Hello all,
I need some help if you don't mind. We will be relocating to AC next year and we are trying to work on budget. The one factor we are having a hard time with is the cost of A/C. I know the price per kwh, but my husband would like to know actual costs. I know this all depends on how big your house is and how much a/c you like to use.

If there are any of you who wouldn't mind, could you share your electric expenses? Maybe your highest bill and lowest bill? If you don't want to post it here, maybe you could send me a pm. I know this is rather personal information, but it is the one thing that concerns my husband about moving here.

Our lowest was when we lived in a 1 bedroom in town and paid $50 bzd [without using aircon]

Now we are around $100 - $170 bzd range - 2bdrm apt with washer and dryer and use ceiling fans sometimes.

Highest paid was about $300 when we lived in a 5 bedroom house.

Last few months electric bill costs [and water if you have to pay for it where you are thinking of renting - we used to pay $40 bzd a month for water, now it is included] is a good standard question to ask when you are looking at renting a place here.

Are the numbers you are all using in BZ dollars or US?
