Well, the house is 1750 but I dont keep weather records nor sunshine percentages.

our a/c is not on a whole lot because the house has double pane windows throughout and are tinted
to reduce UV intrusion. Our entry door is solid fiberglass and fairly new so insulation here is pretty good.

I have triple pain winders and awnings. It's a hell box here in the summer. At least the new A/C runs about 60% less than my older system does, my bedroom still only gets to around 81 degrees, but i have 60k in A/V toys and the amps and plasma tv and computers put out lots of heat.

Wow! I don't feel so bad now. I do run the home theater system all the time, either for viewing or music.....when I am not in the pool. Plus the wife cooks up a storm from scratch and is an awesome baker. That all adds heat to the house, which then is cooled back down.

BTW - Congrats on celebrating year one in Florida!

Heck, we're getting close to two by now as I bought my house in November 2012...

I guess I should change that status.

Just received my Duke Energy bill for 5-30 through 6-27.

Without tax the bill was $79.18 for 621 HWH. I thought it kind of high as we only spent 6 day there in that billing period. 1500SF house.

There usually is a "customer service charge" just for having an account even if u dont use a single amp of electricity. Read the bill closely.

I had loaned out money to a holding firm that bought up many homes to rent out. Not my homes, just my money being used.
