    What kind of equipment in that setup? I have a decent sized Pioneer 7.1 reciever, a 125W sub, a 46" LED, a Roku, a powerline adapter, a network switch, and a couple other small charging accessories, and I don't see a lot, maybe $20.

    Yeah man, I wouldn't worry too much about it, won't be too much. Run the heat or A/C a little less if ya really need to.

    Re: home theater + electric bill

    you won't notice a difference. music and especially moves are dynamic, so the average power will be a couple of watts per speaker, 20W total, with peaks. i doubt you will notice any difference - temperature control (heat & cooling) dominate what you pay.

    you can get one of the power meters if you are really interested. $30 or so and they will tell you $ used for a single outlet (plug surge protector into this).
