Our highest was 425, but it was before we had the insulation in the new house...so the very next weekend we took care of that..we heat and ac a little over 3000 square feet, our budget runs $160, but at the end of the year we are credited for 2 months with no payments....I keep asking why you don't lower our budget.......We are a total electric house so no other utilities to pay

I don't remember the exact amount but I know it was under $200.  We dont turn on the heat until it is under 60 during the day and under 35 at night. In the summer we use fans as much as possible and ac as little as possible. This year I managed to keep the bill under $100 all summer with using my clothesline too
