    From October to April we average about $115 a month.
    From May to September we average about $160-180.

    We set the thermostat to 80 during the day, 75 when we're home (in the warmer weather), and we keep it constant at 60 during the winter. Our house is pretty well insulated and our AC/heating systems are oversized, so it rarely has to run.

    Our home is about 1200 sq. ft. I just totaled my 2012 bills for electric and gas (heat/cooking).

    Electric: $704 for the year (about $58/month)
    Gas: $731 for the year (about $61/month)
