I'm trying to get my bills down, and looking for those remote controlled power boards, or the automatic shut off ones, to go behind our tv unit.

Ranges from $100 to $260 every three months.
We have gas for heating, hot water, cooking. That bill is $70 to $200 every two months.
We have a two bedroom unit, computer usually on, a light on all night most nights. No aircon or fans, but small appliances like kettle, toaster, vac, microwave are used a lot.

Ours is between $150-$180 per quarter.
We live in a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment.
2 adults and 1 toddler.
We have aircon but it's rarely used. Our apartment stays pretty cool and we also get a nice breeze.
Mostly home during the day but there is at least 4 hours per day when no one is home.
TV is mostly on at night and sometime a little bit during the day.
We live in Sydney NSW.

We live in a four-bedroom brick home, airconditiiner in the lounge, ceiling fan in the main bedroom and upright fans in the kids'.
There is pretty much someone home at all times. 4 humans, 2 dogs.
The aircon has been abused a bit in Perth's heatwave, and the kids' fans are on for all naps and at night.
Our last bill was $170 so I'm really pleasantly surprised but we are very very electricity conscious and try to use as little as possible.
We also have gas hot water and gas in the kitchen which helps.
Oh, TV - LCD, only on at night after kids in bed and 30 minutes during day. I have to say it bloooooows me away how people just have the TV on from waking till bedtime. I think I would literally go out of my mind if I did that!
We are in WA.

How much is your electricity bill per quarter? $300ish depending on which quarter, maybe more. We have gas heating and water too.
what's the background
House size? 3.5 bedroom, 2 bathroom, kitchen, laundry, meals, living and family. Lots of tall glass windows which affects temperature control. Not sure how many squares.
How many people living in it? 4 & a cat
Aircon? Yes, evaporative
Are you home during day? yes
Tv usage ? Background noise, toddler distraction while feeding, showering or whatever, grown up tv time etc would be about 12 hours a day. Probably too much by some standards.
What state? Vic
Most things are turned off at the switch (TiVo and clocks etc aren't) when not in use.
Dryer used in winter when clothes rack and the back of every chair has been used.
Ceiling fans used too.

$160-180 during summer, $80-100 during winter.
3 people, 2 bedroom brick duplex, T and I are home fulltime. Laptop is on most of the day, TV only in the evenings. Aircon use during summer is bare minimum, only during the afternoon of the hottest days. Gas hot water and cooking, I use the oven rather than heating the house in winter.
We are in Perth.
