That is a ball park estimate but in all honesty although it will vary depending on things like age of appliances, whether it is a new energy efficient home and other things already discussed then $800 at its peak isnt an exageration. As i said to you before im surprised the agent your working with didnt outline this to you before. There is no need to run the AC at 72/74, you can run it all year around at 78 and it will be comfortable. Keep in mind you are heating and cooling a large 2 story home. Depending on what neighbourhood you are in during the winter months if your heating is run by gas as many in Winter Garden are your electric bill would lower but your gas bill would increase.

I could easily see an $800 electric bill during the hottest summer months based on that.

We have a 3100 sqft house, 2 AC units (2 story house). 6 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms.
2 BIG fridges
1 normal size freezer.
5 TVs (3 big ones)
Typical kitchen appliances.
An electirc cooktop outside (used daily)

Our first home in Florida sounds similar and also everything else you mentioned, but our home was 4000sq ft and we had a pool and spa and no laughing, 9 tvs.....we paid appx 300.00 per month. Kept the ac's at 78 all the time....Also had 4 computers and 3 kids who never ever shut anything off!

good luck! Living in a 3100 sq ft now, but have yet to get a bill, have 1 less child, 2 less computers, no pool/spa and only 4 tvs...can't wait to see the bill now!
