In the summer in Taipei, my 2 room place is kept cool by this old second hand air conditioner my school gave me for free. It makes the air feel cold, clammy and unnatural, and I think it wastes a lot of electricity. My electric bill during the summer is always over NT$3000.
I’m thinking of getting a dehumidifier instead of getting a new AC. It’s the humidity I hate, not the heat. It’s not cheap, but it seems to me a good dehumidifier would pay for itself when I wasn’t running the old rickety machine very often. Can anybody who has used both and has done more Taiwanese summers than me help me out?
