On average, how much/month are these things?

that is nearly impossible to answer- it depends on personal usage really.

Well, um, I know that but I asked for an average-not exact.
Apparently it's a lot more where I live than it is there.

need to know square footage, heating system, insulation, age of building, cooking source etc...

Then you also need to consider amount of electronics- for example- I have 3 computers/ 3 TVs- that can skew the average depending on my use compared to normal use: one tv/one computer.

We have a 4 bed 2 bath single family home that was built in 92, so it is very efficient and newer construction. Gas is pretty efficient- only $20-$40 in the summer. More around $120 in the winter. Electric for all electronics and appliances is around $120 in summer running 2 AC units. But this is given that the building is fairly new.

Plumbing is also a factor.

Now you can see- what factors to use to pull averages?

What do you pay now?

Gas and water is included in our rent and we pay between 200-400 for electricity in a studio apartment with a laptop, computer and 1 TV.

When we move we will have 1100 square feet (2bed/2bath), 1 computer, 1 laptop, 2 TVs.

Don't know how old building is but certainly not new.

you should spend less or around the same of what you are spending now. I wouldn't worry too much about the utilities..
