Cost of Electricity
I have been invited to spend two weeks in St. Croix with friends. I stay in their downstairs apartment which has a portable air conditioning unit. How much would it add to their electrical bill if I used it for two weeks? Do you know how much it would increase the electric bill if I only used it at night? I need air conditioning for my breathing problems, including a Cpap. Any guesstimate would help. Thanks,
Offer them $100 towards electricity.
The AC won't be the only thing using electricity.
The refrigerator, stove (unless propane), the water heater, water pump, lights, TV, phone charger and ceiling fans, etc., all contribute to the costs. Even at 29¢ per kilowatt hour, it adds up pretty fast and even just using the AC at night will bump the bill up.
