DEWA and AC costs
My family is planning to move to Dubai in early February from the US. My husbands company does a split pay, where a part of his salary is paid bi-weekly in USD to our normal account and whatever amount we tell them to send to the UAE will be paid out monthly in AED. We're trying to set up a budget so we know how much to send in AED. They are paying our rent and car, but we need to pay utilities and other expenses We're planning to rent a 2 bedroom + maids in JBR/Marina area probably about 1400 square feet. I've heard we should plan roughly 650AED for DEWA, but I'm a little confused about the air conditioning. Here are our Heat and AC costs are included in the electrical/gas usage but from what I understand you pay separately for air conditioning? If anyone can provide some more info on how this works, and a rough estimate on the costs, we'd be really grateful. Thanks!
