'I read that utility bills for a very inexpensive apartment in either Porto or Lisbon would be about 350 Euros a month. This seems quite high'
Not sure where that figures came from as I would expect it to be between 100 and 200 dependent on type of heating and air conditioning.
Also, many real estate listings mention the energy efficiency of the residence.A condo will be listed A-D, the way appliances are rated.
Yes - with A+, A and A- being the most efficient in terms of insulation, which of course makes them more energy efficient.
One way to reduce winter heating bills is using fireplaces, which many residences have.
In my 30 years of living here I have found that most apartments don't have a fireplace. They may have underfloor heating, air conditioners that can act in reverse and function as heaters in the winter or they may have gas central heating.
Just wondering what an approximate bill for gas, electric and water bill would be for a 80 sq mt apartment in a good area of Porto for 1 person?
It depends completely on your use and requirements but 150 a month on average would be a good starting figure for your calculations. If you are careful you could reduce that significantly.
