Hi all, went down to courts to ask about aircon recently, seems like they highly recommend fujitsu brand at the moment cos of some smart chip feature. Know nuts about air-con, so am looking for a good Sys3 for my parents' HDB house. Any advice?

The model is:-

Fujitsu Sys 3 Inverter
AOAG24LAT3 / ASAG09LJ x3
CU 24K / FCU 9K x3
At the price of $3,139

Or is there any other choices/brands I should look out for? Thanks!
Do not buy Fujitsu.

My Fujitsu Inverter broke so many times, the actual cost of the unit over 5 years costs more than $8K ! Sometimes blower working but not cold at all.

I think today it finally died.

Fujitsu nowadays are generally considered OK, compared to 5 years ago.

Better to buy proven brands, that has good track record.

Redo air-con piping & installation, need incur extra cost because my interior design specially designed with wood to cover up the piping. Imagine young couples getting need BTO with no experience.

No more penny wise, pounds foolish.

The best option is not to conceal trunking. You will never know when you'll need to replace them.

Anyway, the quality of the aircon unit should have nothing to do with the trunking.

Angry Do not buy aircons from Best Tech and Mitsubishi

Hi,

I am unable to recommend an aircon agent or brand to go for but i can certainly recommend that you do not go with Best Tech and Mitsubishi.

I got a Mitsubishi Inverter system 4 from Best Tech late last yr and only started using it when I got married early this year. Immediately, I realised that the aircon power was weak in all the rooms and in some rooms, the aircon would give a running water sound. In addition, when it rained hard, water would leak into my master bedroom through the conduit that connects the compressor unit to the aircons in my flat.

It took weeks before Best Tech and the Mitsubishi technicians would agree to change the compressor unit and put some sealant to the conduit.

But the problem was not solved. The aircon in my study room would blow hot and cold - literally! Somedays the aircon would be strong and other days, it would be weak. But it still produces the running water sound from time to time.

However, a new problem has emerged. A foul and pungent smell is released when I switch on the aircon in my master bedroom.

I keep getting problems from Best Tech and Mitsubishi despite paying thousands of dollars for their lousy product. I tell them to com down to solve my problem and till this day, nothing is solved. Bloody idiots they are!

Price check

Hi, just got the quote from my dealer after a site survey.

- mitsubishi inverter system 1 9000btu+bracket + power supply = $1550.

Need AC for my room which is not the MBR. I don't have the bracket & power supply. Piping needs to go from MBR through storeroom to my room. Staying in a 3NG. AC only on during sleep. Is the price quoted ok? And should I go for non-inverter instead? need your advice. TIA

Anyone bought air-con from Gain City?? Are they good?? Was quoted $2050 Sys2 Inverter Mit HI + $150 for bracket and $359 for 5yrs warranty. Any way to bargain the price?

Find it weird... Price $2050 given does not incl the $359 5yrs warranty.
I was quoted:

Installation warranty 3 years.

Excluded items are as follow,

Stainless Steel Bracket = $150.00
Upgrade 1/2" Armaflex Insulation = $120.00
Upgrade SWG 22 copper pipe = $60.00
Dismantle & disposal old aircon = $0
1+4 years Extended Warranty = $399 for Mitsubishi Heavy & $439 Mitsubishi Electric respectively

Installation lead time is approximately 3 to 4 weeks from date of purchase.

Previously MXY3A28VA System 3 Inverter was $3199, now it went up to S$ 3,649.00,
to add up those extra, will cost me close to $4K.

Just want to share on my experience with All Best IMM.

I have bought an air-con STARMEX INVERTER from them on 4th July and the salesman have told us we do not need to change our piping as it was the more durable kind that were used 10 years ago. Subsequently, the technician came to install late last week and by saturday, the aircon is not blowing cold air. We called them up and the same technician came over and said the gas pressure is leaking and will have to change the piping. This is ridiculous! We only have the aircon for 2 days! And to add on, the technician said it is due to the new refrigerant R410A that were used on the new aircon. Why they did not inform us early!?

Any aircon experts here can recommend me on what will best for this case? All Best suggested to change pipes or should I call another company for a second opinion?

Thanks.

i supposed u just wanna changed the aircon only, right?

so no big deal la, just change pipes lor. even if you have done the test and found out that it was already leaking, u also need to change pipes.

if change pipe, i suggest u get outside aircon contractor.
