    Air Con with programmable thermostat

    Hi everyone,

    We are currently living in the US. But we have decided to move to Thailand to be with family.

    So currently we are planning to build a house, so I'm gathering information for that.

    Here in the US we are used to digital programmable thermostats that helps to maintain the home at a set temperatures for when you wakeup, leave home, return home, and to go sleep.

    In my previous stays in Thailand, I have always had to use aircon with a remote which always gets too cold or too hot and never right.

    The question is, does Thailand have the kind of aircon system that I am describing?

    If so where can I get it? Where can I find more information?

    Thanks

    Kim

    Suggest you look at some of the threads here in the Construction forum. All sorts of good stuff for doing your homework on Thai building.

    Thanks

    Thanks for your reply. I'm not actually in Thailand yet. I did visit the major manufacturer's website and they all just seem to have the standard wall mount with remote control which is really just a digital thermostat not a programmable one.

    Thanks for the homepro link... I haven't been in Thailand for a while so I'm not too familiar with the scene.

    Thanks

    Kim

    The problem is generally the placement of the remote, ie you got a warm room with the wall getting real hard sunlight on it, and your remote is there, you turn on the air con, 40 minutes later it is nice and cool and the compressor cuts out, 1 minute later the heat from the wall hits the remote, on comes the air con again, etc etc etc.

    FYI, the temp sensor is not in the remote in 99% of AC's. It is on the wall unit itself.

    The remote sends an IR signal to the wall unit when you press a button. If you run out of battery or put the remote in another room, the temp controlling wouldn't work if the sensor was in the remote. But the AC still works fine if you throw the remote out the window.

    Yes. In the fan/cooling unit on most newer models. Normally mounted just below ceiling. Bit warmer up there so setting thermostat on remote a couple degrees higher than you want in room is best. I set mine at 26 or 27 for room temp of about 25.

    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

    The thermostat sensor is usually situated in the 'return air' of the evaporator unit (the evaporator unit is the thing that's inside the room) of most domestic a/c units. If the temperature sensor is a 'remote' type (not inside the evaporator unit), it usually resides near the return air inlet.

    The evap unit should be mounted no higher than about 2.5 metres from floor level.
    Idiots! I'm surrounded by idiots!
