What’s your average electric bill for a 2000 sq ft home? When living in Orlando, we paid between 150-240. In Boise, I pay between $65-150. Curious of the range in the towns around Rochester.

Thanks

I would say for a 2000 sq ft home your electric bill would probably average about $85 a month. And your gas would average about $30 a month in the summer months and about $60 a month in the coldest winter months Jan-March.

So total of gas and electric is about $115 in the warmer months and about $150 in the coldest months.

If you are paying 200+ for a 2000 sq ft home, you may want to inspect for gas leaks or your windows/insulation is very, very poor. I own a 2700 sq ft home and have never paid that much. I just got my bill for last month and it was 145.27 for my 2700 sq ft home as an example. I also have been putting 175 down as my payment for the last 12 months regardless of my bill to hedge for any energy price volatility. I currently have a $170 credit on my account before even paying my latest bill.

And in case you need the math done:

170 credit + 175(payment I'll make on latest bill even though I have a credit) = 345 credit

345/12 = 28.75
175-28.75 = average bill of 146.25 over the last 12 months for 2700 sq ft.

146.25/2700 = .005 per sq ft on average for my home

Using this for 2000 sq ft.
2000 x .005 = 108 average bill for a 2000 sq ft. Obviously it's not exactly something you can calculate precisely like that, but it's a good starting point for an estimate.

So based on my average bill of 146.25 for my 2700 sq ft home, and calculating a 2000 sq ft home as being on average 108 per month, I think my statement that your bill should be between $115-$150 (depending on time of year) for 2000 sq ft. home is a good conservative estimate.

We're almost through with our home purchase in neighboring Greece, NY. I had RG&E call up recent records for the address where they said it was an average $145 per month for elec&gas, house is 1850 sf. Adjusting for 2000sf looks like $156/month or $1880 annually. And yes, this house has single pane windows, built 40 years ago, with Masonite siding...room for improvement!


Though it's immaterial to the discussion, I can't help but laugh my way to the bank with our current utilities down by Cornell Univ. We get propane bills for Nov-$500, Dec-$700, Jan-$900, Feb-$900, Mar-$600, Apr-$250 and typically $75/month elec. That's almost $400/month on average.
