How much would an electric bill be if you keep the tv on and air conditioner on for a whole month in a studio apartment ?

Nuff Sed:
First, electricity prices vary all over the world. Second, the size, efficiency and duty cycle of your AC would determine how much power it uses. For instance, using AC during the winter, with the windows open, wouldn't cost anything. Running it 24/7 when it's 130 degrees outside and it's set to 50 inside would be a different cost, based upon the kWh it uses per month.

For instance, if it's a central air conditioner using 3500 Watts for 3 hours a day @ $0.10 per kWh, that's $32 per month. If it runs 9 hours per day, that's $96 per month.

In other words, the thermal needs of your unit and the cost of electricity are major factors you failed to supply with your question.

Similarly a "TV" could run anywhere from a 10-Watt LED flat screen (15-inch) to a 500-watt plasma (65 inch) or larger.

So, if you're paying $0.15 per kWh for power and using AC and a huge TV 24-hours a day, your electric bill might be about $450 per month.

Pascal the Gambler:
AC uses a ton of power. TV uses very little, unless it's plasma.
It depends on the price of your electricity and the consumption of the appliances.
what type of AC? 1 large energy efficient wall AC could be about $60/month. TVs aren't as much..i would guess the new TVs are more energy efficient…add that to other electric expenses (lights, fridge, microwave, etc) It would be over $100/month in my area
It depends on the cost per kwh. and the total hours. Different prices in each
It would depend on the cost you are charged per KW hour. Each electric company would charge a different rate, depending on what area of the country you are located.

In California you might be charged $1.80 per KW hour. In Alabama you might be charge $1.00 per KW hour.

You would need to determine the amount you would be charged per KW hour.

Also in the equation, you would have to know if the appliances you would want to use are energy efficient or not

There is no one on this forum that would be able to give you a ligament answer. There are too many factors that are unknown to us.

You would be required to find out from your energy provider the cost of the utility per KW hours. In most instances, if yo inform the provider of the energy what appliances you would be using they would be able to give you an estimate of the cost to you.

I hope this has been of some benefit to you, good luck.


How efficent are they? I have seen large tv's marketed as using the same electric as a 60 watt bulb. How much are you attempting to lower the temp? If it is 80 outside and you have it set on 70 inside, that is way different than if it is 110 outside and you have it set on 60 inside.
If it is a small apartment that is fairly new so it is well insulated and you are not trying to keep it to cold then I bet the bill won't blow you away.
Depends on the kW they draw, you'll need to get an estimate of that.

kW * hours in a month = number of kW hours. Multiply that by the price of electricity where you live.

It depends on the size of your studio and the rate of the provider.
