I'm really curious as to what other people are spending every month for energy bills in a medium-sized (approx 2000 square foot house). This came up for me a couple of months ago when we were considering converting our boiler from oil to gas, and then hit me again reading a reaction on another thread to what I pay for oil each month. So, if you're willing to share, can we compare notes?
House: 3BR/2.5BA. ca. 1885, only a few rooms are insulated, original windows with storm windows installed, no A/C unless we put in our window units.
Climate: Normal average cold weather is in the 30's, summers are warm and humid.
System: oil boiler with water-filled radiators (the old-fashioned kind). We keep the temp at 68 when we're here and awake, and 64 when we're asleep or gone.
Costs: $200/month for a level payment plan over 10 months for our oil. Last year it was $280, but we came out $900 ahead so we lowered it considerably. Our g/e bill, which covers electric, cooking gas, and hot water heater, is about $120 if we're not running any window A/Cs.
