Default Utilities in Kennesaw, GA

I would like to get an estimate of what my utilities would cost in Kennesaw GA. I know this will vary depending on household size but any input would be great. Assume a 3 to 4 bedroom 2 1/2 bath average sized home with a household size of 4 to 7.

For example how much was your bill for the following in the past month?

Electric:
Gas:
Water:
Sewer:
Trash:

My Household size:

My Household size:4

I lived in a 2 bedroom apartment in Los Angeles, CA. I had little utility costs that is why I am curious about utility cost when I move to a 4 bedroom home.

It's a hard comparison, since it depends on your lifestyle. How often are you home; do you leave lights on in every room when you're not in the room, do you run your heat at 80 and your A/C at 65; do you take 30 min showers with the water heater turned up to 175 degrees?

I live in Marietta, just south of Kennesaw. Cobb EMC, GNG, Cobb Water/Sewer, Here is mine for a for my family of 5. We have 5BR, 3.5BA house. We have CFLs in every light fixture, turn off lights when not needed, keep the gas hot water heater at 130, the thermostats at 68day/65night in winter and 74day/76night in warm weather.

Electric: no A/C = ~$90/mo, with A/C ~$250/mo
Gas: winter = ~$140/mo, warm weather = ~$40/mo
Water: ~$45/month (5,000 - 6,000 gal)
Sewer: Included in water bill
Trash: ~$59/quarter
