Keep Some Money For Yourself This Winter!
Based on the average homeowner’s spending data from a study in 2011, it was determined that utility bills reached an all-time high in that particular year. Costs are projected to continue this expensive climb with no end in sight. Americans are paying roughly 2% more per month on utilities compared to the same time in 2010.
The average utility bill in the State of Michigan averages around $199.00 per month.
On average, states in the north face the steepest utility costs with the electricity we use rising at an even higher rate and adding approximately $300 per year to a household’s electricity spending. Electricity now accounts for roughly $1.50 of every $100 of our after-tax income.
One of the ways you can keep your utility expenses low, especially when it comes to your heating and cooling needs, is by having regularly scheduled maintenance performed on your furnace and air conditioners.
