Default How many therms (natural gas) do you use per day (per month)?

Surcharge).


Our recent (Ohio) gas bill was $248 for 187 CCF = $1.33 per CCF.

I'm only one person but I average about 5 therms a month.


Wow. 5 therms a month is extremely low, it seems to me.

The US Department of Energy assumes the "average" houshold uses a bit less
than 1/2 a therm a day *just* for the water heater alone!
43,302 kJ/day = 41,045 Btu/day = 0.4105 therm/day

That would be 15 therms a month just for hot water for the average
household in America. I wonder if Europe uses the same amount?




We used 30 therms in both July / Aug (hot water & furnace pilot) - US.


When I had a furnace with a pilot light, I always shut it off except during the
heating season.

Do they ever actually meter therms, or measure ccf and convert?
It seems to me to actually measure the therms, they'd need to
continuously monitor the heating value of the gas being delivered,
and that seems quite difficult compared with just measuring cf.
Of course, assuming they've stripped the gas down to nearly pure
methane, the conversion is easy, but natural gas can vary according
to ethane and higher content.



They do here... Meter reading is by CCF, then a conversion factor applied to
get
therm, multiplied by the rate per therm. The factor changes slightly every
month...


Based upon the "heating value" of that month's gas, I assume.

uwe had written this in response to
http://www.thestuccocompany.com/main...mo-288720-.htm
:
We live in San Jose, CA and used 883 Therms last year. 487 Therms is
heating and 396 is cooking and hot water. (Dryer is electric). So for
cooking and hot water we use approx. 1 Therm per day. For heating we use
an average of 1.5 Therms per day (487 therms/365 days). Our HVAC is way
oversized with leaky ducts. With properly done airsealing and properly
installed insulation we should be able to reduce our gas consumption by at
least 50%-70%.

Our research and experience shows that homes that have gone through a home
performance contractor retrofit will cost between 10c to 20c per sqft to
heat and cool in Northern California. For a 2,000 sqft home the heating
and cooling bill would therefore run between $200 and $400 per year.(per
year NOT per month). For more information look at the California Building
Performance Contractors Association website.

I should note that California alots only 2 therms a day for baseline
costs
of about $1.22 per therm (plus 5 cents per therm PPP Surcharge); so
apparently I'm consuming double the natural gas energy California
allows
(regardless of home size or number of people) for base rates.


The over-baseline charges are $1.37 per therm plus that same 5 cents
per

Does ANYONE actually use just 2 therms per day for their gas furnace
and
hot-water heater for two people living in a small 1,500 sqft house?

Seattle, heat & water, 2800 sqft house (about 1800 sqft heated): My last bill
shows 3.8 therms/day last month and about 2.5 therms/day average for the past
year.

Since San Jose is considerably warmer than Seattle, I suspect you could get
close to 2 therms/day down there...

I knew it, I knew it, I knew it. As soon as I saw the original post
from 2008 I knew the reply would come from one of the knuckleheads
at HomeMoanersHub. The posters there are simply incapable of reading
dates of posts they show up 12 years later to reply to.
