Hey guys, first of all I'm new here and hopefully I'm posting this correctly . Just had a question, I recently moved into a one bedroom apartment. 600sq ft. I have two small window ac units And I'm on a tight budget.... How much a month do u think my electricity will go up If I run them 24/7 on coolest setting?? Thanks for the forums !

Surprisingly, less than if you got whole house air conditioning.

Do you really need 2 for 600 sq. ft. apt.?

@Sgermain1126,
Look at the size of the AC units, probably in BTU. Convert BTU to kWh using Google or your favorite conversion formula. 5000 BTU = 1.47 kWh. The average price per kWh in the US is around $0.12. Your rate might be different. 1.47 kWh * 0.12 * 24 hours/day = $4.23/day. Let's say it is $5 which makes it one dollar per 1000 BTU per day.

@Sgermain1126,
If you're on a tight budget why buy 2 A/c units when one unit is perfectly appropriate?

I use one a/c unit in about 600 sq ft apartment and I live in max sun area...Sarasota FL. I use overhead fans appropriately to distribute the cool air..
