My house has gas heat and I have the 12-mo averaging bill. It's $72/mo, year round. I have gas heat, gas water heater, and gas clothes dryer. About 1200 sq ft on the main level. I have a seperate system for the basement but I keep it about 65 down there, unless I have house guests.

My house has gas heat, and a gas water heater. We have an 1800 sq foot house and with my equal payment plan, my bill runs around $35.00 a month. I also have to note that I am ALWAYS cold, so it isn't like I keep my thermostat down low.

1500 sq ft house, $58-$65/mo average for the past three years. Gas furnace, water heater and stove. Cost per decatherm has varied from 6.71 - 11.44 over the past three years. The lower rates, of course, are in the summer months. Got a new gas fireplace insert so I'm sure my gas bill will go up this year. I keep my heat at 64 when I'm asleep or not home, 69 or 70 when I'm home. Just got my attic insulation upgraded to R-57.



Wow Kaytidid, that's low.

Here's the other end of efficient:

120.00 a month equal pay on a 2000 sq ft house.

But it's 100 years old and I'm running the origional boiler (converted to gas from coal).

OMG!!! I pay $287/month on the 12 month budget plan here in Milwaukee, WI

We have a 1,500 sq ft home with gas heat and water heater. OK, so the home was built in 1928 and in the winter I can pull a perfectly chilled salad plate from the coupboard, but still, I can't wait to pay less than (or even close to) $100/month!

Yeah, it is low...I am not exactly sure *why* it is though. Maybe gas rates are cheaper in Tooele County..lol
