    Default Gas / Elec bill

    Disclaimer 2 of the members are a 2 year old and a newborn and we have electricity only.
    I pay weekly and it works out to be $38 pw so that's just under $500 a quarter.
    Service and connection fees make up a bit of that

    Edit- we have aircon, electric water and oven/ cooktop that does all our cooking. As we have TV shows that tape in the middle of the night we also don't but tv's on standby. In qld

    Default Gas / Elec bill

    I think it definitely varies state to state
    I'm in vic

    Electricity approx $300 a quarter

    Gas (heating & cooktop) approx $400 peak winter bill but approx $40 summer - we have solar HW which kicks into the gas
    Then it's obviously whatever discount your retailer gives you (pay on time etc)

    There's 2 of us (soon to be 3) in a 4 bedroom house

    We just got our gas bill for 2 months $600.

    We have had a brutal winter and central hearhng in 24/7. It sucks but coming home on the coldest day of the year meant we all had to be warm. Our insulation badly needs work.

    4 bed 2 bath, heat pump instead of hot water system, 2 adults 4 kids... electricity usually around the $700-$900 mark for the quarter.

    Previous house we had gas hot water and cook top, gas was $140 or around that, we just paid whenever we needed new gas bottles which was generally every 2-3 months. Electricity was $1000-$1500 per quarter (had an inground pool and faulty pool pump that was never properly fixed). Plus living in the tropics meant air cons ran 24/7 through summer.

    We have 3 bedroom house but tiled throughout so winter was chilly with lots of heating. We just got our electricity bill and it was $800. Gas has cost us approx $300-$400 in the last quarter also. We only have 2 adults and 1 toddler 😧

    We have a 3x2 with 4 people in Qld.

    Our gas (cooktop and hot water) is about $200/ quarter

    Electricity is btwn $500-550/quarter, hotter months higher due to air conditioning.

    1 person in a 5x3 = $1600 a quarter with a solar power system. Plus $20 for gas.

    2 people in a 4x2 = $500 a quarter and no solar power system. Plus $180 for gas.

    First house had aircon and electric hot water, made a huge difference!

    Just got a $500 gas bill for 2 months. 2 bedroom 1 bath house in Melbourne with 2 adults and a newborn. Electricity is $85 a month. We have gas everything pretty much and have had the heater on pretty much non stop since mid June as our house is cold hence the high bill. Hoping now the weather is warming up that'll go down significantly.
