Because of how easy it has become to keep our home at a desired temperature, we don’t always realize just how much money we are putting into our electric bill. While we are frequented with questions on how to know if what you’re spending is too much.
Truthfully, the best way to find out if you’re spending too much is to check with your utilities company. They can tell you what previous tenants have paid in your home and what the average home your size is paying. Now, this won’t always be directly on point since everyone doesn’t like their home the same temperature. This also doesn’t take into account the change of weather and season.
If you really want to get accurate for what you should be spending in your home, divide your energy bill by the square footage of livable space in your home. So, when you’re doing this, don’t include your garage, attic, or an unfinished basement. Once you find this out, you can call your utilities provider and they can also tell you what the average person is spending per square foot in your area.
