with the AC running?
We don't run it often so it usually only bumps the bill maybe $50, from $100-$150. We use fans and open the doors and windows and much as possible
Nothing. Normal utilities are included in our rent. They take a reading of all the meters in houses that are the same (floorplan) then they get an average... baseline, and then they make a 20% buffer in each direction. If you're over the 20% you pay the overage, if you're under the 20% you get that money back.
The buffer is changing to 10% soon. I'm always in the lower buffer or get a refund.
In my old house, my electric bill would have been around $55/month, in a fully electric, 2000sq ft 2 story house. That's what my last statement said. The first statement I got for the current house said my energy usage was $6, but it was only 'billed' for a week so that doesn't count. My A/C was broken and running constantly that week though, I cannot WAIT to see my electric statement!!
$175-$200 monthly but we're on a program finally after a yr of paying this by ourselves...Through the electric company,power on program where we now pay $126 a month,& they pay the balance....Thank God!!!=) It is hot and humid in MN....so grateful for our central air!!!
I have equal pay of $101 every month throughout the year. I like to be able to budget our bills and this allows me to.
between $30- $70 we also live in an apartment
We don't have A/C b/c we don't need it seeing as we live in Washington State. There is only ONE house on our whole block that even HAS A/C!! My neighbor that lives right across the street from me. They've only turned it on maybe 4-5 times in the 5 years they've had it!!! Our electric bill is around $30/month!
pushing $200 =( which sucks, but with it well over a 100 degrees daily it's no surprise
