We have been suffering from unusually high coned bills for a long time and I'm finally ready to figure out why. I was wondering if folks would be willing to share their usage with me for comparable dwellings (since we can get our power funneled to us in different ways through ConEd I figure usage is a better metric than price ...). Ours for the last bill, WITHOUT AC units, was a whopping 890 kWh. Average daily usage, not counting August, which is an AC outlier, is around 20 kWh. Other people in our building are FAR lower.
So -- 2 bedroom, 1350 sq feet, brownstone apt, washer/dryer (not sure if energy star), energy star dishwasher, energy star fridge, 1 40" flat screen, cable modem, airport, DirectTV DVR box, stereo, DVD, two laptops, 2 iPhones, 1 iPad, (no desktop computer), 1 printer. The rest is the usual lights and such. Hot water and heat provided by building. Three AC window units June-September.
