I just got my bill for $264. That includes $60 in electrical charge. It really hasnt been that cold this winter. My office girl got one for $500. Gas prices is getting ridiculous. I might have to start wearing thermals all the time and turn the heat down.

Last year the Jan bill was just over $400 for gas. this year has been considerably warmer, so I might luck out. (Jan is always my highest)

About $200 per month in propane during winter months.
I drop the thermostat down to 63 degrees when I sleep or I'm out of the house.
I'm gone 10 days out of every month.
I need to move farther south.

Do you supplement with a fireplace or wood burning stove?

The only generation that has been built for a long, long time has been gas fired plants. Trying to get cheap generation in the form of coal or (gasp) nuclear is extremely difficult due to environmental concerns. Therefore, the price of gas has skyrocketed.


Yes, you can have cleaner emissions by dodging coal plants, but it comes at a cost.

Blame environmentalists.

ETA: My house is all electric, and my monthly bills tend to hover between 70-$130...with one month this summer coming in at $250...high AC usage.

My small 3 bedroom home is heated with two electric radiator heaters. It's 75 in here, currently. Last month's electric bill was about $180. The heaters pretty much never shut off.

I can purchase LP right now for $1.50 (brother-in-law has an account with a local supplier), and I'm considering this instead. When I was faced with $2.50 a gallon, it seemed like my cheap electricity was a better idea. But at a buck and a half for LP...

When the Hell was LP $2.50/gal?
Electric heat is generally the most expensive, at least around here it is. Really dries a house out also.


If you go with LP find a used tank and buy your own.
If you lease the tank from someone then you have to accept whatever BS prices they give you. I can pick whomever I want and we just take the cheapest every year and prebuy in summer when it is cheap.

My entire house is electric. I average 100-120 per month. I have a wood stove and a fire place but I only use them on really cold days or when the power goes out. So far the power has gone out 7 times between Nov and Jan.

I have a 500 gal propane tank. They fill it to 80% so 400 gal. It takes two tanks to get through the winter. I think propane is about 1.75 per gal. Elec runs $125 in the winter and in the summer about $80. Once we start getting hot and the AC and pool starts running back to $125.

Dang it, I have a 2400 sq ft home in Southern Indiana and last month combined gas(natural) and electric were $350. I have the place for a wood burner and wood supply is not a problem. Tornado helped with that. The estimate of about $4000 for a good wood buning stove and a chimney reline I figure about a 5-51/2 seasons to recoup the cost. Ther goes the next Ar and the FA M4
