You have brought back the terrible memories of heating bills in Massachusetts. Since moving to Fl. in 2003 life is much more simple. Remember there are no oil bills!!!!! I own a 1900 sq ft home with 10' ceilings, no pool and built in 1999 with an agerave rating on my A/C and heat pump system. In the heat of summer 90+ degrees everyday my electric bill will run me $250.00 in the winter with the exception of Christmas and the lights my bill is rouhgly $135.00. Now remember that is EVERYTHING no other fuel!!!! Not bad at all

There are many variables to this question.
What is the age of the house, who is the utility company, does it have a pool, ceiling fans, are the central heat and air units well maintained,etc.
In Florida most of the heating and cooling is central heat and air done by electircity. AC unit outside the house and the heating in the attic or 2nd floor.
You can expect July, August and January to be your most expensive months.
But, in general, all utility costs are going up. Dominion Power (Virginia) just increased rates 18%, haven't seen that bill yet!
