I'm moving to crowley to a 4 bed, 2 story house (2600 sq ft) next month and I'm trying to figure out about how much I should budget my electric bill. The house was built in 2006. I currently live in FW in a one-story 1500 sq ft house - built in the 50s, so I can't really judge how much to expect my electric bill to go up by....

Please help!!!

Default electricity costs

Electricity costs will vary depending on what rate you are able to obtain and how energy efficient your home is regarding windows, insulation, etc. We usually keep our bills under $100.00 through most of the year with the exception of mid-May to mid-Sept. These hotter months range from 200 - 400 dollars depending on how much we are home. We try to take some extended vacations during the summer which can really help the ole summer electric bill (at least, this is what I tell my husband ).

Yes. It really depends on your personal preferences. Our family loves the cold weather, so we rarely use our heat. I mean, if we turn it on for five minutes ten times a winter, we are doing good. Even at that, our bill is always at least $150.00 Now summer is where they get us! Our home is 2500 sq ft, and to keep it at 69 and somewhat lower at night, you will pay well over $325.00 per month, I'm guessing. So be ready!
