Hi Dojey,

Thanks for the question. I can answer this for you. The average cost for heating and electricity in the winter is about $300 and in the summer with air conditioning it is about $250. Water runs about $100 per month for irrigation and household water. Trash is about $40 per month.

Hope this helps! And if you need more specifics, talk with the seller about their utility history. If you need any additional help, please feel free to contact me.

Sincerely,

We, (2 people) live in a 1400 sq ft 1973 MH home that sits in a huge yard of plants (we water a lot). My utility bills have never been over $200.00. Our home is in Casa de Amigos, Sunnyvale, CA

Gas/Elect = $60 (spring/fall) up to $160 (winter/summer)
Water = $6.00 - 8.00 per month
Trash = 21.98
Sewer = 14.98

Hope this helps.

Ask the current owners the question, or ask your agent, or ask a neighbor(s) with a similar property, or contact the utility company for an estimate; keep in mind that much really depends on usage....

Some of the older homes in Sunnyvale still have the gas wall heaters. Is the home gas furnace central heating, or wall heaters?

Hi Dojey,

This is a pretty difficult question because there can be so many variables that can affect your utility bill like the efficiency of all appliances, how well the home is insulated, what type of light bulbs you use, how often you use everything, at what times you use everything, etc. I looked on the PG&E site and they have a simple utility bill calculator tool that may help depending on how many kwh you use. Maybe this will help you:
