How Much are Utilities in an Apartment
Water and gas in the U.S. are not expensive, so they do not significantly affect the total amount of utilities. On average, the cost of set up utilities in the U.S. in a one / two-bedroom apartment costs about $160 - $200.
Due to the fact that the U.S. energy market is represented by several electricity suppliers, there is no single flat rate. In California, the average apartment utilities cost of 1 kWh is $0.17
But the cost of electricity in the U.S. can range from 9 cents per kilowatt, in Washington state, to 30 cents in Hawaii.
The average cost per kilowatt in the U.S. is - $0.13.
Consequently, if you use 300 kilowatts per month, the average electric bill for an apartment would be about $40.
Quite often, water charges are already included in the monthly rent.
The cheapest water bill in an apartment is $6 per month in Florida. Wisconsin and Vermont pay about $18.
Paying for gas costs - $20-30 per month. This expense is almost negligible compared to other utilities.
The average gas bill for an apartment in New York City is $68, while Florida and Hawaii pay the least.
