I voted 150 because that’s usually the amount for both bills combined… We have gas heat and electric AC… So In the winter gas is higher and in the summer electric is higher… We have a 2 story 3 bedroom house… But mostly we have the downstairs living space cut off from heating and cooling as well as 2/3 bedrooms cuz we just don’t use them right now… I’m sure when we have kids things will be more expensive 🙂

We live in an 860 sq foot apartment, and I voted $50/month, but it’s actually 60 every two, which we’re billed in equal payments to normalize the months that are more/less. We use heat in the winter, but don’t have AC, and our water heater is is a shared boiler in the basement, which makes a big difference to that particular bill, and ups our strata fees. So definitely something to check wheter you have your own in unit hot water tank.

Our electric runs about $35-$45 a month. Maybe $50 if we run the AC a lot. We live in a 2 bedroom apartment, about 700sf

Wow I am so jealous! Since we live in a hot climate so I know our bill will be at least 80 (although we budgeted for more). When I was living in texas in a one bedroom, I paid between 75 (in the winter) and up to 110 (in the summer).
From everyone’s comments thus far it is looking like those who don’t have to use their AC very often pay the least. This makes me wonder about the percentages and what affect other things such as lights and appliances have on the overall cost. Hmm I sense an experiment coming…

This is more like what I was thinking when I saw the title! lol.
I live in an efficiency apartment, so mine would be lower than most anyway… but I usually pay about $25 a month for electric. Maybe up to $30 in the summer when I have the air on almost all night, lol. I live in 500-600 sq. ft. I don’t have to pay for heat though, but honestly my building is so warm I almost never used the heat anyway and I’m in Wisconsin… just lucky I guess.
I voted $50 since it was the lowest option, before I realized there was an “other” (silly me).

Our gas bill is usually like $18 and our electric bill is usually around $30. Gets a bit higher in summer but not a ton. We have a 2 bedroom condo.

I voted $100 but its more so around 80-90 dollars. We live in a 1 bedroom apartment. BUT we also blast the heat/air depending on the season.

It varies drastically. In the winter my gas bill is around $150 and electric is probably $75. In the summer gas goes down to around $40 and electric around $30.

Mine is $0- we have a solar unit and get our gas through the same company that buys our solar elec units back off us so every month they owe us money!

About $60 most months for gas and electric and about $80 in the winter if the heater is going. We have a larger 2bd apartment in San Francisco so the weather is mild most of the year and we don’t have or need a/c.

$0, everything is included in our apartment. 🙂

Our electric and gas bills are separate. We were told when we moved in that they would each average about $60 per month, but so far it’s been significantly less.

@Gingernx01: We have a large apartment and it kinda depends on the season for us, but ours averages between $50-65/month. That’s being a little stingy with the AC/heat for us though haha.

We get our bills every 3 months. Our heat is gas, so ours is pretty high through the winter at about £500 for both for 3 months (that’s ~$800). During the summer, it’s a lot lower, usually about half that.

Usually around $50-60 per month (1-bedroom apartment), but this month it was less because the weather is at that not-warm-enough-for-AC-but-not-cold-enough-for-heat stage.
