$83.00/month ($43 for natural gas used for home heating and hot water heating; $30 month for electricity, and $30 billed every third month (ie $10/mo) for water. My natural gas is on the equalized payment plan so it's fixed per month based on annual consumption. House is in the city.
I guess that answers my question - A house I was looking at stated that the oil heating cost $2700 per year and Hydro at approximately $1200 per year.
Old house out in the country. Kinda expensive - I was curious as to what others were paying to find out how much more this was......I would hate to pass up the house only to find out that it wasn't much more than others.
I'm on the other side of the landlord/tenant thing.
STOP RUNNING UP MY EXPENSES!!!
Though in a month I move to an all-inclusive apartment myself. Damn landlords.
You should know, however, that there's some talk on a government level to require all landlords to submeter their apartments in a few years. Tenants use less energy when they pay their own--better for the environment. Your rent would go down by the average cost of utilities, but then you'd be responsible for your own.
It's pretty amazing how much the energy usage varies between apartments in an all-inclusive buildings. Some folks in 1 bedroom apartments use more electricity than I do in my whole house.
We heat about 1500 sq ft of our 4 level backsplit. Electric heat, electric water boiler, no air conditioning; Run a dehumidifier in the basement 12 hrs a day. Heat exchanger, 12 year old house. Live in an open area which can get windy sometimes.
On the 12 month equal payment plan: Just renewed at $320/ month. (We pay those darn HST taxes on electricity too).
Last year paid $285 month. They raised the KW rate and added a few dollars more.
