That's not accurate then in your experience?
That's fair. Overall the fixed costs drive your bill. The A.C. Doesn't care if there are one or two occupants. It makes a slight difference in the water heater.

How to I know? I have a energy monitor and I rent it out on occasion. I can tell The cost of extra guests. The owners who charge more than 30.00 for an extra couple are doing this to discourage extra occupancy, not because of utilities cost. Edit to add I see the consumption by appliance, not just the total bill.

The biggest driver of cost is YOU and how you use the utilities. I see huge swings depending on the guest.
