Very true. First of all, my appliances are all energy efficient which really helps. My electric bills have gone up some, but they're still quite reasonable. The hot weather doesn't bother me too much, so I only use my a/c on the hottest days and then let it run on a lower setting 24/7. However, I have noticed that several of my neighbors run their a/c at night when they are home, and then turn the a/c off and open the windows during the day while they are at work. They repeat this over and over, so I'm sure their electric bills are a lot higher than usual too.

My parents have a five-bedroom, 3-bath house, with formal living room, dining room and family room. They have 2 heat pumps, for cooling and heating. On budget billing, their electric bill is $250.00.

I don't have A/C, and I also don't pay utilities. But I can't understand why any of you would turn your A/C lover than 78 degrees. Anything belowe that is, getting on the cool side. I find A/C turned down too low to be really uncomfortable. I'd need a sweater and heavy socks when it's running at less than 78 degrees.

The only reason we keep ours that low is because we have two small children who get hot really fast. When its 75 in the house and they are running about playing, they have sweat dripping off of them.

Mine never goes below 78 BUT the ducts are bigger in some rooms and in my computer room the vents won't completely close and I FREEZE! THEN in other rooms it is TOOOO hot!

My house can and does get up to 85/ 86 with AC AND 4 fans on at the same time!

Last month was around $72 for a 780 sq ft one-bedroom apartment. I only had electric at that place (I just moved on Tuesday), so even hot water was controlled with electricity. I left the thermostat around 76-78.

Ours was just over $100. It's the winter heating bills that kill me!

I just got this months electric bill and it wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be!! "only" $149.47
post #43 of 51
My electric bill is always around $132.00..
post #44 of 51
Ours is about 120.00 I am so used to it being about 80.00. I really wish that they woud give us a break. And the Gas (for the house) is so much more then I am used to, fees for everything. At least the gas (for the car) is cheaper out here.

My cheapest is about $50 in the summer and about $130 in the winter.

We keep our thrermostat set at 76. Lee is always hot so I just have a lot of blankets around. its always hot upstairs though. All of your bills arer making me feel better. We have a 3 bed 3 bath kitchen laundry room, dining, great room and living room to cool and my bill was only 177.

Yeah I live in a trailer that has no gas, so everything, including the dryer, stove, hot water heater, is electric and trialers are metal, so it is a real chore for the a/c to keep it cool, so $150.00 is not too bad i think my lowest EVER, in 6 years, has been somewhere around $50 and my highest was just above $200

I have a 650 sq foot apartment, with no air conditioning ( ) and our electric bill is around $40. mostly because we have 4 computers there's only two of us but my boyfriend has 3 computers running constantly!
post #49 of 51
