    average electric bill (TECO)

    What is the going rate for TECO per KWH?

    I just moved in a 1300 sq foot 2 bedroom house.

    What could I expect to pay a month?

    Dude. Way more things are needed here.

    Age of appliances? Age of water heater? Age and size (tons) of AC?
    Hell, age of house?

    Next up: Location of water heater?

    Window type? Filmed? How much attic insulation? Construction type?

    Paracytic electronics plugged in? (old xbox360, ps2/3?)

    AC temp? General electricity habits? Light bulb type?



    What you asked is tantamount to me asking:

    Hey, I'm buying a red car. What kind of MPG can I expect to get?

    my house was built in the 60s I believe, and its around 1400sf, and the bill lately has been hovering around $110 a month, which is pretty good for the summer months. the appliances are mostly new, and the A/C never gets pushed below 70. Usually its around 72 to 76 degrees. last year i had one summer month bill hit $300, but I had a douche sucking whore living with me that constantly pushed the AC down to subarctic temps, and 5 people doing loads of laundry non stop it seemed like. when there aren't fuck faces living at the house, the bill usually maxes out at $200. last 8 months its been around $100 though.

    My 2006 home with 2,000sf, and my bill in winter was ~$160 with heat. The transitional months were $110-130. And last month I got whacked for $236.

    Programmable thermostat installation incomming. Last month I know I left the AC at 77* all day quite a few times. Accidentally cooling my empty home I feel brought it past $200-210, where I expect the summer months to be.

    So I feel it'll play out:
    Dec-Jan, $160. Feb-April, $130. May-August, $210. Sept-Nov, $130.

    Giving me an average bill of about $162/mo.

    My home is 3200 sq/ft, all energy star appliances, lots of insulation (R-50 in the garage ceiling!), just built in November of 2009. Two zones with two 14 SEER units, thermostat set to 76 downstairs and 75 upstairs, decreasing upstairs temp to 73 while we sleep. Water heater, oven, stove, and dryer are all gas. Only my wife and I live in the home.

    Typical electric bill this summer has been $220, it spiked to $272 last month because we decided to try and keep the house cooler during the day. Gas bill was $27.00. Electric bill during the winter months was around $100.

    My usage on the last billing cycle was 2,070kw.

    My average bill in the cooler months is $60. In the summer it jumps anywhere between $90-$120 depending on how low I have the a/c set and how much I run the pool pump.

    Wouldn't it be cheaper to maintain a temperature than trying to change a temperature from an extreme?

    Making incremental adjustments seem like they would take less energy than to make a sweeping adjustment in order to correct a variance...

    not necessarily, even if the figure is correct for a particular scenario... ac size matters, as does insulation, if the house has vaulted ceilings, etc.

    No, not really... And I will explain why soon. I am working on a rather long post on how some people with higher then average bills can pinpoint exactly what their problems are.

    I am unsure if I posted about it.. But 2 months ago I had a $410 electric bill.

    Last month I had a $320 bill.

    This month it should be around 200-250 I believe...

    I'll explain all what I did and am still going to do to lower my bill so much soon. I *HIGHLY* suggest people that want a lower bill pay attention.
