There's just too many variables to give you even an estimated use. How many people? What month? What's your typical electrical usage at home? The age of the house? Upkeep of the house?

Heating the pool/spa can run an extra couple hundred easily. Depending on the time of year - you may reduce the bill by not running the AC.

How old is the house?
What temperature will the AC and heater be set at?
Will the pool be covered with a solar blanket?


There are still a lot of variables. I'd guess that the bill is going to be around $250-300/month.

Of course, you may not be using the AC that much that time of year.

It's purely speculation.

This is high but with an inground spa that is used a couple times a week and running the AC on full plan on $350 a month to be safe. It will probably be less per month possibly a lot less but that number is not unreasonable for a modest sized home (2000 sq ft) with all the options. We pay around $150 during the cooler months and around $300 at the peak with 2000 sq ft, hot tub, pool, underwater dock lights, etc.
