    Le Balcon des Jasses Lucy with portable air conditioners everything is contained in one unit with wheels. There is really no installation involved, because they come with an exhaust hose which emits the hot air and you can put it in a partially opened window. In my case I chose to drill holes in a thin part of the wall which gives to the outside and placed the AC units so that they exhaust the hot air outside.

    You just plug them into an electricity socket and switch them on. What I am now doing is that with each plug I fitted a radio controlled on / off switch (really simple - no installation) and I can switch the power on or off. Here is a link to the switches: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Programmable-Electrical-Household-Appliances-Operating/dp/B01FX9U0WA/ref=sr_1_2?s=diy&ie=UTF8&qid=1533616941&sr=1-2&keywords=radio+controlled+socket

    Just one word of warning - portable air conditioners make more noise than split type air conditioners.

    What I do in terms of saving electricity is putting the main control outside their rooms, once they are out for a tour or something we switch off the aircon control and just put it back on when they arrived.

    Second: our advertising for our dorm rooms is fan room but if the guests would be greater than 5 I give free upgrade of aircon during sleeping time which is from 10pm to 6am. They are oaying for fan room yet they enjoy the aircon. There is an element of surpirse for sure they will be happy about it. Though this is only applicable for dorm rooms and backpackers.

    3rd goal is to save for solar system - saving money from electricity and saving mother earth. Big investment but will give good effects for saving in general.

    What about the noise? I had a portable ac before but had to give it away for free since it made a lot of noise. I now installed ac in the rooms but i tell guests to turn it off when not in the room otherwise I will have to charge extra since it is waste of energy....

    Lee  Yes, the noise can be a problem. Newer ones are quieter but of course never as quiet as the split type.

    Malapascuabudgetinn You raised a point, which though not directly related to AC is still important. Don't you go into guests' rooms when they are not there? I do it to clean the breakfast things and switch off all the lights heaters etc which they leave switched on.

    I clean room, bathroom, change tawel (if on the floor) new fresh flower and drinking water, when visitor arrive back, a nice clean room, clean bed, light on, AC on, if needed, and always two glass ogf local wine for good night. But, most people are having evening dinner here.

    Joey, just one things, SPOIL your clients, do anything unexpected, give people what people want (its the same you want when when you book a Hotel room)

     

    Its a hard start, but when you get use to accept the cost of, heating, water, and electricity, its the ultimate business idea from home if you like it.

    Hi from Lucy

    Just a review score I want to share with you, I translate from French.

    This people just stay one night and had dinner.

    Un petit paradis !

    The kindness of the couple. Never seen. Dinner rich and delicious. Incredible breakfast. Very quiet location. From your arrival to your departure we are at the little care for you without encroaching on your privacy.
    Everything was perfect.

    And 10, it make me happy, and keep going.

    But last two month I already had 19 x 10
