How much do your utilities cost a month?

We currently live in a coop where this is all included in maintance. I know that it varies month to month.

How much do your utilities cost on average?

Just to give you an idea house has central air, oil heat , @ 1900 sq feet, built in 2006 so pretty new construction which I hope means it is well insulated as opposed to an older home.

Thanks for your help Chat Icon

Re: How much do your utilities cost a month?

We have a similar size home. We pay approx. $700/mo in winter months for oil and then usually one fill to get through summer months, electric is between $175/mo in winter up to $350/mo in summer for CAC.
We also have cable $160/mo, sewer and water usually alternate and are around $60 or $30/mo or less each.

How much do your utilities cost a month?

1400 square foot home, oil heat, no CAC but we have window AC units and a pool that use a decent amount of electric in the summer, insulation and windows aren't very new

oil - $2800 a year (we keep the temp around 70)
electric - $200/month balanced billing
water - $400/year
cable/internet/cell phones - $350/month
alarm system - $30/month
exterminator - $300/year
homeowners insurance - $1200/year (approx i think)

this is the majority of the stuff i figure into my monthly home budget. then there are plenty of other costs to consider such as home maintenance, lawn service, etc.

Another stupid question...

I am in Queens. Does Con Ed do balanced billing? Does being in the city really matter other than Con Ed Vs. Lipa?

Also if you have a pool how much more does the pool cost in the summer? the pool is a large oval semi in ground..thanks again

Re: How much do your utilities cost a month?

the only real between LI and Queens is for water if i remember correctly.
I pay in Nassau about $30 every 3 months. My cousin uses jamaica water and pays 3 or 4x that for her water.

we have a split, CAC, forced hot air heat, gas cooking electric washer and dryer

I also do balanced billing, LIPA varies between $100 and $130, National Grid varies between $60 - $80 a month depending on the time of the year
