  • We recently moved and only get a water bill every 2 months but have never had to pay water before until now...our first bill was last month and was $78 for 1 1/2 months, that also includes trash and sewer though our electric bill was about $40 this month but the last few months had been around $70 from running the air conditioner. The furnace is gas and so is the hot water heater. There are 4 of us in the house.

  • Not sure about electricity. DH pays that bill. We don't have a water bill because we have a well.

  • When I was living in an apartment my electric (ac heat, water,) was all inclusive and it was NEVER over 125. But I just moved to a house thats bigger, and its mostly gas! So im not sure what the bills are going to look like. Theres 2 adults and 2 kids in it! :( I found out from another CM that you should be able to call and get estimates or request what the bills were if you have a specific house in mind! However my gas company decided to stop doing that recently!!
