I would say it should be between 100-150 per month. My house is much bigger and my bill is around $160 per month but we have a "green" house, all our appliances are energy efficient, CFL's in all the rooms, good insulation and all the windows and doors are sealed well. Our house faces North-South and has a big shade tree.

Summer could be closer to $300 if the A/C is 10 years or older. A pool will also add a few $$$

You can do a search for the average utility bill amount based on the address of the home you're considering.

Add $100/mth to what everyone posts and you should be in the ballpark.

ouch. my 2750sq.ft. 2007 pulte home (10ft ceilings, 6" exterior walls, blown in insulation, roof insulated), i'm on a $130/month budget bill with TEP. although i have gas dryer, stove, and hot water tank, SW Gas averages about $35/mo. so total for me is about $165/month. i too use CFL's everywhere, and looking to change some of those into LED bulbs. my house is a east-west facing home (east in the backyard), and i have zero shade all year 'round. i also use auto sensing/timer switches in closets and garage.

to the OP: save by turning stuff off when you go out, turn your thermostat AC up and heat down when you are not home. keep windows well shaded with blinds. apply reflective window films, upgrade appliances when possible.
