Hi everyone, we are new to Dubai and I just received my first quarterly bill from my residence for A/C and was surprised by a huge monthly A/C maintenance fee:
3000 AED A/C (per quarter)
2000 AED in maintenance fees (per quarter)
= total bill 5000 AED per quarter
So almost half of the bill is maintenance fees !
The residence said this maintenance cost (calculated at Dh 40 per ton for a 17-ton capacity A/c unit) is normal for Dubai, but I can't find anything about this online.
Has anyone else had this experience?
Note it's a quite large 3 bedroom "villa" unit in a multi-unit building but we are only 2 people living there and don't use A/C often. Also its in Jumeirah 3 if that's useful.
Thanks so much for your help!
