Very seldom, only when we get really cold spells. Our home stays fairly warm during the winter, but hot during the summer.

Just saw my new bill at aps.com

It was $214.90 last month and it shot up to $365.38 this month! And i recently added sun screen to my house, doesnt seem like it made much of a difference.

Not when they keep jacking the rates up...check the rates for last month vs. rates for this month? then check the acutal usage for last month vs. this month. and if that don't add up, call them and tell them what you found.

The rate seems to be the same, but my usage went way up

1909kw last month
3242kw this month

Still keeping the house warm 82-84, but a week or so ago i started leaving both AC's on, before i would shut one off completly when we were not using the floor.

Just saw our bill too...$406! Last month was $229.

The thing is, compared to the same month last year, we used less energy but our bill was $11 more...sucks, doesn't it?

Does anyone check for themselves? I don't trust the utility companies one bit!
I will be writing down the readings myself, at least from the bill where it shows the readings, etc.
If didn't notice the rate change either, nor my usage yet there is more than 35% difference from month-to-month. It might make sense when average day is hotter this month than the last but when it is the other way around, I start to get suspicious...
