Yeah the living room's unit is 24k BTU. Rooms are at 10k BTU each so total of 44K BTU. Like overkill or a freezer already a nor? Haha.

And I'm not too sure if the pipes are going to be concealed in the walls, but yeah, I'm staying in a condo. Was told that the concealing cost is at about sgd1.5k already.

Waiting patiently for gurus' two cents.
firstly, i ain't no guru. but Terumo really knows his stuff.

imo, if you're staying in Condo, there should be existing concealed pipes. So u are changing exisiting concealed pipes? Is that why it is so exp?

but if your main con (pun intended ) is oredi doing the concealment, perhaps you've no choice but to go with this price.

But as core2max pointed out, maybe it's really that exp.

the compressor is pretty monsterous! 38k BTU!

It looks like the piping is dirty... you can use wet vacuum to suck the water from pipe end (normally located in your toilet)... at the same time, ask your friend to pour warm water from the pipe at your fan coil unit (FCU).

I had this problem before (my old aircon)... pipe is dirty (a lot of gel kind of things)...
one time, i had a choked piping... so the condensed water cannot flow.

and it was late, so difficult to get serviceman at that hr.

I found some drain-declog and carefully pour in the drainage... and after a while, a lot of 'junk' flowed out at the other end!

Question Leaking FCU

Really appreciate all your responses and helpful advises.

Previously also thot it was jelly & dirt that clogged drainage. Did declogging with chemical twice plus pouring hot water as advised. Also tried vacuum process.

After above treatment, the water still drip during operation.

Sorry to trouble all of you.

Most likely your Carrier blower unit tray dirty or coil choked. Need chemical clean.

Pls feedback...looking forward for reviews from midea...cause i check with my friend...so far customer feedback is value for money...i hope to find out more before purchasing...
OK finally it was installed today,
took almost the whole day because the old setup and my current trunking route is different.
heard from my family member that it is also delayed due to the 2 installer argued and 1 left.

when using the old system my parents always set it to 18 degree Celsius and still feel that is not cold, as this new system they only needs to set it to 23 degree Celsius its cold enough for them.

of cos i am not saying that this aircon is good cos it is still new.

anyway the reasons why I am changing is due to the high electrical bill, so its my main concern.
Looking at the meter rotation so far, i think it better definitely.

will update when the bill comes

HI Harmank and Sinori,


I am intending to buy Midea Luna A95 system 2. So far how you guys think of Midea? Is it noisy, both the outdoor and indoor unit? Is the aircon cooling?

I was about to buy Midea just now but got one salesman say dont buy...got customer complain not cold. I dont know how true.

Thumbs up Midea

hi all, seen alot of feedbacks...but seriously speakin...i seen comments like getting the japanese brand of aircon...
today i went to my good friend work place,to enquire more about aircon...finally i decided to place an order on midea sys 3 28k.
actually,i found a few pointers from my friend...

1.air con technologhy and home appliance tech are quite stagnant over the last few yrs...thats why brands start to input air purifilying into aircon to increase their USP and features,even his china engineer told him if it is IT and audio video sector...it would be more realible to purchase product from big companys in the industry...

2.japanese brand are not longer made in country of origin...mostly made in china,thailand and vietnam...comparing china,thai and the viets, china have better technology...even now china can sent astronaut up to moon,not every other asia countries can follow..

3.Midea is the biggest manufacturer and exporter for H.A and Aircon in china and also 5th biggest in the world...for my friends who visited china,vietnam,australia and K.L they have seen this brand either in hotels or offices and even big advertisment on streets.
Midea is entering Singapore with their series of H.A products at a very affordable prices...
Midea main stream business is actually manufacturer...or wat we call O.E.M...so actually their products ranged from aircon,fans to H.A products are already in SG but under a different brand...
i thinks spare parts and after sales should be available on large scales,and also the brands they manufacturer for are reputable brands from jap,european and local brands...which my friend told me not to tell ppl...sorry on this part...
4.he also inform me a most important part...Midea is adjusting the price higher from next week onwards,as the launch promo end in conjuction with GSS...

so after all the considerations, i bought the air con from my friend, as i dont want to buy when the price go up...

For ur considerations...:

this is wat i bought.installation earliest available 05/08/11

LUNA 9A4 SYS 3
outdoor unit 28k BTU = 12k + 9k + 9k indoor units @ $2168
extend warranty from courts 2+3 yrs @ $299
bracket $130
dismantle FOC
free piping up to 10m per blower...

i think its quite a good deal...

Midea

HI Zen,

Thank you for your honest feedback. I fine that Abeyonic upgrading cost is generally cheaper than gain city and courts.

I did open the front cover of the aircon and was trying to compare with the rest of the brands at gain city.

I found out that the workmanship and design of the components inside is poor. Wire connecting to the front led is dangling. filter looks soft and clumsy. Whats that black velvet thing they place at the inner flip?

Wont it get stained after a long time once the cool air condences on it?

I'm also wondering why the parts only 2 years warranty whereas the rest is 5 years.

And also, i'm not too sure how reliable are their ion generator. If yo were to compare with sharp and samsng catalogu lots of industrial accrditation and seals were shown. but the MIdea catalogue, never show anything frmo industries.

These are just my worries. I dont mind trying Midea but just that I'm moving to my new house soon. So need to invest something long term.
Even if i want to buy, i will buy it before 25 July during the special discount.

Can i have all your feedbakcs on the above?
