    After reading about it, yes you're right...I guess I went from hearing it run to not hearing it run.

    I simply bought a new water pump. After all it is me that needs the water. I used what life there was left in the old one! A/C is 100% mine.

    Yes. But the inverter only has so much turn-down. If the temp. goes below a certain threshold, even at minimum speed the unit will shut off.

    We considered buying it ourselves, but the need to save money for a possible plan B overrode it.

    If you use too high a BTU it tends to run for a few minutes to cool the room and then the humidity builds up over the next 20 minutes or so that it tkes to start again based on temperature.
    If you want to have a comfortable room do not oversize.

    This may interest anyone interested in home air conditioning who may have power supply problems or are just interested in lower energy A/C. I dont know much about them but am endeavouring to find out from Gree in Thailand if available there. Will update Teak Door If i can get info.In the mean time this is the Oz brochure.

    Not sure this has been covered yet, but my air conditioning advice would be the following:

    1. Determine the required BTU based on the seller's calculation, using the area and local factors (afternoon sun yes/no sun, etc.), but then get the next bigger BTU capacity.

    2. Buy a Mitsubishi.

    Is there anything else to add? I don't think so.

    So far our new air con is costing about the same as the old one BUT the last couple of weeks have been hotter than Satan's semen so we're looking forward to this month's electric bill to see if there's any change now the rains have seem to started.

    I always bought a unit 1 - 2 times lower than the "seller's calculation". They always ask how many talad meht (m2)? That's not important, but the other conditions : sonny side, large windows, insulation of the roof, walls, etc.

    Unit 9,800 BTU is enough for my 20 - 25 m2. Of course, we do not cool down to 18 deg, as mostly Thai people do.

    Samsung has WiFi units in Thailand. I haven't seen any other companies with it yet.
    Saw them in 11,000 and 18,000 BTU.
