Whats your average electric bill? My friends bill runs about $75 a month and his place is bigger then my house and has a pool to. My living sq ft is 1700. My bill runs $250 a month. He keeps his A/C on 80,mine is 76. He has a timer for his hot water heater to be on two hours a day. He runs his pool pump for only two hours a day. I dont know how that is possible without turning the pool green,I run mine 8 hours a day.

If natural gas is available then one can switch the stove, clothes dryer and water heater to natural gas. Also the furnace can be changed to high efficiency natural gas. If natural gas is not available then the only option is to install a ground sourced heat pump and heat pump electric water heater. Over the last few years the hydro electric costs have gone up here. One they installed the smart meters then the peak rates became very expensive. In house the hydro electric bill never goes over $50.00 dollars per month as everything to do with heating is natural gas. --74.220.xxx.xxx

With gas heat in the winter, my average electric bill for 1,500 sq.ft ranch house is $125.00.

In the hot summer, $200.00 is the norm. --69.244.x.xxx

Average Electric bill (by Reid [KS]) Posted on: Apr 25, 2012 7:44 PM

I believe ours runs about $120 / month but in the hottest months of summer has gone as high as $450. We heat with Gas and HWH is Gas. --108.220.xxx.xx

1500sq ft all electric and we keep a hot tub heated year round...a low spring or fall bill is $175, summer and winter can hit $375. Of course our elec co. is a "co-operative" (no choice on provider) and they are in it to save us money! Yeah, right! --108.87.xx.xxx

Average Electric bill (by Carver [DC]) Posted on: Apr 25, 2012 8:55 PM

I used to regularly pay over $250 for my apartment and over $150 for common area electricity (which is billed at commercial rate). Ever since either the energy deregulation or the changing out of the meters to Smartmeters (happened around the same time) both accounts have dropped down to $80 a piece. This is with gas heating/stove/water. --68.48.xxx.xx

My electric is about $50 a month. Gas dryer, range, heat, and water heater. This is for a 2 bedroom home. --71.194.xxx.xxx

Our beach house (no AC except a portable unit in the master bedroom) was running about $85-135. We bought a new refrigerator last fall and our winter bill dropped to $35-65 depending on heat use.

Our desert house has a super high efficiency newer AC and a 2 year old refer. We are usually only here for a few days at a time, once in awhile for a month or so. We run from $13.00 for security lighting, to about $135 last May/June when we were here for a month straight with the AC on in average 105-115 deg temps.

The newer appliances really make a difference. As does unplugging unused electronics and using CFL lights. --166.183.xx.xxx

I turn my water heater down to the warmest temp I am comfortable taking a shower with so that I don't use any cold water in the shower. It would not work well for a household with multiple people though.

How is your insulation, are the walls insulated --108.11.xxx.xxx

Average $150, can hit $200 on triple digit months. 1400 sf with 900 sf shop. I mention the shop 'cause it also has a/c and a large compressor.
