How much should I expect to pay for utilities in Kentwood each month, depending on the time of year?
Because of the warm summers and very cold winters in Kentwood, monthly utilities will vary drastically by season. The gas bill will be highest in winter, when the heat will be used without fail, and the electric bill will be highest in summer, when it's necessary to use the air conditioning. Also, it depends on the size of your house or apartment, the number of people living in your unit, and whether or not heat is included. On average a family of three can expect gas and electric combined to cost between $200 and $300 per month.
Does Kentwood have a good school system?
Kentwood's school system isn't great, but it's not terrible, either. Public education is provided by the Kentwood Public School District. With 18 schools serving over 9,000 students, this district was rated better than 50.6 percent of school districts in Michigan and 30.4 percent of school districts in the country. There are also several private schools in the area.
How much are utilities in Kentwood?
Utilities in Kentwood cost, on average, about 8 percent less than the national average. For a family of five living in a 1,000-square-foot house, utilities will cost about $120 to $150 a month from November through April, when the weather is colder and the heat is required, which brings up the gas bill considerably. The cost of utilities in the warmer months--or May through October--will drop quite a bit to about $60 to $80 a month. Although summers can be hot at times, air conditioning is not generally required on a regular basis.
