77 with ceiling fans on. My e-bill was HAYOOGE this last month. I keep it on 77 but it feels cooler, for some reason.

You wanna know about ac systems and relative temps and whatnot talk to Ramius. He is the subject matter expert IMO.

I'm a cheap tightwad when it comes to AC, my home is well insulated and generally I'll turn it on for 10-15 mins when I get home in the evening and leave it off after that. My 'letric bill hovers just below $50 a month if that'll tell you anything. But I'm beginning to suspect that my cat runs the AC when I'm not at home. :laughing6

I can't understand people that pay 3-4 hundred a month for juice. My parents pay over 1k a month to keep their house just above the freezing mark in the summer. Even their german shepherd has to be in the AC too.

My bill is never above $125.00 a month. I installed the A/C system myself. It has a 16 seer rating. I keep it at 72 at night and let it get to 80 in the day. I have it programmed on my Honeywell programmable T-Stat. I never have to touch it. I also Insulated the attic really well and when I replaced the drywall in the house, I put in some R-22 insulation in there as well. My neighbors spend nearly $500 a month to keep their house at 78. They think I am scamming the system to get such low bills. That and they are amazed that my house is so much cooler thna theirs. I also put on solar screens with 90% filtration on all the windows.

Did you do radiant barriers in the attic? I've thought about doing that but I don't know enough to know if it's worth the $$$ to do it myself.

it shouldnt be that high even though you have on just a few appliances. wait until it got hot outside, then youll probaly see a bill around $300
