Electric Heating Average Cost?

electric heating

Just moved to a 1 bedroom apartment medium size. The heat is all electric. How much, average, will the electric bill be if I set it up to 67 and leaving it on at that rate all day? I’m aware that electric heat is expensive than gas heating. I just want to have an idea for budgeting purposes.
I live in Connecticut, USA and my current rate it’s: .124228 cent per kwh

    how cold will it be? what is your electric rate is just two of the questions that make it impossible to answer your question

    Using "67" suggest that you are in the US. And "Medium Size" – is that by NYC or Wisconsin standards? And are you in Wisconsin or Florida? All of which makes a _huge_ difference in what electric heat might cost.

    A 400 s.f. apartment on the 10th floor of a 20-story high-rise in NYC will cost a bunch less to heat than a 900 s.f. second floor of a frame house in Eau Claire, WI.

    You can probably get old data from the electric company as far as what the previous person at that address paid for their bill.

    The problem is, you won’t get straight answers necessarily. When I moved in this apartment, I was told no more than $200 in the winter. My first bill was $400! I use plastic on all my windows, don’t even turn the heat on in my livingroom and kitchen; relying on heat in by bathroom and bedroom only. Why utility companies get away with fraudulent billing has everything to do with the failure to regulate them. I certainly try to get my rights, but you end up making a full-time job of it because all of the sudden, nobody knows English!
