I just received my this month electricity bill and was surprised with the figure. This month figure was totally different a lot from previous month bills. I know why...It's because now weather very warm, i had to switch on the wall fan whole day. If weather was cold, raining days i will shut off the wall fan. If the temperature was too warm, i had to switch on the air-cond, to cool down the room. My little son very scared of warm. When the weather is very warm, my electricity bill also went up. Had anyone discover this matter recently?

During the summer vacation, we spend a lot of electricity because of the heat. We usually turn on our air-conditioner when we take a nap after lunch and after taking a shower in the evening. Then it is kept one working till the next morning when we get up. Of course, the electricity fee is high. Take care.

Thanks for dropping by my old discussion again. Indeed, during summer time we are tends to spend more money into electricity because of the heat. Same here, i will need to switched on the air-conditioner almost 10 hours per day if the heat is unbearable. But, since from last week onwards the heat had changed to a much colder weather. So, i think we going to have a much cheaper bill for this month.

Yes, Air conditioners do consume a lot of Electricity, and bills rapidly go northwards.

We have much more electrical appliances than before. So it goes without saying that the electricity bill has increased. Especially we have to use the air-conditioner in summer because it is very hot here. This really spends lots of electricity. I try to use less electricity because I don't want to pay so much in electricity. Besides, I pay attention to the environment and I don't want to waste a lot of the energy.

Same here, during summer time i am using more of the air-conditioner, to cold down my room. But, since from end of November, i am cutting down the use of air-conditioner since the weather is started to feel cold again...

This is summer for us. During this season, we always use more electricity due to fans,A/c's etc., Also the usage of the electricity increases everytime when we are in home more time. The temperature increases from the morning makes very warm inside the house , so nobody will stay at home without fan or A/c. But I suggest that the house should be constructed such that it is air free. Natural air is needed in the house(atleast some) rather than artificial air by fans,A/C's.

Yes, you're right, when we are at home, we tend to use more electricity. Well, i still open my sliding door and windows, when i on the wall fan. I only shut all my sliding door and windows when i switch on the air-cond. It's absolutely right, that allowing natural air into our house is more healthier to us..

Well, with summer temperatures rising, I expect the electricity bills also to rise, especially in May and June. We will also be operating our Air coolers and also Airconditioners when it will be very hot and humid. So, I will try to optimize my electricity usage very much in the coming days.
