I have at least 4 plugged in all the time here, 1 desktop and 3 laptops...my secret is leaving the a/c around 80 and running fans for everything else. Don't use lights very much, etc.

I have 2 computers on 24/7....and a fan on all night...and the TV on for an hour after I fall asleep.

Oh yeah, and since there is someone home all day every day, the TV is on all day as well.

Re: How much is your electricity bill

Well maybe our rates are higher than yours or something. Cause 150 is insane for the size of my apartment.

I leave my A/C on around 73-74. Right now its 74

Re: How much is your electricity bill

Brent, if you didn't have to cool so many half empty bottles of smirnoff all over the apartment your bill would probably be less.

Mine was $85 in May for a 1200 or 1300 sq ft, total electric apartment. When I checked this afternoon, my meter hadn't been read yet so I can't tell you for June. I usually keep th A/C between 75-78.

That is a lot for a dinky apartment. Might you have a power thief. There are people who will gain access to one of the apartments in the same building and actually wire a extension cord to a adjacent apartment. You could be a victim of power pirates. You bill does seem to be double? But at least your neighbors are not *** pirates?

Re: How much is your electricity bill

The bill at my house the wife and kids live in is around 150.00 a month and my kids are not good about turning lights off that are not necessary.

You have to remember certain things are always on. Refrigerators, so dont open them much and the compressor wont keep turning on. Any item that is electronic that has a clock or stand by light on them are always on and use power.

Re: How much is your electricity bill

It also depends on how well insulated your apartment is Brent. Is it an older one or newer? If it's older, chances are it's not as well insulated as a newer one or if it was, the insulation has deteriorated a bit. Also, whenever you aren't home, turn the AC down to 80* (if you are going to be gone all day, if its only for short trips, you will use more energy).

Another thing that might help is getting DC converters (depending on the item, the converters might only be a few dollars) for some of your appliances/lights/outlets. DC is more efficient and safer for electronics. AC is really only used because it can travel further distances much easier (thanks to transformers).
