So I am fortunate to be on CoServ where I pay my electric and gas together.

Typically on the non-extreme months, I come in around ~$125 for both gas and electric.

On extreme months (hot/cold), I come in around $200-$260 for both.

I understand it is variable on size of house, but how do these figures sound?

I run A/C at 75 all day on main floor/ 80 on top floor.

Any easy ways to trim some fat from this bill besides sweating/freezing to death?


As for water, I seem to be coming in at around $60-$70 a month. This is just for my wife and I.

I was watering my grass twice a week (new house) for all the zones probably 1.5 hrs. I know reduced that time to 28 minutes. Is this enough to keep foundation wet and keep the grass in decent shape?

Just curious. Thanks!

Isn't that the job of a thermostat?

Of course! That was a junk post!

But you can go through this:

See if you are missing out on anything. How much do you pay per kWh?
