I've been lurking on this thread waiting for my electric bill to come. And it's here!
So, a 2br apt, approx 750sq ft, all electric: heat, water, dishwasher, washer/dryer. SAHM with 1 child and we really are home a lot.
And this last month the average temp was 39F using 22 kWh per/day for 675 in the whole month.
November was my first month in the apartment: average temp was 42F and 26 kwh per/day for 865 in the whole month.
I'm not a super geek about my usage. I do turn lights and some things off when I'm not using them, but I've not done much about phantom loads or anything. I usually have my day time temp in 71-72, although the first month it was usually 73F. I have individual wall heaters in each room, so each night and morning I have to remember to adjust the heat. It's nice, but I don't always remember to turn all of them back down overnight. I do keep the room we sleep in at 68F all the time cuz we are only in there to sleep.
Also, 10 days of December I was out of town and left the thermostats at 60F to ensure just in case there was a crazy cold snap that my pipes would be OK.
So maybe that accounts for all of the savings on this months bill, but I'd like to think not.
So I see I have tons of room for improvement here.
But other than being more diligent about ensuring I turn all the thermostats down at night (I usually remember 2 out of 3) and turning off all electronics not in use I'm not sure what I can do, I already do CFL's. It is an all electric apartment, so maybe the posts I read weren't accurate comparisons? And I think compared to the previous tenant in this unit I'm rocking' it. My deposit had to be double the highest previous bill of $105
. And so far my highest bill was $88.
