*from George Sweeten*
I bought a house, yes I know it is the easy option.
What size on breaker should I put in do you think if I am getting 3 off 9 BTU and 1 off 12 BTU air con. Plus the usual westerners shower heaters etc. I was suggested to use a 15A breaker by the local thai electricity.
In addition I am building a kitchen to the house so I am still interested in the local Thai scams that are about.
How much did your house cost overall and what was the breakdown of the costs.
>Editor: Here we have a 45 Amp breaker – this was the size required by the city, as we had a larger 63 Amp installed originally and had to remove it and put in the 45 to get the electric approved. All the houses here use 45 A and it is sufficient for everything. Please review the [electric info page in the main site]( http://www.coolthaihouse.com/infoelectric.htm “electric info”).
>Best way to avoid being ‘scammed’ – be the one buying the materials. Controls corner cutting to save on material cost.
>Coolthaihouse cost breakdown = 1 million. 100,000 baht finishing (curtains, gutters, water filtration, etc), exterior roof = 120k, inside roof = 68k, gate and surrounding house metal = 28k, perimeter wall = about 35k.
