Re: Question about old A/C and electric usage

I want to take this opportunity to thank all of those who have contributed their comments here. I think I understand the problems now. Yea, I really screwed up when I let the A/C guy tell me that he couldn't replace the leaking coil in my original unit, and he suggested that I replace the entire out...

Re: Question about old A/C and electric usage

It is possible for an older, bigger unit in increasingly hot conditions to cost more. Are you comparing this latest April electric bill with the last 7 April's? Yes! My units of electric usage went from 452 last April to 826 this April. Sure, it's hotter this year, but certainly not that much hotter.

Question about old A/C and electric usage

My 8 year old LG 18,000 BTU living room unit recently sprang a Freon leak in the outside unit, and rather than buy a new system I opted for an older reconditioned 21,000 BTU outside unit. It's guaranteed for 6 months and works great, but this month's electric bill was 1000 Baht higher than my previo...

Re: Hospitals?

There is a cancer hospital in Udon Thani Province in Nonsung about 15 km south of the city. It is a Thai Ministry of Health hospital. You need to find a Dr that practices at this hospital. This would also be my recommendation. It's a fairly new and very clean hospital and the staff is very friendly...

Re: insulation???

I believe that the measures your friend has taken are excellent ones, but he still needs an A/C running in the room he occupies, and other doors and windows in the home should be closed. The thing that makes one feel hot and sweaty is the humidity, and the minute you open the doors and windows it wi...

Re: Having trouble with Lazada refund

I finally settled my claim with Lazada and got a partial credit to my Lazada Wallet account. The reason I was never able to use their chat function successfully is because that function is not supported by the Internet Explorer browser, so when I switched to Google Chrome it worked.

Re: needing a good doctor

To get to Dr. Somchai's clinic, head west through the first (southernmost) circle on Sri Suk Road towards the main Police Station. Turn right at the first traffic light past the circle and the clinic will be on the immediate left after the turn. Here is his business card:

Re: women who wear glasses on their bonce

I really don't like talking to somebody who is wearing sunglasses, especially when they are wearing them indoors. My first thought is that it is rude and they are trying to hide something....perhaps their guilt over a matter. The eyes are the window to the soul and some people just don't want to be ...

Re: Having trouble with Lazada refund

Yes, I have used Lazada dozens of times and have never had a problem with a return, but this time things were all different. I am familiar with how to request a return/refund online as I have had to do it several times, but now it's not the same. Perhaps those who have responded thus far on this top...

Having trouble with Lazada refund

A few weeks ago I ordered a computer keyboard with a backlight from Lazada.com. On the webpage for the product was a YouTube video detailing the attributes of the keyboard, but when I received it the English lettering and other symbols were not recognizable and hard to find. They certainly didn't lo...

Re: Earplugs

You can buy these earplugs in the safety section of any hardware store like Thai Watsaidu. The noise cancelling type are exactly the same as swimming earplugs and you can get them as cheaply as 29 Baht. I've used them for years and they work great for noise cancellation or swimming.

DuiDui, I totally understand why you asked the question, for I have wondered the same thing ever since I came here.
