    Down here in Phuket, it's hot even in the wet season.

    Today has been particularly nippy in the house, so I've been drinking plenty of piping hot tea - I even had to close the patio doors. It's now a slightly chilly 28 degrees C.

    Really? Less construction going on in Pattaya than before, or other reasons?

    Maybe you should speed up your quoting process?

    When I had a two bedroom house in BKK (no air con) my lecy and water was combined was rarely over 500 baht. Now in my apartment in Nakon Pathom they are always at least 900 baht (with air con but I never use the fucker)

    The reason for this is if you have a private house you pay 4/5 baht direct to the EAT per unit. Apartments jack up the price to 6/7 baht a unit ... ****s.
    They champion falsehood, support the butcher against the victim, the oppressor against the innocent child. May God mete them the punishment they deserve

    I run a 12K BTU all the time in the upstairs bedroom with the door open so the cold air falls down the stairs and help downstairs.
    During the day while we are down there we run a 24K BTU and shut it down in the evenings when we go up to bed.
    The bill was 4500 Baht last month but it has been awful hot this year, running 100 to 105 degrees F daily. [37 to 41 C.]

    We run 12K in the upstairs bedroom all night set @ 25, and run the down stairs unit of 12K set @ 27.
    The up stairs is at least 12yr old, and down is a new carrier. My bill runs from
    1900B to 2800B per Mo.
    During the day we just let the upstairs get hot and the down stays nice and cool.
    But if they keep raising the rate I think ill look into getting a Listeroid!.

    Mine are set on 28 upstairs and 27 downstairs, but I have bad emfazema and living in the moo ban the air is very dusty with all the farm traffic and since they made the road in front of the house cement and dump trucks dropping large chunks of mud and dirt on it and the PDA farm cars and other traffic driving 80 KPH thru the village the air is so dusty that it gives me continual lung infections that we run the aircons to filter the air too, plus cooler is better seems like for my breathing.

    The AC is only really used 3 days a week (when I'm home) and is set on 26 or 27 degrees. I think the biggest problem is who's paying more than how much it is. I'm sure GoW wouldn't be so bothered if it was me who was paying for it...

    I don't like airconditioning.
    Either the feel of it or the cost.

    My bill is rarely over 650 baht a month.

    Dunno,

    A bit concerned it's going to be high since I spent the first two weeks lying on the heated flooring trying to keep warm.

    Taking 30 minute showers because I was too scared to step out into the colder air.

    i use the a/c in the bedroom every night, got it set on 24 as i likes the cold.

    use it occasionally in the living room when the fans don't keep me cool.

    bill came to 1,700 this month. not too bad considering really.
