Full Answer

Electric bills are generally lower during the winter months and for apartments in cool climates, as those conditions minimize air conditioning usage. On average, air conditioning use during the summer months can increase a monthly electric bill by $50 to $80. In hot climates, such as Arizona and southern California, air conditioning costs can add $80 to $90 to the monthly apartment electric bill.
