I've never lived anywhere before that had annual utility bills. It's interesting. Also, it was a bit of a surprise. After taking possession of our new house, we paid for the year (pro-rated). Here's the breakdown:
Garbage - $125.04
Recycling - $31.08
Water - $246.60
Sewer - $313.20
Hydro (electricity) is billed every other month, so time will tell what we can expect there. |The source of heat for the house we bought is baseboard electric. It\s 100% efficient, but electric heat is pretty expensive. My cousin lives a few blocks from our house, with the same heating and they pay around $300/month. They are on an averaging program....so I'm expecting an expensive winter.
Do any of you have annual utilities? How to you manage it?
