I turn it off completely when i'm not home.

I leave it at 75-80 while I am in the apartment. Sometimes i turn it off at night while i sleep.

If my girl friend is over then it stays on at night. She has a lot of heat come off of her at night. (it's nice in the winter with her

My one bedroom apt cost 30 to 75 bucks a month in electricity.

Oh and I used to keep mine down in the low 70's because I was hot all the fookin' time. Ever since I've cut down on amount of carbs I eat, I find body temp feels a lot cooler. Dunno why, but I keep my AC around 78/79 now. I even get cold sometimes. lol

Weird.

I can't understand people that pay 3-4 hundred a month for juice
Yeah I can't understand it either but yet I do. Last months bill was slightly over $300 for 2400 sq. ft. two-story. The next house will not be a two-story.

There is way to reduce your bills. Check all your thermal leak points( door seals,windows,etc.) Put window tint on all your windows. See about adding an extra layer of insulation to the attic if not already there. Some investment in those areas will help you with those high electric bills in the future. I had a 230-250 a month bill until I had a new central a/c heat unit put in. Add the above mentioned steps and you should see a smaller bill. Good luck

+1

My house is only 2.5 years old so I guess that helps. My moms house has crappy (ie NO insulation) and is only 900 sq ft and her bills is regularly 2x - 3x higher than mine. :eh:

I read somewhere that if your refrigerator is more than 5-7 years old, then it is using 2x- 5x more electricity than a brand new one. My moms fridge was 30 years old.. she said she noticed a helluva drop in her bill when she replaced it a few months ago. :laughing6
