They have a window unit one as well, currently on sale.  If you don't have a Costco membership and no one that can help you with one I can order online and have it shipped to your place.  Just need you to shoot me the cash and your mailing address.  You can PM me if you are interested.  I'd die without an AC, lol.

From what I can see Butt-Crack is almost always the first to troll
other users, come back with a snide remark, put someone down
or otherwise derail a thread. He/She seems to really get off on
seeing anything he /she wrote, regardless of how inane.

Vornados work great if you don't want to go the AC route.

I sleep every night with the fan blowing air either directly on my face (if am hot) or against the wall by the head of the bed to get a fresh air feeling. AND the a/c is on nonstop at night in July & August.

I have been doing so for years.

But if one night I pass away, I'm sure at least one local will note the fan was on and another will nod.

Well, in truth I was actually a believer too, until I read that article from the Korea Herald.

It's the inane commentary that attracts me to this board, but often even more so by posters that are actually taking themselves seriously! ;D

Thanks for the offer.  I have a Costco membership, but I picked up an air circulator yesterday.  It seemed to do the job.  A/C would be better, but hopefully this'll do.

Guaranteed.  There could be a gas explosion, but if they dig through the rubble and find you in bed with a fan next to you, cause of death will be fan death.

Mine is working well here at home.  (Home early due to immigration visit.)    Nice and cool indeed.

Congratulations on owning an A/C. I own one as well. We're both Rockefellers!

We've got four aircons running for about eight hours a day.
The electrical bill is quite eye-watering.

On Jeju I had a 2-month bill of 600,000+ won one summer.

Now, since I live in the same building as the hagwon, apparently my apartment isn't on an independent meter (the hagwon owner owns the building, even helped design its construction as its original owner); i say this because my monthly electricity bill is between 3800 and 7000 won despite heavy a/c summer use and heavy space heater use in winter. :) I feel pretty lucky now.

Damn, you could convert your apartment to a skating rink.

You're right, it could be worse. Thanks.  I only have to deal with this heat for a small part of the year.

Been running this puppy pretty much non stop for the last week. Will be too scared to look at my gas bill at the end of the quarter.



What, I miss about Korea is the floor heating and doubled glazed windows in my previous 50 pyang apartment.
