Curious about what the cost of utilities will be at your new home? You can call your local utility provider and ask them for the annual, or average monthly cost for your utilities. You just need the address of the home.
Hydro Ottawa – 613-738-6400
Hydro One – 1-888-664-9376
The average costs* for these utilities in Ottawa are:
Water $143.00 every two months
Gas $140/month – Typically higher during the winter months and lower during the summer months.
You may consider equal billing, if your utility has this option. It will divide your yearly expected costs into equal monthly payments. This can make it easier to budget your utility costs. Always be aware that any cost differences will be paid at an end of year billing cycle.
