Inverters in all aircons, fridge..

 

Use class A++(+) if available for heavy grade appliances

 

Replace all the fancy hallogene, incadescent bulbs with only led bulbs (if available and possible of course).

 

Why not try a solar rig ? ? ? (am I missing something here)

When did you register? We didn't until 6 months ago with one house however if you scroll down under the graph there are 15 spaces, the top ones are populated but only from the time we registered. Another has 7 populated

I registered and have been using the app since August last year... I tried to scroll down too...

The last bill was around 650 baht and I was happy with that. Two bedroom house, one AC.

I do notice a spike when using the oven more.

please no wild assumptions gentlemen. except for the master bedroom there is no area in our home which is cooled below 26.5ºC and the water of our pool equires heating, not cooling.

 

correct is that the enclosed pool area can be on demand airconditioned when it is used as an alternate living room (october till march). cooling it during the hot months would most probably add another 10-12k Baht to the bill.

you are missing a lot. inverters consume like conventional aircons the same kWh based on cooling demand. that in some cases their use results in moderate savings has different reasons (associated with disadvantages).

 

lighting takes the smallest share of consumption (average single family home). LEDs emit an ugly light (my personal opinion).

 

solar is much more expensive than public grid (return on investment is abysmaly low). try running aircons via solar and cry.

 

who or what are class A++(+) appliances?

I was refering to the EU Energy label and if interested, below it will be better explained. Obviously, it is not the norm here in Thailand.

And for a specialist on the topic as you seem to be, I am convinced that this article in the Economic Times could be of some humble interest.

If you want a continuous record of bills and consumption, try this spreadsheet I made. You can modify it for water too, if you want to.
