Can anyone tell me what to expect to pay, monthly, for each of the following: electric, gas, water, trash, on a 2300 sq. ft. house in lynnfield? I would like to get an idea for winter fuel bills, as well.

thank you

There are so many factors that will play into costs - if you have a specific house in mind, I think you can contact the utility companies and ask for a copy of the last 12 months.

Besides actual weather patterns (the only reliable pattern lately is that it seems to be unpredictable), you have to consider how well the house is insulated, what temperature you keep your thermostat, whether you have gas, oil or electric for your heat source, if you are conservative and diligent (shutting off lights in rooms unused, using low energy lightbulbs, etc.)...

IMHNSO, that's a lot of square feet to heat, but then I'm the type of person trying to downsize and simplify my life...
