Hi everyone, me and my family might be moving to PHX soon. My mom was wondering what the average electric bill would be in the summer with air conditioning and a pool. We wont move to PHX without a pool.

We have lived in Prescott Valley it gets hot there to. So we know about the heat. We have never had a pool though.


Thank You
AZtoLV

The heat in Phx is much worse than Prescott Valley.

Do a search on here to find your answer - it's been asked several times before.

In Yuma, with central air, 20,000 gallon pool, and an all electric house, we pay $180/month on the APS equalizer plan.

Yuma is much hotter than Phoenix...so JetSet's post seems to complement what my parents told me their bill is during the summer. They have a 4000 sq. foot house that uses two large air conditioning units, a large diving pool and pay $189/month on SRP's budgetting plan as well. This plan allows you to pay the same monthly payment ALL year...so they pay 189 every month, even Nov thru April when their bills are very low because they do not run the air conditioning or operate the pool in the winter. SRP saves the overpayment to apply it to much higher Summer month billing. So a 300 bill per month June through September is supplemented by the 189 that was paid each month in the winter. A very wise budgeting option.

I live in Pa. and plan on moving to Phoenix this fall. I have a 2500 sq/ft house, no pool or central a/c. We use 6 window units. My bills between gas heat and electric average about $350/month. I want a 3000 sq/ft new or newer home with a pool. It looks like I'll save $150 a month. I have bundled cable phone and high speed cable internet which runs $200 a month. What is the bundled price in Phoenix?

My cable bill is 138/mo with phone, 8Mb internet, and Hi-def cable box. I'm hoping to have a max of about 200$ electricity this year in a 1700Sq/ft house. Hoping thermal curtains and using the time of use plan to my advantage will keep the bills down. Keep in mind, SRP is raising electric rates starting in May! I have APS, but they are worse with rate increases.
