Mmm, that depends on the apartment/block, when/where/how it was built etc etc, is there act 16 etc etc, I'm afraid its not a simple answer. There is a gas supply in Burgas but very few blocks are connected (the block has to be connected rather than an individual apartment and only those with act 16). Then there is local heating, were a company supplies the block with hot water for heating. There's wood ie as a woodburner, tho your unlikely to have enough storage, and they are pretty inefficient. Then there's good old TOK, electric to me and you, with air-con probably the most cost effective with the added bonus they will keep you cool in those hot sticky nights. Wall panel heaters and convector heating is probably all on the list. If your renting it will be "fitted" to the apartment. Yours is a good question, and worth bearing in mind when searching for your place.
The average electric heating (with air-con) is 70-100 leva month in the coldest months.

Bulgaria's Shocking Electricity Price Hike Comes into Force
Energy | July 1, 2012, Sunday
Angel Semerdzhiev has attributed the forthcoming 13% power price spike to the surcharge for renewable energy.
Bulgaria woke up to a steep 13% electricity price hike on Sunday.
On Friday, the country's State Commission for Energy and Water Regulation announced that the price hike will be as high as 13%, not the expected 10%, which were already seen as too steep.
The Commission's chairman, Angel Semerdzhiev, argued that that power rates would go up by 13% solely due to the surcharge for renewable energy.
Semerdzhiev specified that the higher increase in power tariffs had been triggered by the fast-track launch of photovoltaic plants necessitating unexpected extra payments by the national power utility.
On Saturday, Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borisov promised that the poorest citizens will be compensated for the shocking raise in the price of electricity.
Bulgaria is the poorest EU member state and its citizens are expected to struggle to cope with the new price hike.
Last winter was Bg's coldest in 50 years.. My winter bills in Burgas, using electric, were 80-90 lev per month..
My apt receives the east-west summer beach breeze, so no a/c required, and rates from May-October are around 30-40 lev per month..
You have loads of options as to how much you are prepared to pay..
