I LOVE my pool so much that if I were staying in MI, I would spend the money to get one there and we can't use it year round. I am in that pool every day and I am not so sure I would be hanging outside otherwise, when it is very hot! I would rather spend the money on my pool then spend it on furniture! LOL! BUT, I still think my bill given all the comps here is higher than others. Gonna have to do some investigating!

Something may be wrong in your LV home thats causing it to be that high kimba, I doubt you have an older home, simply because of your location

I have an 1120 sq foot apt 2 bed 2 bath, and my gf likes to keep the AC around 70, and we constantly are washing clothes, using the stove to cook, and using the dishwasher, and my apt complex was built in 1996-1997

I would investigate that bill Kimba, yours should be much less than that

Ugh, I just got my electric bill. It is $72, and this is for a 322 square foot studio apartment. I keep the A/C at 73, but it is still too much. My bill all winter was $30-$35.

Our bill was only $235 and I was shocked. Our home is 3102 square foot single story with two a/c units. We have a pool and DH installed a variable speed pump last fall. I am a stay at home mom and keep the thermostat on 78 in the main living areas during the day and bump it up to 82 at night. I put the air down to 77 at night in the bedrooms and it goes up to 82 during the day. I run my ceiling fan in the main living room all day long to make it feel cooler. We have a Pulte home and it seems to be insulated very well. If you go into our attic right now, it is hot, but not unbearable like in was in our home in Phoenix in the middle of the summer. I really do think some of the savings is coming from the pool pump. Can't really compare our bill last July since we moved into this home mid July and our bill was only $50. Next month should tell us more.

So turn it up and save more money. Get a floor fan to circulate the air. Problem solved. And no more tears in your beer.
