Recently had a long-term paying guest that abused the air-con and wasted so much electric that, when my bill came for that period, I only broke even on the let.
I've since got a separate 'pay-as-you-go' box fitted on that one air-con circuit so that guests can use it as and when they wish. Only had bloke who made an issue of it.
My question is this. Is it usual to charge extra if a guest is EXPECTED to use air-con or should it be factored into the daily-rate?
I've always said that common-sense should prevail and that everyone should have front patio and rear bedroom windows open to generate a nice thru-draft.
What do others think?
