I have a 65 inch TV, several videogame consoles, a gaming desktop computer, a gaming laptop, a tablet, 2 cellphones, 1000va battery, run my furnace fan continuously, and my AC is on whenever it's needed, when my area gets to 105F
My place (condo)is 1100sqft, has 50% exposed walls with no insulation at all, topfloor with roof with 3 inches of fiberglass insulation when building code saids 12 inch is minimum
What's going on here?
Why are my bills so different
Where you live? Many of these posters have heat pumps or don't have gas heat or big AC loads.
You haven't told us your consumption in kwhr, just your bill.
$40 a month in parts of the US South is c. 500 kwhr pcm (8 c/ kwrh. In parts of Connecticut and New York, apparently, it could be 250 kwhr pcm (20 c/ kwhr). With California tierred pricing, it could be less than that (25 or 30 c/ kwhr for higher tiers).
