    So far, my highest bill was just a little over $400... pretty high even for Las Vegas standards.

    I never hit even close to $100/mo. during the summer. I usually hover between $30-60.

    During the winter I hit around $200-300, though.

    even when it's close to 100 everday, like it has been my bill rarely exceeds 125.
    but it's a ranch house, single storey etc.
    plus I had the attic totally re-insulated and spent about 15grand on argon windows.

    Minimal. No fatties in this home so we hardly use AC even on 90+ days.

    It's been pretty freakin' high!

    Aint no choice in Houston. Unless you are anorexic, or a crackhead, you got to run that A.C. Can't sleep at night in a hot ass house. I need it around 69-70, plus the fan going.

    it's not the heat that gets you. It's the 80% + humidity + the heat.

    Lost about 40 pounds since last summer. Haven't needed the AC as much this year. Bill's been around $95-$100 every month.

    How large is your house and what temp do you keep it at?

    Mine was around $280 and it's kept at 80 when I'm not home, 77 when I'm home and 74 at night.
