Our AC is on auto all summer when its hot.  We just got a new high efficiancy furnace and AC.  We hope our bill is much lower now.

Here in the south, we are on a/c from April until some time in October.  And it's so damn hot right now, there's no way to go without it.  And the bills are usually $300 plus in the summer.

 Ouch. I hope your mortgage is cheap with that electric bill.

Our AC is always on, it is cheaper that way then turning it on and off. In the summer our bill is about 350.00-400.00. In the winter it is usually around 550.00-600.00. I think this winter we are going to use the wood stove a lot more to save money. We are getting a house built that is solar power friendly. I am so excited about that.

 I thought my 150.00 bill was high. I guess not compared to people living in the south with AC's running constantly. Mine doesnt run constantly. The one downstairs is on and off all day and the ones upstairs are only on when someone is sleeping in those rooms or we are playing in the kids rooms.

 well I can't have an AC cause of my son's lungs he was aparently born with lungs too small and has had alot of bronchitis and bronchiolitis (which I guess is like the baby for of it) and so now when ever he is around cold air his asthmas starts to kick in and then he ends up sick before long so in are house it's fans wich with the awful heat we've been running them constantly till today (was so happy to turn them off and not hear them anymore) and my electricity bill only went up 25 and 30 for the last 2 months my friend on the other hand runs 2 ACs in her house and said her electricity bill went up 200 and something in ONE month
