Discussion in 'The Pub' started by pete777, Jan 8, 2009.

  1. im not a summer person, gimme the cold weather. im drunk and still cant sleep cos its too hot (hence why im on this at this time of morning) i wish i had air con

  2. try attempting to go to sleep at 8pm ish so you can get up at 230 for work at 330am...

    this is hard, only had 3-4 hrs sleep last few nights...

    although i spent yesterday at bondi in the sun and drank alot of coronas so i kinda passed out last night
  3. I have and I think I will always have; a split-system air conditioner in my bedroom.

    It is the best monies you will ever spend.
  4. Then move down to Melbourne, it is f**king cold today, had to wear my winter kit on the way home from work this morning!

    But at least in Sydney its usually either hot or cold, and not both in the 1 day :LOL:

    Air Conditioning is the bestest invention :grin:
  6. our house stays hot all night and into the next morning even if the next day is cold.
    i just have a $20 pedestal fan pointing at my bed. does the trick :D i find the heat makes me sleepy so i'm ok. i just get up about 3am to turn the fan off and then go back to sleep.

    i would agree that quality of sleep is better in colder weather though. and snuggling is awesome after a freezing cold afternoon/evening and you get into your bed with your electric blanket on 3 :D
  7. ive got one in my room, i crank it on full like all the time.. i live in the attic so its needed majorly.. gets like a furnace in there!....

    the ac dosent cool like it used to.. maybe about 5yr old... ive cleaned the filters.. anyone know if home ACs need regas?
  8. Ducted reverse-cycle aircon FTW
  9. Any a/c unit can drop or partially drop its refrigerant charge over time. Some are easier to charge than others though.

    There'd be a pair of hoses leading to the compressor outside. I think if its low on gas one of these can sometimes developed a ice coating, full on ice. Don't quote me though, I just hang around frigies in my work. :shock:
