How much is your average heating cost in winter

How much is the average gas bill for heating your house approx. 1400 sq ft?

What are you paying for gas during winter?

Unless someone is a neighbor of yours and lives in identically constructed home, with the exact same number and model of gas appliances, with identical settings and usage on them...any answer you get will be pretty useless.

Joe may like his home at 72 degrees, Bill may be ok with 68, and Mary might have to have 74. Their bills will all be different.

You may as well ask what someone gets for gas mileage on their 2001 truck, without specifying brand, model, engine, transmission, driving habits, etc.

Sometimes you need to explain what your issue is, and be specific in your questions, if you want any valid advice.

Also, I would think that what I pay in PA, will be a lot more than what you pay in CA.

The house was build 1988, temperature is set to 69 and heater is not running all the time. Gas bill is around $100. That seems to be a little high.
What do you think?

I have to wonder why you are running heat in the Victorville area this time of year. You have warmer weather than I do and I'm still running the A/C during the day.

If I was paying $100 for gas when the heat was on even part of the time in fall or spring, I figure thats about right. When it gets real cold I may get up to $150 or so.

I surely do wish you would provide more details when you ask questions. Do you have a gas water heater, has it been getting more use. Gas range? Gas dryer? What was your bill when the heat was never used? $20 less? 80 less? You live (and have lived) there and have access to the bill history, not us.

We aren't mind readers...

Gas bill is $15-20 at most during spring-summer and fall and goes up to $100 during winter (Dec-Feb). The heater is set to 69 and is running 6-10 hours at most in 24/h or sometimes less.
Hope the information is useful.
