Phuket needs its ‘aircon’, says poll

PHUKET: Most of the people living or staying in Phuket cannot go without air conditioning, even if it is just to take the edge of the heat before going to bed, according to the latest online poll by The Phuket News.

A total of 17 per cent of respondents to the poll said they could not go without air conditioning at all, responding that they “always” use their air conditioning: “Normally it is working all day, even during the green season.”

A further 18% said that they used their air conditioning “only during really hot days”, but 34% of respondents marked that they regularly used their “aircon”, but only to cool down the bedroom before going to sleep.

Only 6% of respondents said they had their aircon switched off most of the time, voting: “I try to limit my use due to financial/environmental reasons.”

However, tipping the balance back towards more natural living, 25% of all respondents to the poll said they never used air conditioning, “I am okay with the heat and there are other ways to cool down.”
