My Antminer consumes 400W, which corresponds to
0.4 kW * 24h * 0.15 EUR/kWh = 1.44 EUR/24h in electricity costs.

At 180 GH/s I make 6.31 EUR/24h

With increase in difficulty the earnings will drop (unless the BTC price increases).

With summer coming up I need to use air condition. Does anyone know how much AC power is needed to cancel out 1 kWh of heat? I mean, as the miner produces one kWh of heat, how much power will the AC use to prevent the temperature from rising?

I fear mining soon will not be profitable if AC is needed. If I instead let windows open and mine at 30 degrees C, will the ant miner survive? Perhaps I better under-clock it?

I'm pretty sure in China the normal ambient temp in summer is more than 30C, so it'll be perfectly fine.

If your just running 1 ant, i think you'll be fine with heat. Last summer in 100+ degree days i had 10 overclocked 7950's running with just box fans and the room was 88.
