I had to turn the furnace back on this morning, kinda hoping I was done with it. Oh well, cant complain, mildest winter I can ever remember in 40+ years.

you got that right outlaw...so far we have not had to turn on the air condition yet and we have had some high 80 degree days..the humidity as you know Outlaw is the killer down here....I can give credit to the extra insulation I placed in the attic over the winter..its keepng the heat from reaching us at ground level.....I have a boxed fan cut in the ceiling I turn that on and it sucks the air up into the attic..we open the windows and it creates a hell of a air stream...you got to be careful when opening the storm doors because it will slam it shut so hard its capable of shattering the glass...( hell of a vaccum)..we crack the windows and sleep like that at night...for now..in the next month this is out of question it will be sucking 110 degree air thru the house.... :x ...

so far the highest Power bill is $180....not to bad for a 3k sq ft house with 50x60 shop , fully powred gazebo etc...

I am on what you call a fixed average power bill where they take your average bill the previous year and get an average and charge you that average each month..mine is ($214.00) a month this year..any overage you pay up the last bill of the year, then they re-average and start over.....so far I am $300.00 under the actual usage cost...but that Nasty a$$ humidity is on its way...


Just curious what is everyone else Power Bill and does anyone else use the average power bill program ?

Thanks Brian

I run about $210 a month in the summer (if the AC is running all the time) and $180 during the winter. 2800 square foot house, hot tub, heated 16x20 garden shed and heated 3 car garage. Propane runs me about $165 a month and I have the fixed average program. It has actually gone down a little bit every year cause I have a credit left at the end of the cycle year. We did a lot of insulating, smart thermostat and I also use the heck out of my fireplace in the winter to heat the house.
