Utilities 2006


As promised a look at our utilities here in Holland.

Keep in mind we live in a two bedroom apartment and each room has its own hot water radiator. We only use the heat in the living room in the evening if it is really cold and in the second bedroom when cold. Last year we used the heat from the end of Dec, Jan and Feb. We are very careful with our hydro and gas which is used to heat the water.

Electrify – 192.51
Gas – 129.62
Heating – 261.81
Network costs – 280.93
Meter reading – 36.41
Inhome (hot water co.) 74.31

Total, including taxes = 1177.88 euros.

That equals 1786.00 Canadian dollars for one year which is about 149. 00 a month.

This does not include water or cable costs and I will do a post on that when the water bill comes in.
