A/C Bills and rental guests ***rant*** : British Expat Discussion Forum

by Jonathan

Spiraling electricity costs from BL&P are causing major problems for landlords. How would you manage expensive A/C units in rental properties?

I have a bit of a problem. I rent my home in St Philip out to holiday-makers for short term rent… Basically 1 week/2 week etc etc.

I always ask the guests to respect the A/C which is in all 3 bedrooms and to leave it off during the day. In all reality, set at 23 and auto is perfect for a good night sleep.

Today I get my BL&P elec bill for November … 989$ BDS. During this time I have had guests for about 2.5 weeks. They have had the A/C on 17 and full all day and night !!!
