Imelda HL

the most we paid for an apartment with 2 bedrooms was about $300 a month.... now we paid about $200 for a house with 3 bedrooms... because we are using swamp cooler ( window cooler), it's not as cold as the central ac, but it's still comfy enough

but on winter we cheers bounce because we only have to pay $60 to $90

We keep our house pretty cool in N.O. and during the summer, we usually pay around $150 a month. In the almost 15 years we've lived in this house (just under 2200 square feet), the highest it ever went was $220. But we were lucky, as most of our friends were paying $500 to $600 that month, as the temp was in the high 90s almost the whole month with sweltering humidity to match. We bought our house totally renovated so we were lucky that the previous owner insulated it so well.

In winter, we rarely use the heater -- never at night and often about 5 minutes in the morning to take the chill off. Our winter electrical runs $30 to $40 (thank you, God!!!) and the gas ranges from $30 to $50 a month in winter, depending on how often we use our gas fireplace. In summer, the gas bill is usually $12 to $16 a month.

I think we're pretty lucky considering how freaking hot it gets here and for how long.
