I think I know now why most people don’t use air-conditioning units in Thailand. The electricity bill for the first full month, when we only had one air-conditioning unit turned on, was 1668 baht. However, this month it was a whopping 4367 baht! This was mainly due to the homestay people we had at the house. They had the air-conditioning turned on at night as well as during the day. One of them was here for two weeks and the other will be here for nearly a month. In addition, we had the air-conditioning turned on in the office during the day. Ouch, that bill hurt. It is a pity that this bill wasn’t more like the water bill. That one only cost 160 baht! Obviously we are going to have to make an effort this month to cut down on the use of electricity.
