Estimating Monthly Utility Bills
When selling a home or helping someone rent an apartment a common question is “What are the monthly utility bills?” Getting a better understanding of the monthly utility bills of a home can help you set a budget based on the average monthly bill. Many utility companies such as National Grid will provide you with an estimate average for a particular address. You can get his information by calling the provider directly. National Grid Electric: 1-800-322-3223 or National Grid Gas: 1-800-922-8201.
In the case where the home is heated by oil, estimating the average monthly bill is a little harder. Oil needs to physically be delivered to a property. The frequency of the deliveries can vary depending on the weather or the individual oil companies. With oil heat you also have the opportunity to shop around for an oil provider that meets your needs. To assist you we have provided a link to a website that provides you with the oil costs from a few local companies servicing the Quincy MA, Braintree MA and Weymouth MA areas. You may also want to check with the previous resident to see which company they are currently using.
