$250 would be a good average to plan on. Most of the homes in this are are all electric, and when we get hot (and a few cold) spells, the HVAC system can run for a while before it gets "comfortable" inside! When looking at homes in this area - be sure to check out what energy efficient upgrades have taken place - the more the better - and will help lower that average monthly expense! ... more

That is almost impossible to answer. Somebody who keeps the thermostat at 78 will have a much lower bill than somebody who keeps it at 70. It not only depends on how energy efficient the house is but also your specific needs to feel comfortable.

My home is just under 3000 sq ft and I live in Austin. My bill in the peak summer months is around $180-200. Now I do not keep it as cold as some of my friends and when I'm home I make sure it is turned up as the home cools quickly. I have friends who have smaller homes and have energy bills in the $400-600 range in the summer. My bill last month was $65 and I had my AC on a few days.

You can call the utility company of any home you are interested and (at least here anyway) they will give you the past 12 months utility bills. Again, it may not be helpful as it depends on so many factors.

Best of luck to you.
